When I am playing the game World of Warcraft and I Alt-Tab to a different application without exiting the game, my game screen shows corruption.  How do I fix this?


This behavior has been observed on certain AMD dual core based systems.  To resolve this issue, please download the AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor Driver and the AMD Dual-Core Optimizer from AMD's website at:

Next, you will need to download a patch from Microsoft to address power management issues with multi-processor systems.  Please visit the following URL for more information on how to obtain this software:
