I've just upgraded my OS from Windows 7 to Windows 8. Everything runs smooth, after I have updated most drivers. My fps in games even increases a little (about 10) in general.

I don't hate metro so I haven't done much tweak to the system.

However when I play counter strike : GO, I have ping spikes going to 500 about every 10 minutes. Sometimes fps drops suddenly too. I believe it's some process causing the problem. But it lasts only like 3 seconds. When I tab out and open task manage to check the process I can't hunt it down. :mad: I didn't have the problem when I had windows 7.

Any suggestion on how to catch the guilty one ?

I don't have this problem myself but I do have CS GO.

My suggestion is search a program that can log network connections and program can graph network processes to pin point the culprit.

I think I've found it. It's a group of "searchprotocalhost.exe" "searchhere.exe" "searchthere.exe" "indexhereandthere.exe"

I then disabled windows search services, along with "windows media crap share service", which depends on the former service.
