All I can recommend is compatibility for Vista (without service packs). Use Zap Messenger and install WLM using MSI files scattered all over the internet.
Seems to have fixed it... that or I got used to the lag.

Hey, it worked! I used Zapmessenger, then just redid the WLM download from the live website, cancelled the download and told it to try again so that it gave me the wlsetup-all file instead of the wlsetup-custom file... the lag is gone! Didn't have to do compatibility mode or anything like that.

Well, looks like LuzTeTT has solved another one. If anybody needs help doing this procedure, feel free to ask.

I also solved the lag by installing an updated network on-board LAN driver for windows 7. FYI, I am using Biostar AM2+ mobo TA790GX. the driver (realtek) can be found here BIOSTAR :: TA790GX 128M :: Driver.

Ok the lag came back in.haiz.

Thank you for the helpful and important post .

I have had no problems aside from this one issue with Win7, and it is still a problem for me now. I have tried some of the suggestions others have posted in this thread to no avail, unfortunately. Anybody else have any other ideas?

I had this exact same problem. I found it to be related to a buffer overflow when WLM tries to read a registry entry. Documented what I did to fix the problem here. Seems to have fixed it, but it's certainly a strange behavior that shouldn't be happening.

I solved a similar problem I had (with WLM and Chrome too) by disabling automatic settings detection on LAN connection settings in IE:

So for a few months I was pulling my hair out with the lag, and decided that when I rebuild my system, I would check it after each program install to see when the lag would show its ugly face. I have kids in the house, and we play games with their friends across town and some of those games only play on a LAN connection. We installed Wippien to simulate a LAN and when the network adapter was installed the lag came back both in messenger and in Google Chrome. When the adapter is disabled the lag is gone. I haven't looked in to the behind the scenes problems as to why there is a conflict, but at this time I narrowed it down to the network adapter from my Wippien install.

Might help some...might not be applicable to others.
