Auto Play not playing the game

I have recently had a problem with auto play kicking in and freezing my system momentarily.

I am running a system on XP with SP2 recently installed.

It is driving everyone in my house nuts because there is no ryhme or reason as to why it is happening.

My son playing on MOHAA get it and after three events of this kind it closes his game.

It has happened to my wife when she is trying to do her University work.

It has happened four times whilst typing this cry for help.

I have bee to the Microsoft Site and used the Auto Play checker which tell me I don't have a problem.

I have tried the reverse of a fix "Auto Play Not Working" and that doesn't help.

Can anyone out there help please.

Hi Guys,

Hotant my problem is the reverse of yours my auto play keeps kicking in for no reason.

Stalion tried that today and no change.

Just done it again. It appears that it is looking for something but quite what I don't know.

I am tying noose as I type.
