A way to see if it''s your fault or windows one, is to use two OS as I do, and use a crossplatform library to write only the code once and compile it on both OS.

Here''s my setup:
BeOS5 PE (http://free.be.com) / BeIDE (devtools.zip same URL)
Windows 98 SE / Visual C++ 6.0
SDL library (http://www.libsdl.org)

I code in C/C++ and OpenGL1.1

Hope it helps...

ok enough... strange thing is that it happens even with tut lets say 6 ... I was thinking ( answer from my post before )that its a problem of lack of glDisableTextures...

but really I don''t know how to explain ... maybe hardware conflict ?
I thought that somebody had this before, and ... you know !
I''m waiting for some more answers ...

I had a similar problem and the solution was to completely disable DualHead - MultiDisplay for my Matrox dualhead card whenever I wanted to run someones ogl program. The results we crazy, before disabling I''d get about 2fps, after I would have 60 - 80 or whatever... it was playable. So, If you are running two monitors try and disable your secondary completely...
