Windows 7 causes lag in Call of Duty 5

Discussion in 'Windows 64bit' started by Skybuck Flying, Sep 3, 2011.

  1. Hello,

    Windows 7 causes lag in Call of Duty 5.

    It's probably windows 7's virus scanner which is constantly scanning
    executables and/or packets.

    From a gaming point perspective this sux and is unacceptable.

    Perhaps a solution for windows 8 would be to add an API which game
    developers can call so that virus scanners are temporarely disabled when
    gaming.

    Or perhaps another solution can be found.

    It especially lags when the host is a windows 7 computer :(

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

  2. Ok,

    I just played with somebody who claimed to be using windows 7... and there
    was no lag...

    So maybe it's not windows 7 causing the lag/slow on some systems.

    Maybe it's just hardware like maybe amd x2 processors or maybe gfx cards
    being too slow.

    But could still be something to look into just in case ;)

    Bye,
    Skybuck.

    Report your PC's configuation!

    Do you have the hardware to run the game in its highest settings? :)

    KAV was hogging my CPU at up to 100%
    for some scans so I tried this:- Process Tamer
    It might help?

  5. One source of the slow down also seems to be when host/server uses
    aimbot/cheats or wallhacks.

    Not sure if this also causes lag when guests/clients use it.

    Skybuck.
