You can fix this issue using the Intelligent standby list cleaner app. Use the ISLC by following these steps.

4) Fullscreen optimizations & High DPI scaling

You should disable the full screen optimizations and change the high DPI settings on Windows 10.

  • Then right click on avengers.exe
  • Select Properties
  • Go to the Compatibility tab.
  • Tick the Disable fullscreen optimizations

5) Power Options

Low energy (power saver) mode may cause performance issues in games, especially on a laptop. It is possible to increase performance by changing the power plan on your Windows PC.

  • Type Power into the Windows search box
  • Select the Power & sleep settings
  • Click the Additional power settings
  • Select the High performance (or Ultimate Performance if you have) on the Preferred plans section.

Note: If the CPU temperature gets too high and you experience fps drop, set it to Balanced.

6) High CPU Usage Fix

If the CPU usage is around 100% while playing Marvel's Avengers and you experience performance issues such as freezing, stuttering, you can fix your issues by limiting the CPU.

  • Download and install the Process Lasso
  • Run the Process Lasso application.
  • Launch Marvel's Avengers game.
  • Press ALT + TAB
  • Go to the Process Lasso app and find the avengers.exe in “All processes” list, then right-click on it.

You do not have to adjust the graphics settings to the same as in the list, but it is useful to check this list and apply your own settings.
