More specifically, ransomware protection is causing my freezing issue and disabling that stops it. When I play the game Fortnite (Save the World game mode) I consistently get freezes every 3 minutes that last 3-4 seconds. This freezing issue also occurs outside of just Fortnite or any other video game. It also occurs when chrome is open, watching videos or even when my PC is idle, but not as frequently. I disable ransomware protection and the freezing issue stops. I can reproduce this 100% of the time. When ransomware protection is running the most obvious way to test it is to open Fortnite and let the game run, my PC will freeze every 3 minutes for 3-4 seconds.
