    Probably stuck when loading a new file, do you notice and increased HDD/CPU activity in task manager at that time? Have you tried, if it happens in another audio player, WMP is known to have some glitches.

    I don't see an increase in memory (indeed supposedly) this new machine shouldn't have that problem...
    I don't hear that problem with VLC
    Anyhow I want to fix my WMP
