Thank you for the update. This literally started happening in the middle of a gaming session. I have had the problem before, but it was with a wireless network card that I no longer use and it was before I started using Malwarebytes. I now using a different wireless adapter that plugs into my onboard ethernet port. I rebooted my system, pulled up DPC Latency Checker and turned the protection module on and off watching the lag spike and then consistently go red whenever it was on. I can post screen and my system specs if that would help.
