Problem Details:
When I am in menus (main menu, song selection etc) and in the editor, I get random lag spikes for a fraction of a second at a time, every few seconds. This has been going on for a few weeks now but I have never bothered to do anything about it because it doesnt happen while im playing maps. But I recently started mapping and the lag makes it really difficult to get timings correct because of the spikes and the distortion that they create.

System specs:
GPU: Geforce GTX 970
CPU: i7-4790k
