This is on win 7 x64. I don't get it. Wait yes I do, it's a newer OS.. Anyway, I'm getting lag in virtually every video playback I watch. Just has these little spikes occasionally that have finally bugged me to annoyance. Never had anything like it in xp 32. Sometimes it happens way to much, sometimes rarely. But it's always aggravating. It causes things to freak out on occasion as well. Has almost caused a freeze even. One instance it caused a looping sound and skipping replay issue. Tried adjusting playback sound qualities and what not.. Worked in settings and did standard tests.. Of course nothing comes up. I haven't managed to pin it down yet. Anyone figured it out yet? As for Genuine. It will crash me if I'm playing L4D2 and the dumb ass genuine decides to validate it's self while I'm in a game. Just makes the game start looping sound and freezes it. If I don't alt tab out, it's done for. Pretty annoying and I have a feeling once I get to playing other games online, that may very well cause the same issue. Anyway to disable it or the notification? Maybe set it up for some kind of manual verification instead of automatic? Thanks all.
