Yeah I like programs that aren't that dark. And I don't care to mess with skins.
Besides I would have to edit all of of my 4K of MP3 files so that they would show up correctly in Winamp. Not something I want to spend my time doing.
So I moved the music to a spare 40 GB hard drive. I then installed an older iTunes version. I even took out a stick of RAM dropping the total down to 3 GB.
With music playing, Firefox open with 5 tabs, CPU is holding steady around 10 percent usage.
And the music still skips.
I have noticed that refreshing a page in Firefox makes the CPU go to 100 percent.
Starting to think this is a Windows XP issue, yet I have downloaded ALL available updates. I really miss Windows 7.
