PC intermittently freezes when I try to run Soulseek

I have a problem with Soulseek, but I think that I can find the solution here...at least I hope :tazz:
Soulseek is a p2p filesharing program and for some reason it causes Windows to freeze intermittently. The program will cause Windoes to freeze for about 20 seconds, unfreeze for about 10, then repeat - over and over. I tried to experiment with it by waiting it out but it just went on forever.

The tricky thing is that it only occurs when I am interfacing with Soulseek a lot - if I let Soulseek do its thing in the background and don't mess with it, then it'll run just fine, but if I try to interface with the program too much, like when I have multiple searches, browse chat rooms, etc. then it causes the lock up. I've tried a couple of versions and it does the same thing. Only thing I havent tried is reverting back to an old version.

Thanks for the help.
