Why does my laptop freeze briefly and become slow every time after I watch a movie?

Erlis D. September 18, 2011

After watching a movie on my laptop, the desktop freezes for a while, like 3 or 5 minutes, and sometimes I need to restart Windows to be back to high speed. Usually, I use ‘Media Player Classic’ to watch my movies. Can anyone help me on this?

    I think it was a codec problem. Since uninstalling all the video players and codecs and installing the latest updates, now the problem doesn't exist. Thank you!! :)

    Corrupted codec, corrupted movie file. Problem with video driver? Uninstall nvidia driver reboot laptop and let windows to reinstall a new one.

    create a new account and make it administrator then delete the old account
