    I am running Vista 32 with 3gb of memory and 500gb of hard drive space.

    audio files are skipping quite often and video files are choppy at times

    I have a gigabyte Motherboard with a P4 3.20 processor

    the sound card is onboard so what do you suggest?


    Thanks

    Randy

    Please click here to download and install version 2.0.2 of the HijackThis Installer.

    Run it and select Do a system scan and save a logfile.

    The log will be saved in Notepad. Copy and paste the log in your next post.

    Do not fix anything

    The sound card is onboard the motherboard and the audio files are from various sources, ripped cd's, Itunes purchases and some from Limewire over the year.

    I have no idea how to update the sound card, where do i find that info and how do i update it

    Thanks

    Try turning Limewire off....better still remove it.

    Does this PC have a make and model.........if so go to the Manufactures site and see if there is a update for the sound driver

    Peer2 peer programs take up large resources.......and slow your Internet down drastically...not to mention how easy you can get infected

    I think you have Limewire to startup Automatically when the PC starts....I would go into the program and set it to not startup automatically
