Halo 2 and Windows 7 = NO GO?

Question by Moses: Halo 2 and Windows 7 = NO GO?
I recently Upgraded Windows Vista Home-Premium (64-bit) to Windows 7 Home-Premium (64 bit) and EVERY previous game that I had on Vista works JUST as well and some even better than they ever did on Vista...... EXCEPT for Halo 2! Halo 2 Works GREAT, until you go into ANY multiplayer game, then it gets VERY slow and freezes! This ONLY seems to happen when yuo access the web through Halo 2...... the video just seems to freeze up! EVERY single driver possible has been updated, especially the nVidia one. If anyone know this fix, it would be REALLY helpful! Here's My Specs:

AMD Athlon X2 6000+ (3.31 GHz) Processor
nVidia GeForce 9800 GT 1 GB RAM (16% Factory Overclock) by Gigabyte
600 watt CoolMax power supply
Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
4 GB High Performance RAM

ASUS M2R32-MVP CrossFire or SLi Ready Motherboard High Speed Graphics Platform

COD is a completely different game, and yes I have Modern Warfare 2 on the computer as well. But Halo 2 is ALSO a game I like to play! NO WHERE in this question did I say that I was looking for a new game to play... And according to Microsoft, Halo 2 for Vista, is EXACTLY the same on Windows 7...... Windows 7 IS practically Windows Vista. Win 7 isn't as far away from Vista as XP for example. There's something else!
