Today i was trying to install command and conquer generals after i got my new comp running and when i tried to install it and listen to music at the same time the music started going super slow and like it was chopped and screwd almost. I exited winamp and looked at cpu usage and its at 100% ive never seen this before.??????????????????

You know how they always recommend to exit all other windows before installing... :whistling:
Yeah, I usually ignore it too and keep working but sometimes it will backfire and bite you in the [bleep]-
uming that your computer has been rebooted :- have you tried uninstalling C&C and then reinstalling it with everything else closed?

Try that and if the problem persists then let us know and we'll dig deeper. :blink:

All problems start somewhere... It is possible that WinAmp and the Game drivers had some sort of conflict. My computer has issues with running itunes and inserting an audio CD - it shuts down instantly - for instance.
Software and drivers can get corrupted, just like hardware can futz out. See if you can replicate the problem by running both apps together.
