PC video problem

Sometime last week I started having a problem playing back video files with Windows Media Player 10 (and find the same problem with WinAmp). Every fifteen seconds or so the video skips/stalls/jerks and then proceeds. This is infuriating. Now I am noticing a problem I think is related: every fifteen seconds or so as I type these words the entry of letters stalls for a second or so and then starts up again. This leads me to believe I have something hinky going on with my video card. Or something. Any ideas? I have run virus/worm scans with two programs and that does not seem to be the problem...

Update: I think I have found the problem. I had disabled the 3D refresh rate override and this was producing a conflict between some applications and the desktop refresh rate. Crossing fingers this was actually the problem.
