Windows 7: Graphics Windows Aero Subscore dropped drastically

Microsoft Windows 7 Professional 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1
Graphics Windows Aero Subscore dropped drastically

The title says it all. I've attached the screen capture from Speccy showing my system specs. The graphical subscore used to be 7.4 and has suddenly dropped to 5.0. No hardware or software changes have been made. Restoring to an earlier point also did not make it change.

I'm running Windows 7x64 Pro SP1 with all updates installed.

Are you sure you are running from the NVidia GPU? Maybe you changed to Intel without realizing.

But you should still get a higher score with the HD 4600 graphics on the CPU, should be in the 6`s

Your ssd is hot

Please fill in your specs :)
