Error Messages:

I am about at my wits end . . .Whenever I am playing a game or using any Windows Media Player visualizations, my comp hangs on me.  I play MMORPG's and graphix go ok for a bit then slow to stopping, then resume at full speed again.  I thought it was the game, however I am unable to run a kids game on my PC without it doing the same thing. It locks up just the same using any visualization on WMP.  I have updated drivers and using DX 9.0b.  I have checked my mem and hard drive and they are not the issue.  I have also tried disabling any firewalls and antivirus programs.  My computer is a 1.5 gig intel proc with 896 RAM.  Some help is suggesting a bios upgrade.  I am not even sure what my bios should be set at now, so I am thinking upgrade is prolly not a good idea.....Please help me if you can

Seems like you covered everything! I would run a spyware remover to see if perhaps you have some that are using up bandwidth "phoning home".
