This started recently, it seems like every so often while i'm on firefox, or sometimes just when i'm playing music, my pc locks up and if there is any sound playing it will repeat it in a loop, the mouse will become very sluggish and jerky, and i can't ctrl+alt+delete or anything, for about 10-20 seconds. I haven't really had any major changes to my PC lately, i only recently installed Lavasoft Personal Firewall, but it doesn't seem to help it's happened even when i've had the firewall cut off. Also, i booted up vista the other day and my task manager bar was not working, i could alt+tab to the tasks easy but they were not on the bar at the bottom, had to restart and then it worked fine again. Any suggestions as to what could cause these problems? I've ran AVG 8.0 2-3 times this week no infections, ran ad-aware as well, same deal, defragged last week but disk was reported as being "fine" and didn't have to defrag.
Running windows vista 32 Bit.
I just checked on this problem a little more, apparently it only happens when UAC tries to block me from doing something, everytime the UAC popup comes up asking if i want to allow a program to do something my PC loops sound and the mouse gets sluggish for a few secs.
