Origin 184.108.40.2061 Game stutters and overlay issues
We all know Origin's overlay never played that nice, well now it will continue to try and launch itself every 15-30 seconds causing a drive spike and a huge framerate dip, easiest solution is to disable the overlay, alternatively is to end all processes that are interfering with it, like FRAPS, DXTORY, RivaTuner skins like MSI Afterburner and EVGA Precision. Also stealthy ones like Razer Synapse has a process called RazerIngameEngine.exe that I assume is for their stats feature which Origin now interferes with and no longer works. End that process and you can still use Synapse instead of the whole app.
Origin can't connect/can't log in
If Origin cannot connect to the internet and won't let you log in, try opening the Command Prompt and running this command:
netsh winsock reset
Origin Offline/You must be online the first time you log in
- This can happen with Windows / Origin update.
