Don't know if this is the right spot but here goes. Running Windows 7 on HP machine with AMD processor. Lately the computer will freeeze for about 5-10 seconds and then return to normal. This will happen about every 2-3 minutes. Usually happens when on the internet. I have run my virus scan (AVG), Malewarebytes and CC Cleaner but no change. What's up?

double check a service called Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service. I can hog a ton of memory and proccessor time causing those blips. It is really unneeded for 99.999% of windows users. Stop the service and then disable it.

I went to uninstall programs and could not find it listed but I know it is on my computer. How do I find this service to stop it?

I stopped the service but there are still small 5-10 second freeze-ups. Any other suggestions?

Open task manager using ctrl-shift-esc. Do some various stuff to try to cause the short hangs and watch the program list. See if there is one that spikes the processor usage during that time. If so that is you culprit.
