I just upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate from Vista. I have a decent computer, but after the upgrade everything has been running like its in slow motion. Every window that pops up pops up slow and when i exit out, it exits out slow. But the big problem i am having is that my games are running in slow motion even if i put all the settings as far down as they can go. I have updated my drivers for my motherboard, and video card and it hasn't improved one bit. I also have cleared the registry using regcure and it still hasn't improved. All the same games that i played on Vista ran perfectly until i upgraded, and i clean installed the OS's twice now and i still have the same problem. Does anyone know how to fix this, or am i just going to have to stick with vista to run everything better?

Here is my computer:

ASUS P6T Deluxe V2 motherboard

GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 video card

CORSAIR XMS3 6GB (3 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3

Intel Core i7-920 processor

CORSAIR CMPSU-1000HX 1000W PSU

Make sure to format the drive and do a clean install. Load the latest mother board drivers after installing Windows. Check you HDD for errors maybe the upgrade froze and you restarted it and damaged a hard drive. Dont know, I wasnt there, Its likely a driver problem or hard drive problem.

I did format the hard drive when i did the clean install. And everything runs fine on Vista, before i tried to upgrade the second time because i was making sure that it wasn't the hard drive that went bad. And as far as i know i downloaded all the drivers that are out for the ASUS board. I just don't know if there is a compatibility issue with windows 7 and my hardware that may be getting in the way.
