I am running on Windows XP and am having problems with my audio breaking up and slowing down. Any audio file that is played does this. I am also having problems with shut down time taking quite awhile. It takes my computer 4-5 minutes to shut down. I have tried restoring my computer and that does not seem to work. Any help would be aprpecitated.
Try do a clean out. Do not attempt to do any restoration unless it is your final resort. Restoration if done not complying to the root of the problem, would only increase and give more problem. If shutting down takes quite a while, there are bound to be programs running at the back ground and if it takes too long, it would attempt to ask user to force end program......sometimes it might be missing files that keeps the program running and sometimes would be that multiple programs are running and your windows does not have enough V.memory to cope with it. It would also happen to booting up. Perhaps i can offer you a check list....go to control panel>add remove program. Check the pograms you have and make sure there are no programs that conflict with another.....e.g NAV and Macafee.
