Since yesterday, I've been having problems with my computer freezing. It only happens when I`m listening to music, and if I recall correctly, only when using Ares to play it. It plays fine for a few seconds and then the computer freezes and that broken record effect happens.
I just downloaded the new version of Ares to see if that was the problem. I`ll update if that fixes the problem.
Thanks!

I would make sure your computer has the correct hardware and drivers to meet the minimum requirements of Ares.

I also remember my Mom's old laptop had this problem when playing CDs with the "CD Player" program and using battery power. I don't know if this would be relavent at all to your situation, however.

Well, Ares wasn't the problem. Im about to uninstall the drivers to the soundcard ( Soundblaster Live! 24 bit) and re-install it.

Check your Event Viewer for error messages around the time of the freezes - that may give you and idea of where the culprit lies!

Go to Start...Control Panel...Administrative Tools...Event Viewer. There's 3 categories in the left hand pane - check each one of them for errors.

Often times it happens that a program will stop working - and ti's not the program's fault. In those cases, it's usually another bit of software that makes the actual error.
