5 minute to open WMP 12..way too much

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?

One minute freezes
My Win7x64 home was installed recently by AVAdirect (the computer builder). I haven't seen any BSOD but perhaps a few times a day it freezes for 30 or 60 seconds and then merrily goes on its way as if nothing wrong ever happened. I see lots of warnings in the system health test (attached) but I...

Pictures now take a minute to open - used to be OK
