    He has a bunch of the letters correct, just in the wrong order, more than likely he wasn't in the correct state of mind, but I could be wrong.

  8. Much like Carpo writing isn't as inst, twice.

    Thorlof - have you got the latest version of iTunes? Try updating your audio drivers too.
    Also, when it happens open Task Manager and see which program is causing it.

    you know what i that you Unleashed for the advice and as for you spelling nazis piss off
    typing in the dark is hard at any rate i have done all that i am thinking it may be something elts my computer is ok as far as not to many programs running at once i have also noticed that when i run a jahva program it really slows my computer down could this be running in the backgroung invisible and causeing problems?

    oh and also a few weeks ago i did a windows xp non destructive reinstall
    could this be causing problems as well?

    and that's thank you Unleashed for the advice

    I would say if you had to do a reinstall that your windows is in need of a fresh start, I would suggest to make back ups of all the things you want to keep like photos and music and game saves and then start with a fresh clean install of windows and all the drivers needed for your machine.

    thanks i am gonna do that i guess i think it the only thing i can do
     
  13. I used to get problems with Java programs doing that, they really, really slowed my machine up.
    But the latest versions of Java for about the last year have stopped it, I think they just ironed out the bugs that caused it. Make sure you have the latest version of the Java runtime (Version 6 Update 3), from here.

    I find when you are at the point that a repair install needs to be done your better off going ahead with a clean install.
