WMP11 is horrible.

Are you running Vista? I know on my Vista machine, I had to right mouse click the little speaker icon on the taskbar, then click on "playback devices", click on speaker properties, then "enhancement tab", and disable all enhancements.

This also fixed that annoying "media changing" text while trying to load a song or video.

No I'm waiting for the first service pack for Vista. Only happens with wmp and is my favorite app. can control it with remote lol. It freezes like I overworked it and there is no way I could overwork my ram and processor. More hints without ditching wmp?
