I have Windows Defender running in the background. I also use a combination of CCleaner and MalwareBytes to monitor my system. These two programs do not run in the background.
In terms of defragmentation, my system automatically defrags the hard drive. I checked defrag and it appears my drives are in OK status. The two volumes with strange names refer to my system recovery files. From what I've read, I should not worry about them.
As far as I know, I have the latest updates to my video drivers. This is what I currently have.
Also, when my system is idle, this is what my system resources look like.
The only thing that I remember about my setup is that I have a 32 GB mSATA SSD along with my 2 TB mechanical hard drive. The SSD is used as a system cache, from what I've read. Here is Dell's snapshot of my system configuration.
Also, I tried minimizing the total frames from 16500 to 4000. It appears that it did not help. When I click play, there's still a lag - with the audio track playing first before I see the animation.
I also timed the loading time of this particular project. When I launch CT and open this project first, it takes about 70 seconds to load. The loading status bar gets stuck at 60% for a while before the project loads.
