Hello

I am having trouble running minecraft, both in browser and thru download client in windows 7 64bit. Everything else runs very smoothly and quickly even while minecraft is running extremely slow at 0 to 1 fps.
It runs smoothly and very quickly on my windows vista 32bit partition on the same computer. Java version is exactly the same. I know hardware is definitely not the issue as minecraft runs very smoothly on my more congested and slower vista partition, which also runs most games at decent fps with no issues. Some kind of software somewhere on my Win 7 system is causing the problem.

Any ideas on where to look to attempt solving this problem? Diff java versions, activate services, download add-ons? etc

Thanks!

Specs:
Windows 7 64Bit
Intel Duo 2.6ghz
Nvidia 8600M GT

You say the java version is exactly the same, you may want to use the 64bit jre for a 64bit OS.

hmm ok that is a good point. I did not know they offered the 64bit variation for java. I will try that soon and see what happens.
