    and when starting applications while listening to mp3's slows the system down and makes the sound lag.

    So anyone know a fix to this? I'm running with the latest drivers from the official site, but that's not helping :(

    I have creative SB live player 1024 and don't notice this. The only thing I do notice is at their web update site, it tells me I don't have any creative devices installed.

    I spose you could uninstall and use the drivers from windows update and not use creatives wdm driver just their software.

    Have you just recently updated to DirectX 9.0c?? It could be this, I know some people have had a problem with Cubase type Apps because of it

    Maybe try moving it to another PCI slot, especially if it's sharing an IRQ with your video card.
