Hey guys, as you know I was having problems with games on windows 8.1 pro , thats why I came back to windows 7. I installed Windows 7 x64 Ultimate with SP1 earlier this morning, installed latest graphics driver and ran windows assessment test from My Computer->Properties and it gave 7.9 on everything but on CPU and RAM it gave 7.8 .
Now, the problem is whenever I am opening a window, for example, notepad, when I am opening it , it is opening slowly as it is slightly visible and then it opens itself up, similarly when I am closing a window, it is closing up getting slightly invisible and then closing up properly. I mean no window is opening and closing directly. I am able to get a slightly visible peek of the window before it opens and closes. It is not happening instantly.
My rig is : Core i7 4771 , 16 GB DDR 3 RAM , GPU GTX 760.

What could be the problem ?

Not sure what your problem looks like exactly, but I have the similar to what you are describing. I think it is just Aero effects that give windows a slight fade in and out.

If you want windows to open/close instantly, do this:

1. Right click Computer
2. Click Properties
3. Click 'Advanced System Settings' in the left menu
4. Click the Advanced tab
5. Under the Performance section click 'Settings'
6. Untick 'Animate windows when minimizing and maximizing'

This will make minimizing, maximizing, opening, and closing windows more snappy

Thanks a ton, that fixed it.

One more thing, I am on Google Chrome, and when I am adding more tabs, it is adding the tabs slowly , like its stretching it.
How to fix that ?

How many gigs of RAM do you have? Chrome can be a bit of a memory hog

I also have 16GB of RAM and sometimes encounter a problem where Chrome crashes cause it runs out of memory. It may just be a RAM related issue.

I did a quick google search and some people are saying it's a bug etc.

Does it only happen when you have heaps of tabs open? and get slower with each new tab you open?

Yes, when I am trying to add a new tab, it is slowly adding the new tab , almost like stretching it.

It may just be an issue with Chrome itself. It's been reported to have memory leaks and bugs. A solution may be to try a different browser such as Firefox and see how that runs.
