I would think maybe spyware or something. Do other programs lag and stuff of that sort? Or maybe the video file is corrutp? But even then it would just give you an error message. Try running some anti virus/spyware tools.

Did you try Getting the latest Version of WMP and reinstalling?

Theres always VLC or Winamp.

THis is a fresh install. So no spyware
Windows is not currupt, i checked
I use VLC sometimes, but videos online use WMP, and those freeze also....

EDIT:
Versions 10 and 11beta also have the same problems

Install VLC and Mplayer and THEN install the K-Lite Codec Pack.

Should work fine, seeing as how VLC is EXTREMELY light weight compared to bloated-ole'-Windows-Media-Player, you are either halucinating and making up the lag, or blaming the lag caused by something else on VLC.
