Hey everyone, I am at work so I can't post the specific error code; all I remember is that it is a DCOM error of some kind. So anyway, what is happening is that almost every 5 minutes there is a momentary stutter with the laptop. The only way I can describe this is that I could be watching a video on my laptop, or clicking somewhere in the OS, and everything freezes for a fraction of a second and then resumes. I have tried multiple suggestions online including changing permission to keys in REGEDIT to updating BIOS and drivers for everything. When I get home i'll post the error code in Event Viewer, but I can't but wonder if maybe it has something to do with the switchable graphics since my laptop has a GTX 1060 and the Intel Graphics. I noticed yesterday when I loaded up Metro Last Light on it that it was performing terribly at all resolutions and settings so I looked in Nvidia Control Panel and noticed that the Intel graphics were set to run with that game which is strange b/c I never selected that manually and usually is set to automatically switch I am assuming. In any case, if anyone has any ideas in the meantime i'd appreciate the insight. TL,DR: My laptop freezes for a fraction of a second and not sure what is causing it no matter what I am doing about every 5 minutes.
