win7 rtm

I have the same problem...

ingame : 70-100ms
XP ingame: 20ms

today I installed the RTM, before I had the RC, but nothing changed

msi k8n neo4
msi 7600gs
1gb ram
I use the integrated nforce lan card, I have an old realtek 8139 too, but no difference, bad pings on both.

Windows 7

im not sure I see some people have problems with gaming on both the rtm and rc and some people have no problems at all :/ not sure what it could be? maybe a driver problem maybe not a good one has been released yet? maybe just a unknown program or something running without us knowing, I really don't know but its really stressing..knowing that on xp and vista I get much lower pings but for some unknown reason ping is high in 7 pretty much one of the only flaws I have noticed in 7 would be this..runs much better than vista much faster...better looks (to me atleast) and just a better interface..less ram usage etc..I just wish I knew how to solve this problem I was planing on buying 7 home premium when it came out if the preformance was good which it is but this ping problem has changed my mind on buying it intill their is a solution.

Goto start menu>right click Computer>Manage>Services and Applications>Services then search for Multimedia Class Scheduler.
Switch startup type to Disabled. (Startup type: "Manual" does not work)

Part 2.
Goto start menu type Regedit in search push enter then locate

Right click Modify and remove MMCSS from the list then click ok.


Thanks to Waymon in the Counter-Strike source lag/choke thread.
