hello Now that i have the retail copy of PE up[wow that was a learning expierence---thx to help here] and running i started noticing that my games were lagging real bad So i got off the internet and went into some single player games. Well same thing, so i started disabling programs and found out that when i turned PE off that solved my game problem. The only thing i did in PS was disable svchost from calling out. I havnt used any other feature yet. All my games seem to skip and hang up while PE is on. Any suggestions?? It seems like PE resets itself on reboots--am i right?? Also what is wierd when i had the demo version of PE i didnt have this problem or atleast i dont remember having this prob. And yes i have upgraded to the new version,but i had the same problem before i updated also.
