Ok, I posted another thread in the Mobile section cause I am having graphic stability issues on my new laptop.

Summary: In-Game FPS goes from 60 to 30 every couple of frames making is unplayable.

Anyways, doing everything I knew how, disabling UAC, Indexing, Power Savings to performance, etc... I narrowed my problem or atleast helped the situation... dwm.exe.

I know Destop Windows Manager is for Aero, well I disabled ALL of Aero's functions cause all they do is eat resources. So I pulled up Task Manager and started trimming programs, this one by FAR helped my situation, the problem is, every couple of minutes, it automatically gets turned back on. Does anyone know how to make it stay off until manually turned on?

Background Specs:
Toshiba P100 Laptop
Intel Core Duo 1.73
2Gb Ram
Nvidia Go GeForce 7600 GS (512mb)
Vista Business

Game: World of Warcrack

Start
Run
services.msc
Find it in the list.
Go to like File or Edit or something
Change status to Disable (as opposed to manual or automatic)
Manually stop the process.
