5 minute to open WMP 12..way too much

intel core i5 750

5 minutes to open windows media player 12......... I think there is something wrong !

All the update are done.

I'm working a lot with video AVCHD and the ADobe suite producer. I use wmp to preview some video before importing in adobe premiere.

Now I have to wait 5 minutes to preview my video !!....dammit !

Can I downgrade the media player to 11 ??...... Or can I reinstall wmp 12 to the begining ?

I need a solution.

Thanks for your time.

Maybe one of the updates did that. The only way is is to go and remove the updates. All so I don't think you can downgrade it. You could try and see if it dose but not a 100% sure if you can.

Clock is off by less than a minute.
I noticed that my clock is a bit slow. I think it started happening within the last week or so. Prior to that there were no problems. It is set to synchronize automatically but I manually synchronized and sure enough it is now correct. So is it not synchronizing on it's own? Any ideas?

Pictures now take a minute to open - used to be OK
I've never had trouble opening pictures in my Windows 7 system before. Pictures always opened instantly. Something recently changed, and now when I double-click a picture to open it, it takes ages to open in Windows Live. (Over a minute to open a picture). Because it worked OK before, I have to...
