It's interesting, but I've recently started encountering this same issue. I didn't have it before, but it's a problem now. Not entirely sure what caused this to happen, is there some windows system tool I can use to see what changes I've made to my system (installs / programs / services) in the past 2 weeks?

My specs are the following:

Nvidia geforce 670

Intel 5820K

32gb ddr4

Win 7 64-bit

SSD + HDD

I've tried the game on SSD, but it doesn't seem to help. My current performance is similar/identical to that of the second video, and the game used to work fine 1-2 weeks ago.

You can certainly check Add/Remove programs to see the list of installed programs as well as checking Windows updates I believe.

You can also check what runs on startup:

Click Start, run

Type msconfig

You should then be able to see your startup entries, and what is/is not enabled and make desired changes.

You may get a notification that MSConfig was run at next boot-up, but you can just ignore that.
