One of the easyest fixes i have been able to tell people havein probs with WMM/WMM2 is USE VDub, do - streams/stream list [disable audio].
as for Video, just Video *streaming video
alot of people think that 100% of the problem starts with video codecs in windows crap system, this is not intirely true... audio muted in wmm still requres the codec for it to play, this causes mass histaria with the gerble keeping your dell from crashing wmm, ram helps always, but mainly the audio on video is your downfall, i have people cheer when they can drop 500 clips at once just to test it, 5% cpu useage? YAY
so thats what ive done to save people, aslo FFDshow is crap for all editors so if ya got that yer almost totaly screwd with wmm.
Also, wmm for vista can do VOB and MKV now, no real issues with vista when it comes to audio/video now.
Because you are good at amv's dosent meen you can't get yer arse kicked.
