windows media player 10 problems
I've been reading about problems that people have been having with Windows Media Player 10. i used automatic updates to install it, not realizing that i didn't want it. WHen i installed it and used Frodo, it bogged down my system, like other people were experiencing. i uninstalled it and went back to WMP 9, but i had the same problem. THe only way i can get frodo player to play music is to load WMP, turn of visualizations, and use it. its still sluggish, but doens't play choppy music. I even tried downloading the new installation and installling it again, nothing. When i play music from WMP, not frodo, it uses more system resources than frodo, but in frodo, it still skips. Is there a way to complete removing WMP 9 and reinstall it? or any other suggestions to help this?
Skipping with Windows Media Player
I experienced a similar problem with terrible skipping especially the first time a song was played, and only up to a certain point in the song. I hadn't had a skip in the previous two years. I had taken the computer out of the car to work on it, and I had it connected to the net to get updated. It hadn't been updated in two years, and I let it install all updates, critical and optional. I tried unistalling WMP 10 and reverting back to 9, it did not help at all. I suspected it was XP Service Pack II, so I uninstalled everything that had been installed during the update (about 80 updates). Had to uninstall them in reverse order, with about 20 reboots in between. Finally after completely uninstalling all the updates and backing out of SPII, the skipping magically disappeared. XP sucks. I suck for installing XP on the mobile PC in lieu of Win2000.
