Windows 7: WMP12 Hangs for a few seconds

26 Oct 2010   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
WMP12 Hangs for a few seconds

Ok...this is how it happens... WMP12 not open. I double click to open/play an mp3. WMP12 opens and begins playing the mp3 in "now playing" mode. Then a second later it switches to library mode, hangs for 4-8 seconds (blue ring spinning), then switches back to "now playing" mode. It's VERY annoying. Has anyone experienced this and/or know of a fix? Thanks. Win7 64-bit 8gb ram Core i7 860

Sure I have, but I am used to and like using wmp. I haven't had this problem with any other player. I was hoping someone else has experienced this issue and may shed some light on solving it.

RC hangs ~every 4 seconds for about 2-3 seconds
Pretty much the title here. Except sometimes it will work just fine if I'm not doing too much. The startup also hangs after the splash logo to the login screen for about 10 seconds. In build 7000, there was no lag at all. Any ideas? Driver suggestions? Not sure.... Thanks!
