Rainbow Six Siege stutters every few seconds or so. My PC is definitely more than capable to run the game well but I have no idea why it still stutters. It has happened to me in other games, like CSGO. I have run virus scans and updated Windows.
In this context, stuttering is when R6S freezes for about 0.5-1 second every 5-10 seconds.
I have tried this guide to fix my issue, including some of the comments' suggestions, like uninstalling Microsoft C++ 2010 Redistributable Package. Even running Anti-Virus and Anti-Malware software does not help.
