    I am hoping that someone here can give me some advice to help solve my problem. I have a HDTV version of Spiderman 2 on my harddrive in the form of multiple ts files. When I tried to play them using Theatertek it would play but at times stutter badly so I had a look at the windows task manager to check how my cpu was doing. Theatertek was only using about 30 to 40% but explorer.exe was spiking the cpu up to 100%. My first thought was a trojan or spyware so I ran trojan hunter, adware and norton antivirus but nothing was found. I then played the files using VLC media player checking the task manager and found that my cpu was going between 40 and 60% usage and explorer.exe was hardly using any which makes me think that the problem is with Theatertek. My Computer specs are
    Athlon 3200+ XP
    Radeon 9600xt
    Asus deluxe motherboard
    512 3200 ram

    Playing all the files with the vlc player is not great as there is a pause between each file and I would like to find out what the problem is as Theatertek can play them without a pause and give me a better picture.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you
