With plenty of RAM and Hard Drive space, with running XP, there are a few things that it could be.
Your file associations could be messed up. When you have two different applications that run the same type of file (such as video or audio), and you switch between them, a conflict may occur. In some cases, both of them may open when you play a CD or watch a movie. Play a song or watch a video for a few seconds, minimize it, and open up the Task Manager (CTRL+ALT+DEL) and click the Processes tab. Please post back the Image name that is taking up the most CPU%.
It is also possible that another (unrelated) application is opening when playing these files. Although I may not be able to help on the details, you may want to post a Hi Jack This log, and see if it will help out.
There are a few more items that it could be, but I have ran out of time, and will post back later tonight.
We are all curious like a cat. We wonder, we ask, we learn.
Please post back when a suggestion works, so that others may learn.
