No, leave lastfm.exe then.

Sorry, should have included instructions for using msconfig to disable them.

Keep a record of what you disable so you will know what to enable if necessary at a later time.


Click on Start then Run, type msconfig and press Enter.
Click on the Startup tab and disable the ones you want.
Click Apply then OK
Reboot and see how things are.

There are excellent alternatives for RealPlayer (Real Alternative) and Quicktime (QuickTime Alternative) that are less intrusive and use less resources. You may want to think about uninstalling them and installing the alternatives.

Ok, I did those actions. Some of the processes weren't on the list this time though..

And..
There is a huge improvement. I can understand what's going on with sound now.
I am running a scan quickly with AVG Anti-Spy and have found a tracking cookie in Skype (one of the programs I was having trouble with), would that affect it at all?

I have noticed that when I play music/videos through Media player/Youtube (and any other web based viewer), there is little, or no problem. It's just things like Skype, the last.fm music player software and Ableton.

Can't help with those apps. I guess you have to decide if they are worth using.

Other than that though, it sounds like things are much better.

After playing more music, it seems like it hasn't really helped...

Would a factory restart be a stupid option?

It should get you back to where you were when you purchased the computer. Make sure you save you data first as it will completely wipe the drive.

I don't mind about losing anything too much.

Someone told me once about I can restart by using [Alt] and something else. Is this correct?

What is the make and model of your computer? How you do a restore to factory settings varies with each one.

Some require a CD, some you press F10, F11 or F12 when booting. The Users manual should have that info and it should be available online as a PDF from HP.

The manual is available here: http://askiris.toshi...S... 0 28360286

It looks like you need a Recovery CD. Do you have it? If not you can buy one from Toshiba. Just call their support line (get number from web site).
