Ubisoft Identifies Third-Party Software Conflicts

Ubisoft Support tweets a support hint, saying that performance issues in its games may be caused by third-party software (thanks DSOGaming). The tweet points to this list of programs possibly causing conflicts. The idea is to party like it's 1999 and kill off these background processes, many of which are specifically game related:
The following list of examples is not exhaustive and advisory only:

Fullscreen overlays Overwolf
Hardware monitoring software MSI Afterburner, Riva Tuner
Peer-to-Peer software BitTorrent, uTorrent
RGB Controllers or game optimisers Razer Synapse, SteelSeries Engine
Streaming application OBS, XSplit Gamecaster
Software impacting applications f.lux, Nexus Launcher
VPN software Hamachi
Video chat services Skype
Virtualising software Vmware
VoIP applications Discord, TeamSpeak


We also recommend disabling experimental features available through NVIDIA GeForce Experience and Radeon Settings.
