Default Strange, slow Aero animations

Ever have this happen?

I booted up and my system seemed to take a few seconds longer before the Windows 7 login screen appeared and it seemed slow. I logged in and when the screen fades and the desktop appears, it was like it was in slow motion. The PC was running fast and all, but the animations were slow; Fades, minimize, maximize, movement of windows, etc.

I checked the clock/fan speeds of the card and they were normal. It was the weirdest thing and I'd never seen that before. I hadn't changed drivers or installed anything. I am running virus software.

So I rebooted and it was back to normal. Played SWTOR all night, no issues. After I played, I rebooted again to see if it was OK and everything was fine.

I googled it and it seems like it's happened to others before, something about the driver not loading correctly or something. There was nothing in the event log.
