    CPU lags after song ends. (Windows XP Home)

    This problem has been accuring I think since I bought my computer, but just now is it bothering me. Every time I play a song, no matter what media player (e.g., Windows Media Player, Kazaa Media Player, RealPlayer, etc), once it ends the computer starts lagging (majorly slowing up), so that I can't really do anything until it works ago (about 1.5 minutes). But it happens everytime, but only when I am playing one song at a time. For example, if I have a playlist with 3 songs, they will all play smoothly until the last song. Or if I'm playing 1 song, and before it ends, I start playing another song, it will be fine until that song ends. But always, the last song I play, once it ends, the computer will lag. And it is making me mad. If anyone knows a solution, please tell me.

    Have you looked at the task manager to see what is using the CPU?

    Is it possible to decrease the amount of resources the RealPlayer G2 uses?

    The RealPlayer G2 can be system intensive depending on the type and bandwidth of the file being played. Video files and high bandwidth files use more resources than low bandwidth audio files. If you are experiencing high resource usage, lower the system usage setting within the Preferences.


    Open the Player
    Click Options then Preferences
    Click the Performance tab
    Move the slider bar closer to Lowest CPU usage
    Click OK to save the change

    The Audio Analyzer feature found in RealPlayer Plus uses the most system resources. Disabling it will reduce the amount of resources used by RealPlayer Plus.

    To disable the Audio Analyzer, do the following:

    Click the View menu and choose Audio Analyzer.
    In the Audio Analyzer submenu, choose "None."

    After playing like 5 songs thru Kazaa Media Player which I am pretty sure uses Windows Media Player to play it's songs. I changed the hardware excellerator to a lesser amount, and the computer doesnt freeze anymore after the song ends.
