>I didn't have any problems with WaW for about a month.

^That right there should absolve the game from blame. I'd be asking myself what changed with the system between then and now. Also might consider doing a System Restore back to that period if possible. Did you happen to upgrade your video drivers after ^that point? Seems I've read of a lot of people with 8 series cards having various problems unless using an older driver version...say very early 180 or previous.

Well, I was thinking about what might be the cause last night and I had an idea. I did reimage my machine (backup image was made) and when I first loaded CoD WaW it ran perfectly.

After reinstalling some software I tested it again, it worked fine. Once I performed some of the finishing cleanup and ran Perfect Disk 2008 using the SMART Placement for a defrag method it happened again. So I changed the defrag method to normal instead of SMART Placement and performance is right back to normal.

So... I was horribly wrong in blaming Treyarch for this. It was an underlying issue that I never considered after ruling out drivers and windows updates.

Perfect Disk is a solid app, but for some reason SMART Placement makes a mess out of the games files. What still has me stumped is that uninstalling some drivers would resolve the issue, before I discovered the Perfect Disk connection last night.

I'll keep playing and report back if it happens again since I've changed the defrag method of the app.

Glad you found the culprit. Figured it had to be something system-level (drivers, etc) since COD4 was impacted also.

Some also have problems with the sound not working properly unless the audio hardware acceleration is my case from "Full" to "Basic". As this setting won't "stick" between reboots (for moi' at least), I exported the acceleration registry settings before/after and made a batch file to:
Reduce to Basic
Launch the game
Reset to Full

More detail if requested.
Nice info, thank for sharing
