    Hey guys, I've been having some issues with latency issues recently. It all started after upgrading from Vista to Windows 7.

    I have tried upgrading all my drivers, and even downgrading my Network driver thinking it might fix the problem, but to no avail.

    I am a big online gamer, so you can understand the frustration. My ping sits around 19-20 but will spike up to anywhere between 50-80 for 5 seconds, then back down. This happens every 15-20 seconds or so.

    I've left DPC Latency Checker running while I disable both my audio drivers, with no change, as well as my Network driver, and the issue still persists.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated ! I don't know what more I can do at this point.

    This issue is definitely on my end, because my desktop computer has no latency issues, so I don't believe it is my ISP, and the issues didn't start till I upgrading my OS.

    Hello Volumes,

    Welcome to Windows 7 Forums!

    Try resetting the TCP/IP stack...this has been shown to improve latency and overall speed on certain computers. From Command Prompt:
    netsh winsock reset
    You may need administrator privileges to complete this action.
