Question Battlefield 5 movement bug

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone has experienced this bug on battlefield 5. What happens is when I'm running around on the map, my player freezes on the spot, but I can only move left and right, and to move forward again, I have to press the W key again, which is becoming rather annoying. To ensure my keyboard was working correctly, I remapped the forward movement key to E rather than W and still experienced that same bug. I play other games where I don't have that bug, so it leads me to believe it wasn't my keyboard that was causing that movement issue. Is there a setting on the game causing that bug to happen, or is it something to do with the graphic settings?

Does this happen in both SP and MP, or just MP? If it only happens in MP, especially if movement rubberbands when you unfreeze, it's likely a too high ping issue.

I only played SP, and never had it happen. I've also not seen this reported as a bug in my searches, just the entire game freezing at times, not just player movement.

I'm also not sure you can rule out your KB not being the cause, especially if it happens while pressing 3 or more keys at once, which some KBs do not support. I would think a KB of that level would, but it could just be an odd glitch that might require reinstalling the driver for the KB, or another component conflicting. Are you running any RGB lighting software on any of your other brand components for instance?

Yes, it was both MP and SP, but I figured out what was causing my player to freeze randomly. It was a program called TaskbarX that I had running in the background. With me being on windows 11, it wasn't supported, so it was glitching out, causing my player to freeze.
