    OK wing. I could not get that latest information out of your original concern.

    It lags every 5-10 seconds, but this seems to happen only when I open Firefox or any other Web Browser and this slows down the whole computer
    So, if you are using Firefox to browse your PC with the internet disabled, then I have no idea why you are doing that or what your issue may be. Moreover, I certainly don't understand your issue at all now so please continue to follow whs's and Xwe's leads and I hope you can find a solution.

    Today I tried to open cmd prompt and tried to type in "bcdedit /set disabledynamictick Yes" and it solved the problem for a couple of minutes but now it doesn't work anymore. The only thing I can think about is that driver, however I can't do anything to solve this issue without disabling it which means disabling my Internet connection as I previously said. By the way, will downgrading to 32 bit change something?
    EDIT: As I thought it was the Wireless driver... any suggestions?

    I think I've almost fixed it for good... I went into my Intel Pro Wireless's properties, setted Wireless Mode value to 2 since default was 5 (if I set it to 3 it begins the latency though) and then rebooting; however after a few minutes I noticed again about the high latency, I rebooted it once again and I'm actually testing again my system to see if this actually solves the issue or not.
