Hi there,

I recently got up to date with the modern world and got a cable modem installed. I started downloading music files immediately, all into Win Media Player. My total library is about 6.6 GB right now. My c: drive Properties tab says I have 28.6 GB of total space and 22.7 is currently used.

What has started happening is that when I use WMP to play music, it sucks up all my computer's resources/memory, and I can't really do anything else on the computer because all other programs run way, way, way too slow. This stops as soon as I pause or stop playback. This has only happened since I started increasing my music collection via downloads. What can I do to release my computer from the music playback "freeze"?

Thank you!
