you allowed media player access to the net and it's slowing your connection?

block media player in your firewall.

ihave 1mb speed ,its when ive got the media turned on listening too a cd , that the game seems too slow down ..

if your net connection is being used by something else, then it will slow an ONLINE game.

Have you ran spyware, adware scans?

Exactly how "online" is the game in question?

Is part of it run from your PC, like any conventional online multiplayer game?

WMP can be a bit resource heavy. Perhaps playing your CDs with a lighter alternative would cure the problem.

Jet Audio, Winamp, Media Player Classic etc.
