Windows 7: Windows 7 Aero Lag (please help) [THIS IS URGENT]

Being that you say you have 2 HDDs I am assuming your PC is a desktop and not a laptop. If this is the case, then you can upgrade the graphics card in your machine. Radeon HD 4830 would probably do the job nicely. Integrated GPUs suck. Windows 7 has more Aero features than Vista did which may be causing this "lag" or "stutter". Also how is such minuscule sounding lag so urgent?

No, I have a laptop with a recovery partition. It also disturbs a lot. If you have Windows 7, then you can't realize it. I told you, this forum explains the problem better. It irritates me, and I really think its stupid to turn to Vista for something that small.

I have a new PC with plenty of power for general Windows7 purposes (specs as indicated at lower left), and sometimes I do notice a very slight hitch in the animation when I close a window. I don't get it when minimizing or maximizing windows, only when closing or opening one. But it's not exactly an urgent problem.. just a quirk.

Sorry to be so negative but I think you are misinterpreting an Aero interface feature (non-linear temporal animation of a window close) as a bug.
I was in a computer shop and I tested Windows 7 on a notebook with Dualcore CPU, 4 GB RAM and a ATI Card with its own non-shared VRAM, so the notebook was not slow. The result: The opening/close lag is there. And it's exactly the same as on my desktop PC at home, the opening stutter was always there, the close lag was nearly always there. Rarely, the close lag seems to be skipped, because the close animation was "too" fast.

Intel, ATI, nvidia, it doesn't matter. The opening/close lag is there! And until I see a Windows 7 without opening/close stutter, I actually think, that there is not one single Windows 7 sytem around the world without this lag. I believe, that a lot of users just don't recognize the lag.

I think, everybody will see the Aero lag with the slow motion trick. I see no Aero lag in slow motion besides the open/close lag. I see consequentially no Aero lag in real time, but the open/close lag. And I think that when you see the Aero lag in slow motion, the lag is normally there in real time. Once again: Vista has no open/close Aero lag. Not in real time, not in slow motion, not while opening windows, not while closing windows. -Posted by MicOff on Monday, November 16, 2009 6:41 PM

So this proves its not me/my eyes. Have a look at this forum (which I took this post from):Aero Lag when opening and closing windows in Windows 7.
See? Its Windows 7! And its foolish to turn to Vista for some reasons like this... Even though some people switched to Vista on seeing this.

Have you tried clean reinstalling? I read that Technet thread and it seemed to work for some.

If you can't reinstall, then Repair Install is the next best thing.

Obviously MS is working on it now as it is the longest and most demanding thread I've ever read at Technet.

The mod retitled it to catch more Google hits so they're trying to build their data base on the bug.

The simplest workaround, if there is indeed a problem , is to turn off window animation when minimizing and maximizing:

Control Panel > System and Security > System > Check the Windows Experience Index > Adjust visual effects > Visual Effects, then make sure the box for "Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing" is unchecked.

Hey presto

Nope. I used to like Vista animations so much that I bought Windows 7 Ultimate once it was released. I actually thought they will improve the animations. But turning of the animations is not my solution. Anyway, thanks for all your help.
Thanks in advance, John.
