    So here's my problem. I have a rather new computer.
    and the games really runs slow. I have the newest version of the game and drivers for my graphic card. Even with the lowest graphics the game runs slow.
    BUT when I tab out of the game and then tab in again it runs really smooth for about 5 seconds and after that it runs really slow again.

    anyone having a solution?

    sounds like a threading issue ive had on other titles when dual core was new.

    ive got a similar setup and no slowdowns.

    Start the game, open the task manager, right click on the heroes process (hommv or something like that) then "set affinity" and uncheck cpu 1 but leave cpu 0 checked.

    This will stop the game from processing threads on both cores, so only half of ur cpu's grunt will be available. but better than 5 fps!!

    Hope that works for ya.

    you can also try to fiddling with the "threaded optimisation" option in the nvidia control panel 3d settings.
