Default Re: 2019.6 freezes every 5 or so seconds

Worked great last night and today whatever I do it freezes every 5 seconds or so for roughly a second, the counters stop and the scroll line stops, Audio continues usually but sometimes it just stops. It's almost unusable now. No new hardware or software installed in the last couple of months so it's out of the blue. Anyone else seeing this?
I'm not a PC guy but it sounds like some other PC/OS process is either spiking the CPU or accessing the disk. I get a similar thing on my Mac if I forget to delay the two backup processes I run while using Pro Tools.
Mac Pro 5,1 3.46 Ghz 12 core, AMD 7970 GPU, SSD boot drive on 6Gb/sec PCIe card, 36GB RAM, MacOS 10.14.6.
Pro Tools Ultimate 2019.10. HDX, UA Octo PCIe cards, HD I/O, C|24 control surface.
Mostly Avid, Waves, Sonnex and UAD Plug-ins
Genelec 1031AP/7070A 5.1 monitoring.
