That has always been, and probably will always be paramount in eliminating game stutters. Especially CPU intensive sims. There are fundmental, required tweaks that you need to perform on any new PC or OS installation. Remember the OS is designed for the masses, not gamers. There's a ton of "conveniency-oriented" krap running that doesn't need to be. Every time one of these micro-apps performs it's stupid little task, it's a tiny spike in CPU usage, and there is your stutter.
