    My daughter is having problems with the sound on her PC. Each time she plays a video or music the sound either stutterrs or pauses. We have tried Windows Help and updated her Windows Media Player yet the problems are still happening. She has a Windows XP Home Media Centre. Any suggestions would be greatly apppreciated.

    Does it only happen in Windows Media Player and no other media program? Or watching a video online (i.e. YouTube)?

    No. It happens with Youtube and other video websites.

    We tried this but when we tried to install we got the following message:

    A cabinet file necessary for installation cannot be trusted. Please verify the Cryptographic Services are enabled and the cabinet file certificate is valid.

    Her system info is:

    MT1700 XP Media Centre Edition
    Intel Pentium D820
    1GB DDR2 (400mhz)
    160GB HDD (SATA2, 7200RPM)
    16X DVD+-R\RW DL
    TV tuner\WLAN(802.11B\G)
