It seems there is a software confliction on your system while that happens.
Maybe there is a third party software that is running some network
connection tasks which interrupts the connection of your media player. You
can check to see whether there is a antivirus software which needs to update
its data with the server on a schedule or anything which may need to run
some refreshment with a server on the Internet. Besides that, maybe you will
like to keep the related drivers and all patches updated on your machine.
Sometimes if you drag the process bar of the movie often, some earlier media
program may crash too.
You can create a memory dump file to see what is running at the moment while
the issue happens. The information on the following links gives some clue
about how to create them manually by pressing a combination of keys and how
to read those dump files. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/244139/en-us http://support.microsoft.com/kb/969028/en-us
