    Just completed a build of a new system.
    Q6600 cpu, Gigabyte GA-P35-DQ6, 8gb ram, vista ultimate 64bit.
    The moment i start AnyDVD, my USB mouse and keyboard crawl, as if the system is so busy that it can not process mouse movements. Every one or 2 seconds it will process one input event or so. Using keyboard and mouse becomes impossible.

    I am a software engineer, so if you need help debugging this issue (in case you can't repro) i am glad (to a limited time investment) to help (running debug build, sending traces etc...)

    Ah, I know someone with almost the exact same setup and was having the exact same issue. Here is how I resolved it:

    I discovered disconnecting a SATA Pioneer burner stopped the stuttering.

    I then updated bios.

    I moved the SATA burner off of the orange ICHR9 SATA controller and onto one of the Jmicron (Gigabyte) purple SATA ports.

    That stopped the stuttering.

    Then I took a look in bios, and I seem to recall switching the SATA port functionality from "AHCI" to "IDE/Raid" (I think).

    Also, (and I can't be sure now, because it was few months ago) I think I installed one of the Sata raid drivers from Gigabyte's website

    Anyway, that individual with the exact same motherboard, q6600, etc. is no longer having mouse stuttering/system hiccuping (was pretty annoying because the system would only respond about every 3 seconds) issues with Anydvd after I left.

    Then I thought about that situation for a while, mulling over a nice mug of apple cider (as I recall) and told that person to RMA his 1.0 motherboard for a 1.1 revision.

    Anyway, it was sort of a screwy hardware/driver issue involving the SATA ports on that motherboard.

    Thank you, and sorry, i thought i'd add more content to the issue by showing that there is a repro. Thanks, i'll try your suggestions.
