Selection Rectangle Mouse Lag... Darn

    So hmmm... I am experiencing a weird lag in my translucent selection
    rectangle when I go to click and drag my mouse on my desktop. I've done a
    bit of research and tried the 'untick - retick' solution but it doesn't work
    for me. To get a better 'picture' of my pain... my curse... here is the
    image of what it looks like:

    It's some pretty deep lag. And when I turn off translucent rectangle, the
    old school selection rectangle flickers when I click and drag on my desktop.
    Anyone ever heard of this?

    PC Specs:
    Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.4Ghz
    nVidia 7800GT

    Are you using the latest drivers for that Nvidia card? If not, get them
    from www.nvidia.com.

    Hi,

    Yes I've updated my drivers as frequent as they release new ones. I fear
    that I may have updated it too much and my drivers are now cluttered somehow.

    I have always gotten the same thing. I think it's a problem with Vista
    I think it happens on most PCs

    Nothing else is lagging I take it, if you think your drivers ar
    cluttering your system, delete or rollback all your drivers and the
    reinstall, see if this helps. seems like a minor issue but I know ho
    when I want my PC in perfect pristine condition I must have it.
    were you always having this issue, did you recently make any changes t
    your hardware/ install new softwar

    I believe lag could be mitigated by upgrading CPU and GPU to an extreme
    but the point is to have adequately optimized performance, and this i
    not the case for me. Some of my specs

    • Intel Core 2 Duo overclocked near 3 GHz but still healthy, 5
    °C max - actually it might only be at 2.4 GHz right now, anyway I don'
    think CPU is the proble
    • Nvidia GTX 280 which I will note is factory overclocked, 74 °C
    yes it runs hot, has given me memory and shader clock problems in game
    (artifacting, loss of image)...in the end it's completely adjustable s
    I can tune it down if need be, but the point is it's a consumer-grad
    GPU that can handle most games and graphics applications and I don'
    think it should be having this sort of driver-OS-interrelated proble
    since it performs well for everything else, at extremely hig
    temperatures, mind you
    • 2x 1 TB HDD, 49 and 51 °C, respectively (and I don't see wha
    storage has to do with this
    • 8 GB RAM, 800 MHz, pretty hot...not sure, but works well, n
    leaks, in fact this was a problem with the first set of RAM I put i
    this mobo. I had to buy new RAM, but this issue is definitely solve
    now. I have not had a memory-leak induced bluescreen since. This RA
    performs well at hot temperatures, albeit a somewhat slow clock
    • Vista Ultimate x64 SP2 - note that this has happened sinc
    pre-SP

    No crashing whatsoever after having used Vista for 2-3 years
    I believe I have installed Vista only once, maybe twice
    I have cloned and replaced a HDD with Vista on it once

    In short, I know what I'm doing as far as Windows goes, I was jus
    concerned as to what everyone else has heard about this issue, and i
    anyone else has experienced it. I believe part of this problem could b
    that the desktop itself is not GPU-accelerated in any way other tha
    possibly for DreamScene content, but I would hope that a GPU would no
    be necessary for such a simple transparency effect. I do take int
    consideration, though, that I have 44" of screen real-estate here, and
    can very clearly identify that the lag is cumulative, i.e., the bigge
    *the rectangle, the more lag*. Imagine you had -several- feet of scree
    real-estate. This could then be quite a problem for the end-user. On
    you'd think wouldn't still exist
