I recently saw portal 2, having not played the first I thought why not.

But while playing it, it is so glitchy. I have more than enough computer to play this game.

Quad Core (2.4 each)
4 Gigs of Ram
GTX 460

No matter if I turn the settings down or not, it is glitchy, hangs and the sound stutters.
I found some people who had similar problems, but no solution. Someone mentioned something about a nvidia firewall...and I dont think they knew what they were talking about. And thats about as far as I got.

Has anyone seen anyone else with these probs?

Actually they may have. This is what they were talking about: Nvidia's Active Armor I know it came bundled with I bought my GTX280 and I did have some issues with games and such. After doing some research I uninstalled anything Nvidia except for the graphics drivers. It is a possibility.

Well, I looked through my installed programs and the only things I see installed that are nvidia are a vision driver, graphics driver, audio driver and physx system software.

Is there anything else that could cause the problem? Could a normal firewall for whatever reason cause a problem like that? I wouldnt think so...

Not really, it just sounds weird, every game people post you say plays like crap. Something else is going on. When's the last time you checked your system for spyware or viruses and if it was recent, what did you use?

I didnt say every game plays badly. Ports play poorly in that mouse look isnt responsive and crisp.

I looked it up and it turns out a ton of other people are having similar problems with the video card I have, the gtx 460.
I have never had a game play as badly as Portal had.

Since that post however, I found some threads where people had some success, once I "disable desktop composition" the glitchy stutter went away almost completely.
