Lag and Being Booted From Session

I have been having problems with my Shadow recently and was wondering if anyone else was having the same issues. I use FFMPEG through the command line tool and it has been ungodly slow. Right now I am trying to extract frames from a video and it is going at a rate of 0.109. The video is 1920x1080 and 2 minutes long and it has taken 20 minutes and it’s only at the 1:40 mark. I also have experienced a lot of lag when just navigating from one program to another. There seems to be a second or two delay and if I have a prompt that comes up like Admin privileges then the screen goes black and I have to exit and close it and turn it off and then restart Shadow again. 


I also get kicked off randomly for no apparent reason. It will just boot me and I have to go back into it and it isn’t locking me out or booting me because of inactivity. 


Anyone else have this problem or know what could be the problem? It has gotten bad in the last month and before that it worked fine as I have had a subscription for over two years. My set-up is with an ethernet cable with 70mb/s and my internet speed at home is the second fastest available speed through Cox and I believe it’s 150mb/s download.

Is the CPU of your Shadow always at 100%?
