TV skipping on PMC

Guest

I have the creative zen PMC and a media center PC. When i transfer tv shows
over to the PMC through windows media player, and then watch them sometimes
the video skips about 3-4 times in a half an hour show. Is this normal? If
not what should i do?

Hi,

It's not normal, and usually occurs because some application has usurped the
system cpu and ram temporarily during the file write process. What you need
to do is eliminate background interference.

Here, this should help:

Basically, you may not be looking for one specific program, but you may have
a number of things running unnecessarily, and some may even been unwanted
pests. Make sure AV is up to date, and clean the system with these spyware
removal applications:

Adaware www.lavasoft.de
Spybot www.safer-networking.org

From MVP Richard Harper on cleaning up malware infested systems:
http://rgharper.mvps.org/cleanit.htm

This one can help you avoid these programs from being installed in the first
place:
Spyware Blaster: www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html

Most are best run from Safe mode where the crap programs can easily be
removed. If they are active (normal mode), they will often resist removal.
