Can it be that u use vista? I had the same problem, its a drive issue, but since its only a control panel dont bother.

Select advanced view and u get all the settings u need. ;)

my settings are:

Anisotropic : App-controlled
AA Gamma : On
AA mode : Enhance Application setting
AA Setting : 8x
AA Transparency : Multisampling
Conformant Texture Clamp : Hardware
Error reporting : off
Extension limit : off
force mipmaps : none
Texture filtering - aniso sample optimization : on
Negative LOD bios : Enable
Texture filtereing quality : Quality
Texture filtering - trilinear optimization : On
Threaded optimization : On
Triple buffering : On
Vertical sync : Use 3d app setting

Hope this helps. My philosophy is I try to set as much as I can ingame, hence the aniso and vsync setting. However, after some research I found out that nvidia recommend the enhance app setting for antialiasing, it uses CSAA which seems faster and better. Don't hesitate to post any comments if you have any.
