Start menu/splash animations bogging down system after driver update.

    A few days ago I upgraded my ATI drivers for Doom 3 to make sure
    everything was up to date. After doing this anything with a fade
    in/out menu system, such as the start button animates VERY slow fading
    in or out. I've noticed anything that starts with a splash screen or
    uses certain programming (like my weather channel desktop program)
    functions VERY slowly and TOTALLY bogs down the system resources. My
    first move was to simply do a virus/spyware scan but that came up with
    nothing. And besides, I notice no slowdown in performance EXCEPT when
    some sort of transparency transition is taking place. This started
    immediately after upgrading the ati drivers. Anyone know what could be
    causing this?

    Try re-installing directx9.0b or c.
