win 7 ultimate X64

I think I got it. I uninstalled update (KB2541014). I just listened to an hour of music from my c drive and about an hour of music from my 3tb external 3.0 with no problem. I did notice that wmp uses a lot of % of processor, about 30%. so im using aimp3, which uses about 5-10%. ill post later to see if anything else changes.
