I have had extremely jumpy audio and video before on this computer so i re-installed windows and everything went normal. But after 1 month the problem is coming back again except this time it's different the symptomes comes up periodically. I suspected quicktime to be the culprit because these problems surfaced after i installed quicktime so I uninstalled it and everything went back to normal or at least i thought they did. Now after 3 or 4 hrs of usage on this PC the audio and video starts to get extremely jumpy making it impossible to edit or watch video. They only remedy is to reboot the sytem.
I have checked for spyware and virus, and none are present
I have googled the problem but can't seem to find an answer
I have a computer that's more than proficent in handling video and audio processing

So if any1 can help me out that would be great.
