    WLM 2009 and Windows 7 Lag...?

    Hi, I am having a problem with WLM 2009 on Windows 7....mainly major lag. WLM works, but the second I type something, maximize a window, minimize a window, open the main Contact List Window....change a display picture.....change a background.....pretty much any time I try to do ANYTHING, it lag-freezes for about 6-7 seconds.

    Has been doing this since I installed Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit about a week ago; I have the
    14.0.8089.726 build of WLM and I am running MSN Plus as well. I should also mention I am running WLM as Administrator and under Vista SP2 compatibility mode to enable the System Tray Icon, as this doesn't work in regular mode......ideas....?

    It's INCREDIBLY irritating...

    There's another person with my same problem...KimiNCS...I assume they'll be posting here shortly as
    we've been following each other around to find a solution and this is the second forum we've both been directed too, starting with the Windows Live Help site, sent to the Microsoft Discussion Group for Windows Live Messenger, and then finally to here...:)

    I hate to do that, but does nobody have any ideas at all? I've already been to Windows Live Help, told to post in the WLM Discussion Group, and then told to post here....is there nobody who has any suggestions?

    Hey, I also experienced such problem since I first installed my Windows 7 RTM 32bit. I reinstalled another original copy of Windows 7 Professional 64bit from MSDN. and the same problem occurred.
    Can anyone help?

    I can't find information on this anywhere! I'm running Windows 7 x64 RC Build 7100 on a gaming desktop: i7 920, 12 GB RAM, Radeon 4870x2. The fact that the latest WLM lags is just embarassing.

    Some notes on the problem:
    -Lag only seems to kick in after a couple hours of use (maybe memory leak?)
    -Uninstalling and reinstalling does nothing
    -Antivirus and firewall fully disabled
    -About 1000 contacts (yes I know that's outrageous, but the devs should've considered this)

    I'm also running an ATI video card, though with an AMD processor and 6GB of RAM.

    I'm tempted to kill myself because of this issue alone.

    Seriously, the epic failure of Windows 7 and WLM is causing people to kill themselves. It needs to be fixed immediately.
