I recently came back to LOTRO after several months. When I decided to come back to PC games I reset my computer to factory standards to get rid of numerous unwanted background processes and malware. I downloaded some MMO's I played before the factory reset with 15-25fps, but I've had the same horrible decline of fps in every game I've tried. I can't even get past the character creation on account of the lag. the fps is below 5fps now so there's no possible way I can play any game that slow. I've already tried updating my drivers and directx with no luck. In no way, shape, or form do I have a gaming computer. But I have played this game and others before on this system with much better fps. I'm currently trying to save up for an actual gaming PC but I just need something to do until then. If anyone has an idea for my problem I'm open to suggestions.
