I started getting very choppy internet sound (I hadn't made any changes to my computer, that I can think of). Any sound played using software other than internet explorer or firefox will work fine (i.e. winamp, or windows media player). I tried unistalling/reinstalling adobe flash player and this does not work (see http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/ie8-windows_other/are-you-having-problems-with-internet-explorer/d86858ac-0822-415a-9c3a-0469c6f8f08e). I am running winXP professional 32 bit. I don't use Firefox, but decided to install this web browser to see if I had the same issue (which I do).

Anyone have a fix for this?

Come to think of it, I might have started having this problem when I downloaded the recent update for the Adobe Flash Player.

Go to the control panel and open Sounds and Audio Devices. Select the Audio tab. In the MIDI music playback section, what default device is selected? Do you have any other options for the default device?

Alright. You might want to try and remove adobe flash player using the procedure listed here. The download and install the latest version of flash to see if it makes any difference.

Those were the only 2 ideas I had off the top of my head. I'll see what else I can find.

I found this guide. You can probably skip to step 5. Also, I realize the title says it's a fix for no sound, but it's worth a shot for fixing choppy sound.
