Machine often locks, sound loops, must be restarted.
Posted on 2004-10-20
I have a question whose answer I am probably jussst overlooking.
At seemingly random times in my system's operation (USUALLY however when sound is running), the system will lock up, the sound will loop. I suspect the OS has become corrupted partially because this started right after I cleaned out a NASTY adware/spyware infection. I'm pretty sure that doing a reformat/reinstall would fix this problem. However,I'm kind of hoping to avoid that. Also, the reason I'm only giving this 80 is because in the back of my head I KNOW this can be solved with a reformat, but I'm hoping...hoping against hope, that there is another way.
