No, these are the games I tested and had NOT any problems anytime.

and to reduce it you do these


  • Open regedit
  • Go to: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Multimedia\SystemProfile
  • There will be an entry for network performance throttling, default value is 10; set it to FFFFFFFF hex (willl look like 0xFFFFFFFF to the right of the entry)
  • Reboot


and the first 1st way you have it is for a sound issue conflict correct?

the desired effect is the same: turn off network throttling. the first way is brute force, however, and results in audio issues. the second way is more elegant, as it leaves the service running to properly manage the sound sub system, but tells it not to throttle the network, which is what is causing all the weird lag and stuttering problems.

so over all its better to do it the 2nd way.

Hey guys thanks for the advice.

First of all, I think if I disable my sound device, there's no point playing cos I'm just playing a very silent game and I doubt it will fix it, as I've tried to completely turn off my sound as well.

About bottle necking, everything is running smooth except for games being delay in game as well as spikes. Bottle necking should only cause FPS problems if I'm correct and not online delays etc. I have now changed back to Windows XP and all my games are running smooth. Very frustrated as I was looking forward to W7, I'm also wondering if it might have an issue if my HardDrive is running at a lower speed?

@sotorious: that is correct.

@unrl: this is not a case of bottlenecking. this is a case of network throttling that the MMCSS is causing, unless you turn it off. you do not disable your sound card permanently, only temporarily to diagnose the issue. turning the volume down or muting the sound will not have the same effect.

Well what I am experiencing is audio no matter what the source will have some type of problem while I am playing dungeon fighter. It is the only game so far that I have any issues with.

Basically even if I mute the music in the game and use winamp or media source or windows media player it will still have random problems playing the audio. I have a feeling the game is so poorly optimized at this point that the access it has to the audio device is what is causing this. I will just have to wait until they fix it.

This Network Throttling fix DID work for me in Team Fortress 2!

I disabled MMCSS as well as deleted that line that was mentioned in your other post.
No effect for me..

What's this Network Throttling? Is it disabling the MMCSS?
