Well, in overall the lack of performance and optimization in GTAIV is the thing that annoys me most. And im not speaking of illegit copys with cracks downloaded on the web.

I would sugest some support of non-Rockstar people. I think i should suggest you this: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFkqZ5Dk7HQ"]YouTube - GTA IV Ultimate Graphics Tweak[/ame] Gives a bit of work but it really maked the effort.

Cheers.

I know alot of people managed to speed up GTA4 and/or remove the 'extreme lagg' by running it in Compatibillity Mode. Have you tried that yet?

To run well without any lag, and not close any applications, you are best off getting a quad core processor and 4gb memory

Again, you could be surprised. GTAIV - pc reacts very poorly to the most extreme hardware in very higher resolutions. ive seen better performance only with 720p on xbox360. With some mods and tweaking you cange it to almost perfect.

That would be because of your specs.

Please try some Rockstar patches, if the problems insist, try some tweaking and performance mods at websites like gtagarage.com.
