Go to search type cmd

Right click on the cmd run as adminitrtor

Then type sfc /scannow in the cmd prompt

All of this from an administrators account.

Finished with the sfc and it says that windows did not find any integrity violations. What next? Still got this lag =( In-game it's unplayable. Like it's fine walking around even with big groups of people, it's only when I go to do stuff like mount up or fight something or make an action outside of wow like on the desktop.

When trying to do a system restore to an earlier point in time I get an error telling me that it can't perform a system restore and gives me error code 0x80071a91

Just Norton from what I can see. I've ended up just reformatting the machine because I couldn't figure it out even after reading all over these forums. It seems that reformatting resolved the issue though and he is on his way to go geta new Video card as soon as the store opens =P
