Windows 7: "lag" in online games with Windows 7

Network throttling is what the MMCSS does while trying to balance the priority of various tasks, like audio processing. By default, it seems to throttle the priority / attention given to network functions in favor of audio processing, which is why, for some people, it causes lag in games.

No effect for me..

What's this Network Throttling? Is it disabling the MMCSS?
Deleted? You just make it a bunch of Fs. (check and see how many)

I have same problem, mine have good low ping on COD4 but randomly lags.
I tried regedit trick and also putting steam.exe on low priority (for MW2) but nothing work so far.
I will try WZC later and I read somewhere someone fix it by changing the router.

MW2 has some chopping problems espically on certain maps. terminal is the one i notice it the most on even offline playing by my self in that map.

I tried the above fix because I play regular on a server with a ping of 40-60. When I upgraded to win 7 32-bit my pings went to 180's plus!!! Well low and behold my pings are back to normal. Thank you.

Another update....
After few days running smoothly, now started lagging again.
I dont know what was wrong, but this is very annoying.
I just replaced my router to new N router but it did not help

I just wanted to sign up to say: Huge thanks to the OP. This was a problem I tried everything to fix, not knowing what it was I flashed upgraded, tweaked, etc for probably 10 hours across a couple weeks, it plagued me so much in L4D2. Your solution completely cleared it up for me. Thanks a ton.

I just sing up to say THANK YOU! Solution worked for me with Counter Strike Source and L4D. I spent a lot of time trying everything: drivers, antyvirus, firewall, defender, reinstal CSS........

I have only one question: Everyone having Win 7 have the same Multimedia Class Scheduler network throttling component running, why only small part of users have this problem?

Again Big Thanks !!!
