I think I'd try uninstalling Audacity (might have experienced a corrupt installation process.) Revo Uninstaller does a better job of removing left-over files than the built in 7 uninstall process. Use Revo in advanced mode.

I used it a couple of times. I just remembered that I installed (by usb) my Numark turntable so I could convert my vinyl to mp3s. After Audacity stopped working, I used Roxio's LP and cassette audio converter. Haven't had a problem with that at all.

Okay, I'll download Revo and give it a shot.

Okay, I've done a thorough uninstallation of Audacity using Revo. Should I download and install Audacity again?

Make a system restore point. If it works great, if does not work dump it with the system restore.

Nope, still freezes. Did the system restore so I'm back to before I installed it. I don't have much time left, but what would be the next option?

I have to get going now. I will check back later. OH, and thanks to both of you for introducing me to Revo. I'll start using that from now on.

Well, the older version of Audacity works fine. But my computer still freezes when I load that Wikipedia video.
