Windows Media Player "skips"

  1. This problem with WMP9 started a couple of months ago...

    When music or a video is playing, it gets stuck for a couple of seconds, and
    the visualizations also hang for a few seconds. It's like the old LP's when
    they would hit a bad spot and suddenly skip on to the next words; WMP9 hangs
    for a couple of seconds, then recovers and continues playing the song,
    video, etc.

    I've tried reinstalling WMP9-- didn't help. Even after reformatting the
    hard drive and updating to version 9, it STILL hangs when playing.

    Anyone ever encountered this problem?

    Use something else to play your media files...

    The problem is your CPU.

    See what other applications are running at the same time. WMP9 is a
    resource hog.

    You have 3 options to solve this problem.

    1. Get a faster CPU

    2. Stop all uneeded processes when using WMP9

    3. Stop using WMP9 and get another player.
