    Vista network connections use both traditional TCP/IPv4 and the
    newer TCP/IPv6. Just as a test case you may want to unbind the
    newer v6 from your network adapter and retest your throughput.

    my first thought is the driver for NIC. Hunt around and make sure you have the latest CORRECT one. Just because Vista installed a
    driver for you doesn't mean its the best one.

    The Hold'Em flashes are due to the poor drivers made by nVidia.

    Honestly just read around and you'll see that most motherboard/video cards
    with issues are chipsets by nVidia.

    As for the slow network connection are you sure that it's Vista?

    Have you tried multiple sites to download from?

    first, what isp is giving you 8MB down?!?!?!?
    second, nvidia is a joke. they release WHQL drivers for the 8800 cards that
    dont even work with the sleep function in vista. put vista to sleep, and the
    monitor/video card never come back. nvidia's official response: "as a work
    around, reboot"

    how theyre being allowed to say WHQL is beyond me, they should be sued. and
    yes, their shitty driver wont even work with a small game like hold 'em.

    The first day I had my laptop (Vista Ultimate) I downloaded the Hold'em
    game. It ran with no problems.

    The day before yesterday I noticed I had an optional download, "Texas
    Hold'em". I couldn't tell if this was an update, replacement, or what...
    seeing as though I already had the game. I downloaded it and it said it was
    successfully installed.

    Now, when I play the game, I get the flickering that you describe. It was
    not there before.

    I have installed premium - without a hassle (phew!)

    the only problems I have found are POOR (broadband) download speeds

    when using XP Pro my download speed was near to 8 megs but now with Premium

    my download is less than 1meg!!!!! - my zoom router is working fine - my
    MOBO is an Ausus A8n -SLI - Premium

    any ideas on this one would be greatfukky received - MICROSOFT - by their
    own admission

    (names available of who not to talk to available upon request) "have no
    idea" in fact one tech support guy told me to

    re install XP PRO!!!!.

    My second problem is with hold em - all the text (bets etc) continually
    flash ... I am using Nvidia 8800 GTX

    again your help would be appreciated

    It was an update that added additional language support.
