With respect, I think all this talk of driver problems is way off the mark. I am quite certain you do not need to install a virtual machine simply in order to get your graphics drivers installed and in any case, there should be no driver issues as what you were using were pretty much fully up-to-date.

In my experience, many of these intermittent lagging problems are related to the power management profile, with the hard drive automatically configured under 7 to spin down after a short interval.

Check your power settings under Control Panel > Power Options > Change Plan Settings > Change advanced power settings > Hard disk > Turn off hard disk after, and set it to Never. This cures a lot of the intermittent lagging/freezing problems people encounter with 7.
