Some applications in Win2k freeze momentarily when I run them
As the title says, when I run some apps like Irfanview or Winamp, they just stay still and don't respond for even
minutes, and then de-freeze and work as if nothing happened. The situation doesn't occur only at the apps' startup,
but unpredictably. This happens since I re-installed the PC from zero, including HD formatting. Before the reinstall this never occured. Ideas?
