I have just got over a big malware/spyware problem [with the help of the Gurus here on BleepingComputers]. Everything works ok except for WMP. Played a CD on two different players into WMP and it runs at the right speed but the voices are distorted [very high pitched].
I copied a track in Adobe Audition and it is the same. Same in Adobe after Effects. Same in Adobe Encore.
I tried a track that I had recorded before I had my problems and it was distorted.
I ripped a track on another computer [played perfect] and networked it to the faulty one and it was distorted.
Any help would be appreciated as I am trying to finalize a wedding DVD.

Yes, to no avail. I do not think that it is WMP as other programmes are affected as I said. Could the sound card cause this problem. I have since found out that Adobe Premiere plays the music correctly.

No question marks and no crosses.
Did Driver Update and it said that Windows could not find a better match.
Did an uninstall and rebooted now it works fine in all my programmes.
Thank you, Gurus, don't know what we would do without you.

Nothing really at the moment except that when I try to delete a file it tell me that it is in use even though it may not have been opened for a month or more but I can live with that as I have been told it would mean reinstalling Windows. Sometimes I can delete by networking from my other computer.
Annoying but liveable with.

if its a file thats not needed or used
or its not critical to the system

Try using unlocker to delete the unwanted file

http://www.filehippo.com/download_unlocker/

Once the programs installed
Right click on file/folder and click on Wand
choose delete and reboot computer
