Lag Spike, Freezing, CTD

Since the recent large update of 2.7gb, I have been having non stop problems with this game, which is frustrating as I just purchased it last Sunday.
Anytime I walk away from where my friend and I have set up home, I have HUGE lag spikes that last anywhere from 10 to 30+ seconds. Most of the time the result of this is me being killed. It happens randomly, I’m always doing something different or trying to go in a different direction to avoid the lagged area, no luck. Most of the time it freezes so hard that it seizes up my desktop, crashing Microsoft Explorer.
A couple of other things: It takes ages to get past the initial opening cut scene after starting the game. I usually have to sit through the entire thing before it’s able to load up, before the update I was able to skip this and get into the load screen within seconds.
Loading into the RP server I play in takes anywhere from 1 minute to 5 minutes, generally resulting in being disconnected from the game due to “lost connection”.
I have tried:
Verifying game files, no corrupted files found.
Uninstalling and reinstalling the 2 mods the server runs (Pippa & Fashionista)
Every setting combination possible, including fullscreen/windowed options.

Every other game on my pc works fine, ARK is the other game I play heavily and I have no problems with it.
Any recommendations? Next step is going to be a full reinstall tonight, but if this is a problem that will come up again, I am not going to spend my days reinstalling a game just to RP in.
