Specs: xp pro version 5.1.2, core 2 duo/ 1.99gb
Hello folks, I have a peculiar trouble in playing media files, wherein the sounds are dragged regardless of the music player. I use WMP11 and WinDvd 9to play my media files.
The songs I play are kind of , in a sense, freeze and unfreeze and have found no evidence of a virus, spyware or malware whatsoever.Neither have found out any reason why this happens.
Any help will be appreciated and thanks a lot for making a try.

There has been a known issue with windows XP for a long time concerning this...or similar issues. I don't think there was ever an actual fix found.
What you might try
update all audio adapter drivers.
...make sure all video/audio codecs are updated. Before updating you need to remove any existing codec files in which some cases the media players themselves may have to be removed (uninstalled) then added back.

I like K-Lite codec pack as it seems to use the best codecs files around.

another issue that might cause this is Java. I have had java freeze on videos and gaming issues.

First you must open task manager and stop the jave rE process. (jqs.exe) then go to control panel add/remove and uninstall the JRE file . Once done then reboot and reload the jave file by visiting

post back and let us know if it works for you!

Change Is Good

I never thought codecs to be causing the problem, since I have always downloaded the latest codecs time and again. It's not mere coincidence, that I too doubted the Java app to be causing this, and thank you, for validating my doubt.Now I can be sure of what to do next. Thanks a lot for your timely help, it is greatly appreciated.
