    well this means that the game's using all of your cpu which it shouldn't really do unless loads is going on screen and the graphics card needs some help

    it could be that the game conflicts with one of your running processes, try googling something like "sword of the new world conflicts" and see what comes up

    ahhh :D that could be it then

    sounds like the programs conflict with each other, you'll either have to keep disabling the firewall when you play or get another firewall, up to you :)

    I don't use panda but a few good programs my firewall I never turned it off and it works with it.. AV/Spyware/Any system cache programs exit out of them. Keyboard enhancers also. But one thing I've notice the PC with it's own sound card not on MOBO but in PCI slot will stop causing those freezings too. Less load on your CPU and let the processor on the sound card to the offload work. Still need to turn off the protection software too.
