Delayed sounds & too fast video playing

  1. HELLO!!
    This is my second problem with my computer - audio&video. Soon after installing WinXP I noticed that *.wav sounds (for example standard windows clicks and messangers sounds) are sometimes good(I open 2 or 3 folders) and then they are delayed (I click to open another folder, click is heard after 2-3sec delay). MP3 files such as music are played good. Ive got standard built in mobo audio card VIA AC'97.
    Second thing is about movies, when I download some short ones from internet (e.g. 30sec) which are avi or mpg, or wmv. I play one of them and everything is played too fast (i think about 2x). After several reopening the file or player everything is correct. What should I do about it?? I think its about codecs. Which one you prefer?? Should I install some megapack or what??

    I appretiate every word of help :) C U

    First uninstall any codec packs you have installed and then update WMP, then install this codec pack.
