    Hmmm this is a little tough to troubleshoot. Which client are you using? Do you use any approved 3rd party applications like UOAssist? If so I find running in admin mode always helps out. Are you using the 32 or 64 bit Win 7 install? Have you updated your drivers after the upgrade? (don't assume that Windows update will make the right decision). I would go directly to your video card manufactures site and get their Win 7 drivers and the same for your sound card.

    Those are just a few suggestions. There are a number of Win 7 threads in this forum that may have other tips and tricks to try.

    Good luck and keep us posted!

    Your processor probably can't handle w7...revert to xp if you want to reduce lag.
