Let us know if it makes a difference in a measurable and reproducible way.
Skepticism is a healthy trait in my book, but 10 pages worth of users following the procedure and reporting back performance boosts is plenty proof don't you think?

Awesome, someone finally found a fix. Nice detective work.

Just a note, I don't have a problem with Microsoft Security Essentials. Great AV BTW.

What's the console command to view your FPS?

I went in game briefly - I noticed my game stopped stuttering randomly.

Valve give him a community weapon.

view fps with cl_showfps 1 or net_graph 1

I'm at home right now so I won't have to suffer the low FPS on my laptop for another 2 weeks until the holidays are over, but this sounds very interesting, thank you!

This didn't seem to do much for me in TF2, but it helped a bunch in both L4D and L4D2. Thanks.

Not going to do it until I start dropping under 60 consistently but good to know that it's helping people out.

I don't doubt there's a problem. I'm just sceptical that everyone's having the same one.
I suspect the AV problem would lead to downward spiking, not consistently low FPS. I also suspect half the people in this thread wouldn't know the difference.

Coincidentally, I've been having a downward spiking problem since Halloween. I finally fixed it today, not by disabling NOD32 (don't ask), but by deleting 750MB of screencaps. Damned if I know how that one works

Whoa whoa whoa, it improved L4D 1 and 2???

OK... So could this be something STEAM-wise and not just TF2???

If anybody experiences something like this please let us know by posting here, its our best bet to get things fixed as soon as possible (by providing Valve with all this info).

For the next few hours I will be sleeping so I'm sorry if I cant respond and keep helping out.

Once I get back (I sleep very little) I will resume answering questions, in the mean time I ask you to both keep this thread floating around in the first page (lets face it, everybody should at least know this can help), keep offtopic and/or trolling to a minimum please.

Happy New Year everyone! consider this as my gift to you for making the essence of this wonderful game!

Where are the folders for those? I'd add them to my Exclusions list on Avast if I knew where they were.

Huh, well, that's interesting. I really haven't played anything much lately other than TF2, and I've never checked what my FPS is in L4D/L4D2.

Does the same console code to show FPS work in those too? Or is it a different command?
