Windows 7: music player glitches bad when on internet

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

Did we ever run "chkdsk /r" in a command prompt like I suggested a couple days ago?

Three main things going on when browsing, in no uncertain order.

Graphics loading/unloading including flash video ads....etc.
Network adapter or wireless downloading data.
Real-time virus malware checking.

Try this... go online and download a decent sized file, like drivers for your graphics card... something at least 20MB. Does the music glitch while downloading?

Also, try this...
Can you disable/quit your virus checker, go to a few web sites you know are good (to be safe) and see how the music plays.

Several have fixed a similar problem by stopping Windows Security Essentials.

Your milage may vary!

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit

tell me more about run "chkdsk /r" in a command prompt . You're right, I missed that one. What is it, what does that do? I don't want to do anything that I don't know how to change back if it fails.
I tried to disable the virus, no change.
As far as while downloading, well, hard to answer that. I picked Adobe as it wasn't already on there. The install had a running add on the top. Seemed to me that the music worsened when the add rotated and didn't do that bad during the actual download. Darn thing just acts like it doesn't want to do 2 things at once. The old POS I had with XP was fine. I don't get it. I know it's capable.

I have a solution now!

You have to forget the integrated network adapter!

I've tried out something a few minutes ago. In our case the problem is caused by the network adapter. Maybe there is something wrong with the IRQ assigments. I tried setting the IRQ priority higher for the soundcard but no results.
I have an integrated nForce networking adapter. I have an IntelPRO/100+ PCI adapter too from my old PIII. And here is what im done. I put the Intel PCI card into a PCI slot after my soundcard - using this for network. Everything is working fine now! No glitches!
