After a month of using VISTA 32bit Ultimate Edition and using Windows Media player 11 I had absolutely no problems.

Now in the second month,Im noticing that Only Mp3 Files start cutting/or skipping in my PC WITHOUT ANY ERROR MSG.

But Any other file format like Wav and Mpeg vidoes seems to work perfectly well.

I tried playing Mp3 files in Real player& Winamp, it works perfectly well.

So why suddenly only MP3 Files seem to start cutting on my Vista 32bit System?

Pls find a solution to the problem

I tried scanning for spywares,still no point...

It could be a codec issue. You may want to ensure that you have your WMP11 set to download them automatically.

Also, the MS website has a number of codecs available for download.

One other thing to try would be a disk defragment.

Just to add to the above....Have you done some kind of registry cleaning in the past month, or any other maintenance?

It could be that the cleaner has got rid of the WMP codecs to play mp3s in WMP only. WMP 11 is a very tempremental player and anything that is missing that was installed as part of the OS will cause it to have a Duck Fit. Im not saying for definate that it IS the case, but a possibility. Using CCleaner on my system totally fcked it up. I had to do a reinstall!
As for a solution....you could try a system file check. There is a run though in the Tutorial section. Anything else, well I dont personally know anything as Ive never come across this SPECIFIC problem. Good Luck.
