Since yesterday I am having great problems with Media Player. Everytime I play a song the CPU usage goes to 100% and stops me doing anything else on the machine. This is the case whether the track is on my hard disk or CD. When I close Media Player, the music stops, media player goes from screem, but CPU usage is still in the high 90's.
Currently running Media Player 11 but the same happens with Media player 10.
The program used is a utility called 'Whats Running'. Task manager also shows 100%, and is what I use to shut Media Player down. The funny thing is, if I play an avi file, there is no problem. I have tried all the usual things like System Restore, AVG and ad-aware, but do help.
Started in safe mode, but WMP would not start. Got message 'Device attached to system not functioning' Went into Device Manager and Yellow ? was against Parallel device. I have a Parallel printer connected to the computers parallel port and another PCi parallel card inserted for second printer.
