Video playback freezes
I have a problem with windows 7, when I watch a video on my pc or laptop(both with windows 7) the video will freeze so now and then(sometimes more often than other times).
When the video freezes I can still move my mouse, close the full screen, browse arround in windows.. And if I have task manager open I don't see any extra CPU or memory usage..
If I browse arround in windows(or Utorrent or any other program) it works fine for 5-10 seconds, but after that it also freezes.. But I can still use programs I haven't used yet..
I can't open new programs because than explorer.exe freezes.. So I have a bit of a Midas problem, everything I touch during a "video freeze" gets frozen..
Everything stays frozen for about 30-60 seconds and when the video unfreezes, everything unfreezes..
I don't know what it is or how it is happening. It's on my laptop and on my 2 weeks old desktop.. So it can't really be a hardware issue.. Only thing they have in common is windows 7..
I hope anyone else has had this problem and knows a solution.. Or if anyone has any ideas as to where I should look it would be much appreciated.
