Has Defrag been run on the disk? Try that first and see if the stutter goes away or gets "better".
Just did that, stuttering doesn't seem to be improved. Just installed CCCP and did what you said. Will update later.

If it magically stops stuttering in vlc we can assume a codec issue, since vlc uses it's own internal codecs.

Well whenever I watch videos in VLC it never stutters, but if I listen to music in VLC it sometimes stutters.

edit: nvm still stutters with videos on vlc

That is plain odd....

MP3 support is built into windows now. I can't figure what codec could have gotten screwy that would cause this.

There is the possible issue of your hard drive failing but it really doesn't sound like that either since you'd have other problems.
If you don't mind doing something that might be a little difficult. I would like to check your system for bad device drivers.

Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable
(Please read all instructions for driver verifier before using as it's possible it will make the machine behave badly and you need to know how to undo it.)

note: DV is a bit of a pain sometimes I'll understand if you don't want too. I just used to reading minidumps and dv is good at producing them.

Could be a DPC latency issue. Download this program (DPC Latency Checker) and see if it shows green bars.

Maguscreed, I will try that later.
Schroff87, I downloaded that and its sometimes green sometimes red and sometimes turns red when I watch a YouTube video but its not all the time. Also the suttering has seemed to be reduced a bit now.

Red indicates a latency issue, please google for detailed instructions on how to reduce it.

Hey Maguscreed, I did that verifier thing and my computer could not start up normally, right after the windows logo there would be a bsod then it would restart. So I had to go into safe mode to disable verifier.

@Schroff87 I googled it but couldnt really find anything, most were just lag for games, which I'm not experiencing now

It creates pops, cracks in sound and frame skips in videos in addition the video game issue which was caused by nvidia's drivers on a specific chipset as you may have noticed in your search and is easily rectified by altering a setting in the bios. Hope it is fixed with this driver checking thing.
