Just trying to get it to run a little better and not having Steam in the background might help a tad. I tried running the .exe directly but that of course launches Steam in the process.

Try opening Steam and going to the library tab. R-click on Torchlight on the left and choose the option to create a desktop shortcut. I fairly sure shortcuts like that don't start Steam.
Sometimes I think I have gone mad, other times I just wish I had.

I did that but I can't even drag the shortcut into my taskbar (Windows 7) and I realized it was a url, not an .exe file so I'm pretty sure that still runs through Steam

If 20 dollars isn't too much for you the Runic/Perfect World versions don't have steam. I realize it's not optimal but it's an end.

Actually it won't help at all to run it without Steam unless you have an old pentium III processor and 128mb of ram.

But still, give Gamebooster a try see if it smoothens things up.

make a shortcut like this:
D:\games\Steam\Steam.exe -applaunch 200710

Use Skidrow exe on your officially bought game to be able to play it without steam

Thanks for the suggestions, I'll look into them. It's not a big deal but figured I'd still ask.
