Media Player 10 problems

Hi, basically my problem is that i have 35Gb of music on my pc, and when i play anything on media player 10, it stutters whether i am doing anything or not, but more if i am on the net or running progs obviously.
I have 2 hard drives, one has windows and other things (60Gb), the other has games, vids and music (120Gb split into 4 drives). On C:\ I have about 1.5Gb free and my music drive has prob 30Gb free.

I realise it must be a memory issue but i have 2Gb of ram, and have tried disabling all non-essential programs, defragging all drives, deleting temp internet files\cookies etc, increasing the paging file size. I have tried using other media players such as quintessential, but to no avail.

I have noticed in task manager that i have ituneshelper.exe (i think) and another apple prog running, though i do not own an ipod (i have itunes installed), so i will never use these programs; I jus thought that there must be other proccesses that i do not use and taking up much needed memory. I have FreeRam installed but disabling it makes no difference, i dont see the point in having it at all actually...

Can you suggest any things i could do or programs that could help me please...

if you don't use itunes then I would unistall it.

Free up space on your c drive. You are running out of room for your swap file. You need at least 15% free on the drive in order for defrag to work properly. Not to mention since you have 2gigs of memory that you should be running with 3 gigs of minimum free space on c:

Or you can upgrade your c drive to a larger hard drive.
