Hello, I'm experiencing a problem with Windows, where when I use a program such as windows media player, or msn, the computer will lock up the mouse and keyboard a couple minutes later. Although it is not a complete lock up; I am still able to move the mouse, I just can't click anything, and with the keyboard I can use some shortcuts like CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and the windows key still makes the menu from the bottom left to come up. (although I can't use ALT+TAB or ALT+F4.)

If I log out when it is locked up, and log back in, it will remain locked up. If I restart the computer entirely it works fine, until I run the programs again.

It will not lock up with any games though, which I've found weird, but some other programs such as itunes will lock up. At first I thought it would be something with my sound becuase I first experienced it with windows media player, but after it locked up with only msn live running, I'm pretty sure it is a Windows issue.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
