I have had a similar problem with media player 7 and quick time player. In my case I believe I could use a little more memory ( or a new system Angry ).

You can run less in the background to pull up your resources ie: you only need explorer or perhaps you have already tried uninstalling and reinstalling if it is just a program gone bad. Did the early version that comes with win 98 work ok?

Try running the system in Diagnostics Startup Mode and if the problem goes away, then the problem is either too many apps (background apps) are running or one in particular is causing this. Let me know what happens.
