Hi,

Do your MP3 songs skip on a standalone player or on your computer?

If it is on a player such as an iPod what model is it?

Do you create your own MP3 files or are these downloaded, If so from where?

Let us know

Thanks

Reply to Eric's Post: Hi
It happens on Computer only, and it is happening with Downloaded MP3s as well as CDs that have been imported to MP3 to play on PC. MP3s seem to work fine once they are transfer to portable MP3 players (eg: Cell phones, MP3 walkmans). I thought it was the MP3s but it is not, it's the PC I think.

Thanks again

Also which player software are you using?

Thanks

Ok,

First of all could you use this guide from netsquirrel to turn off anything you can from startup http://www.netsquirrel.com/msconfig/msconfig_xp.html

Once you have done that could you tell me what antivirus you use.

Thanks
