This problem was solved but reapeared.
Basicly when ever i play any video file with vlc (and sometimes with other media players) my computer and mouse freezes for a minute and then recovers only to freeze again in another minute later.
I've updated my video drivers and uninstalled and reinstalled vlc but the problem persists.

Have you tried the usual defrag, adware, virus, spyware scans etc? run these and then see if the problme is still there

Check how much RAM is available when you play these videos and how much when you don't. Anything less than 64,000kb available means you have very little RAM available and your PC is using virtual mem (hard drive) hence the freeze ups. Check for spyware and viruses as suggested above regardless.

I have run counterspy, Bitdefender, MWMSRT, Trojan remover, and trendmicro housecall.
I have defragged.
Available RAM is 235,000kb but this doesn't change when it freezes, However my CPU rans around 0% to 10% then every lag (or freeze) it spikes up to 100%
then it went hardcore and the cpu started changing between 60%-!00% and available RAM went down to 52000kb.

and when i open a program (like firefox) it does nothin for about 30 secs then the cpu goes above 50% and then the program opens and it returns to 0%

I have never heard of counterspy or MWMSRT... try scanning with Ad-aware SE personal and Spybot Search and Destroy.

How old is the install of XP(?)?

Check what you have in Startup and remove everything that is non-essential.

I have already removed whats in the startup menu and msconfig.

MWMSRT stands for Microsoft Windows Malware Software Removal Tool.
I'll try Ad-aware and spybot but i thought counterspy is better then both of them.

My XP is up to date, what do you mean how old?

I have the following on my pc,maybe one of them might work for you.:)

VLC,MediaMonkey-(really good:thumbs: ),Gom Player-(really good as well:thumbs: ),Leadtek Winfast Dvd,Windows Media Player 11,Quintessential Player,Media Player Classic,Winamp,Quicktime,Divx,Jet Audio Basic,Power Dvd.

Do you have things running in the background at the same time?

Do you have all the codacs that you need?

Do you do any P2P/file swapping/downloading etc?

Only bitdefender, there are alot of processes running that i don't know what they are for.


Do you have all the codacs that you need?

Yeah I went back to the old video files i used to play with vlc and they did not work aswell.


Do you do any P2P/file swapping/downloading etc?
I download files but i don't use p2p or file swapping.
