The last thing I would suggest is finding the program executable and setting it for xp compatibility mode.

HOLY SH******TT U ARE A GENIUS. I TURNED OFF AVAST! anti-virus program and then ran starcraft and it ran perfectly fine!!!!!! (except for those strange colors, but i can deal with that) THANK YOU so much!!!! what I dont understand is what in avast! is making all this lagging occur? It must have been some new update or something because I've had avast! for quick some time, and never had a problem before I did this reformat of my HD. any suggestions if I can tell avast! to somehow by-pass starcraft? and if not what other anti-virus program should i switch to?


once again thank you so much i appreciate it!!!!!!!!

With windows 7 windows security essentials and a back up scanner is really all you need. You can dump avast. ...that's just my personal opinion mind you.
If you are a gamer reducing extra processes should be at the top of your list whenever you run into a performance problem though.

That's what I'm using personally. I set a task for malwarebytes to quick scan once a night and I didn't even have to get the pay version.

64 bit windows 7 home premium
 
 

I just uninstalled my SC on my Visa and installed it on my new computer windows 7 and for some reason when I go into the game I cant see latency bars next to the games, Its frustrating because I can't tell which games have red bars next to them and which ones are green (the games I can join)...I have called battle net and it doesn't seem to be them, just wondering if anyone has any ideas...I know its my computer ( I guess windows 7) because I have tried installing it back onto a visa, and xp computer and it works there, and also I tried installing my husbands copy and key and it doesn't work on my computer....also I have installed the latest patch on different computers and it works again on xp or vista....any ideas???
