help - unable to figure this one out

hello all

hope you can help with this problem - i am unable to sort it out and it's driving me crazy

i have winamp playing in the background while working at my pc and this is where the problem is - everytime i type on the keyboard whether it's within folders or using word etc the music sound becomes distorted and slows down.
this also happens just by holding down the control key.
i have done a full uninstall and re-installed winamp but this does not cure the problem.
this problem has only recently started
has anyone any suggestions or answers - i would be grateful.

pc - winXP home
winamp version 5.09 free / full

Try the DirectSound config tweaks. Close Winamp, Windows and reboot the computer after making the DS tweaks.

thanks - followed your link
making changes to the device and buffering tabs seems to have done the trick - although i have not yet rebooted.
i will make the further changes if neccessary - but for now
back to quality music - i appreciate your help.
many thanks

You're welcome.

Usually a reboot is not required after making the DS changes. However, every so often the changes don't take affect until a reboot.
