I've been using these forums for some time to keep up with any tips and tricks during the beta. Which in general I had very little problems with aside from not being able to play COD4 with Punkbuster. Anyways.... I did a fresh install to try out the RC and now suffering from the following and wondering if anyone has similar or knows how to improve/fix this:
1) Right clicking on the desktop takes about 5 seconds to display the menu
2) Menu items like "New>" also take over 5 seconds then to display it's menu tree
3) Jerky performance when running a range of games and low framerates when during beta all ran really well. Using latest gfx driver
version for Nvdia 185.81 Notebook
4) Running a game in windowed mode gives terrible performance compared to fullscreen, when in beta used to run as well if not better. I've only tested this with World of Warcraft though.
5) When closing down programes I often get a message telling me the programe I was using didn't close properly (although it seems it did) but seems to be happening for a large number of programes such as Outlook, Games, PDF viewers etc. Apps that in the beta had no issues and I'd only see that message if something did actually crash.
6) Firefox seems to stall whenever trying to download something. App goes to not responding but if left for about minute it comes to live and you can see the download had started.
I've had a number of lockups when playing games and apps like firefox crashing. To me it seems less stable than the beta and takes longer to load up apps, games etc. Or there is some sort of delay before it suddenly kicks in and wakes back up. Anyone got any ideas? I had been debating the idea of doing another fresh install of it but I'd rather not :P
