Windows 7 keeps freezing as I try to watch video!
Exactly what the title reads is happening! I try to watch any type of video and my whole system freezes. The mouse won't move, ctrl-alt-delete won't work and my system light doesn't flash at all! I love the beta, but that one thing is killing me! Especially since I just got all the updated drivers in and got the sound and ethernet cards recognized! Anyhelp would be useful although I know its still a beta!

You may be better waiting for its final release ...is it still using Internet Explorer 7 ? because if it is then that is probably to blame,so many problems with people getting the symptoms you have described,when working with Vista ....

Nah, I hate IE and W7 has the beta 2 of IE 8 which runs okay, but still nothing to write home about. I use Opera for everything. My video problem is widespread. Anytime I try to watch any video on any platform be it thru a browser or media player like jetaudio the whole thing freezes even the mouse!

Except for mouse movement, I've had everything freeze solid twice already. Hey folks, its a Beta, that's what Beta's do. I've had better luck since turning UAC down to nothing but don't know if its related or not.
