Windows 7: Warcraft III : Very Troublesome Gaming

Warcraft III : Very Troublesome Gaming

So I just installed Windows 7 Home Premium. Very nice so far, but can't seem to play Warcraft III, without any lag. Its very choppy, very slow, and on and off playing. My Internet speed isn't too bad = 3Mb/768upload. I used to play on Windows XP/ 1mb/370upload speed and it was fine. But its just gotten worse since I've installed Windows 7.

Can anyone give me some advice on how I can fix this problem?

Thanks.

Hi. Sure. Install the latest driver from NVIDIA's website for your card.

It could be your antivirus, especially if it's AVG. Uninstall to test. Disabling will have no effect.

I used to have MCafee, but unistalled, and reformated whole PC cause of it.

So I don't have any supplementary Anti virus's on my computer

Type system information in the start menu search box then hit enter. Ctrl+S on the screen that opens. Rar or zip the saved file and attach to a post using the paperclip. Maybe I can see something that is causing poor performance.

Which firewall are you running?

Type services.msc into the start menu search box and hit enter. Disable

NVIDIA Stereoscopic 3D Driver Service

Go to the start menu, all programs, startup folder and delete both Creative shortcuts.

Install the latest video card driver from NVIDIA's site because you're currently running 9/28/09. There is a new one just now, today.

Reboot and then play a game to see how it is.

Its a tad better, but its very pausing while in game, I still lag here and there.. is it my firewall? or security settings? cause this didnt happen with XP with 1MBps, and there is delay between movement.

-Nevermind, its acting about the same like before. Its not gfx problem though cause its fine during singleplayer. Just multiplayer..
