Windows 7 hangs when Media player window is moved

Hello. My Windows 7 machine hangs sometimes when I move a Windows Meda Player window around and a movie is played by the player. Sound continues but the system is non-responsive and the only solution is to press a reset button.
Did anybody experience this?

Hello, Welcome to SF,

Most of time the freezing issue is caused due to bad drivers or out-dated drivers. Make sure all your drivers are up to date. Uninstall your Antivirus / Firewall and see whether that makes any difference. Reboot the System in Selective Startup. Also post us the MSINFO32 file.

Quote:
MSINFO32:
Please go to Start and type in "msinfo32.exe" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Save the report as an .nfo file, then zip up the .nfo file and upload/attach the .zip file with your next post.

If you're having difficulties with the format, please open an elevated (Run as administrator) Command Prompt and type "msinfo32 /nfo C:\Users\Public\Desktop\TEST.NFO" (without the quotes) and press Enter. Then navigate to the C:\Users\Public\Desktop directory to retrieve the TEST.NFO file. If you have difficulties with making this work, please post back.

Media Player Window Size
Whenever I play a video file (.wmv, mpg, etc) or audio (.mp3), MP starts out at the last size it "remembered." But when it opens the file and starts playing it, the window gets really small, like a default size and makes it difficult and annoying to re-size it to an appropriate size. Most annoying...

Windows Media Player opens large and then the window gets smaller when I open my AVCHD videos from my camera. It's really annoying. Can I get it to open in one size and have it stay that size so it doesn't resize on me? Thanks
