Hello

This is my second posting for the same problem. I thought it was a malware issue but that was fixed from a prior posting, see http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/130436/infected-with-csrssexe/.

What happens is this: the sound is choppy and sluggish when I play back ANY audio on my computer. It doesn't matter if the source is online, windows media player, or iTunes. And what I mean by sluggish or choppy is, for example, right now I am listening to Liverpool FC via streaming audio using windows media player. Once every 20-30 seconds the audio is sluggish and choppy, for example, a word such as "football" should take one second to say but when the problem occurs it takes 3 seconds to play back and the sound is choppy.

Anyone have any ideas? Is my sound card corrupt? Or worse!?

Thanks for the help

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I did follow the last suggestion and did defrag my computer even though the diagnostic suggested i didn't need it. I also did a disc clean up, removed old files and unused programs as well. I have a 60gig hard drive and am using only half the space now.
I'll follow the link you suggest and test my computer.
Thanks!

I ran the test and the results were (I don't know how to post the page) my "system performs extremely well" on their benchmarks and i had a yellow flag in my hard drive section because i use 8% in uncashed speed. And the internet category had a yellow flag because i use a wireless router.
If you could suggest a way to post the results i will do so.
Thanks
Jordan
