I just started using WinMX and I notice after opening a chat channel or something like that it starts to lock up my computer and it stays locked up for about 10 seconds and then I have like 5 seconds to move my mouse and then the 10 second lockup starts up again. I've noticed the same problem with the Remote Desktop application called VPN. I stopped using it for that reason, and switched to PcAnywhere which works fine. During setting up WinMX I opened ports that WinMX needed for TCP and UDP, then forwarded them to my lan ip. I noticed that you can choose whatever port you wish. Has anyone had this problem and know how to fix it?
