Windows 7: World of Warcraft Fix

Windows 7 Beta
 
 

Wow is bit laggy at the moment due to problems with their own client. I have wow installed on "C:\Users\Public" And is running smooth as ever.

You might want to do memory check to see that their working as they should. I had bsod problems with wow on my old computer which had faulty memory.

I noticed, as i only have one user at my Windows 7 beta, that the game installs in c:\Documents and settings\user\Games\World of Warcraft (not sure if there is a subdirectory between user directory and game directory now though, as i am at work right now)

When installing i downloaded the complete installer for game, burning crusade and the Lich king from acount page (wow-europe.com/acount) wich i think made the instalation much cleaner then upgraded from cds and dvds, right?

I noticed that my ex. XP laptop now had some direct-X 10-enabled graphics that wherent there the day before this manover (on xp i also downloaded installers from acount management site), This installation directory by the way is also where my vista computer moved my instalation when upgrading to patch 3.0.8 (i do not know if this was in the patch or has something to du with me deleting the only other user login on that computer though.

Back to Windows 7.... i had a allthrough smooth experience with Windows 7 and WoW untill just recently when i twice same week got bsod reboots... both of the times i was playing Wow and last time i was ofcause in the middle of a raid...

Lately i have aslo experienced some lag on both laptop and the other computers but some times Windows 7-laptop had LESS problem with lag even though both OSX-macbook and Vista had lag at same time, wich would be understandable since three computers connect to WoW server at same time using three different acounts and OS through same D-Link router at a 8Mbps ADSL-line... but for some reason WIndows 7 behaves better mostly but then again *boing* bsod.. it is really cryptic to understand what the blur screen tells me was causing the crash but my guess would be either incopatibility with GPU driver or some overheating problem but i use extra laptop cooler and have no OC. Any one has an idea why i get bsod?

I keep the wow folder on a seperate partition of it's own. that way if my OS crashes and I can't recover it. I dont have to reinstall or download all those damn updates. and with 2 xpac's and the game. that takes alot of time.

I'm investing in a new laptop that comes pre-installed with Vista SP1. I don't want to have problems with BSODs and such, so should I just play WoW with Vista until Win7 is finalized?
