WMP12/WMC takes too long to update libraries.

I just installed Windows 7 (full/clean install), run the latest major updates.  I have a good, fast machine with lots of memory and power.  I have a disc dedicated to my MP3 and pretty large collection.  WMC takes about 1 second to add a song.  So far, is reached around 5000 and there is still much to do.

I did everything already suggested in this forum (Ran SFC, unchecked all the options, the modified permissions, etc.).

What I want to know is two things.  (1) is there a known performance problem and if so what is going to get fixed.  (2) if MS claims that there are no bugs, then please tell us how you have set it up and I'll try once more.

I'm looking for a Home Media solution and I had hoped THAT WMC was the answer.  If it does not, I will buy my first Apple:)

I finally found a solution!

I had the same problems reported on this fourm (just try to load MP3), I tried EVERYTING suggested by MS and other nothing helps...  I spent 2 weeks trying to solve this problem. I rebuilt, restored, reguritated everything and exhausted all the options! I even tried to 'downgrade' to WMP 11.

On my last attempt, I formatted my drive and made a new clean install of W7. I did all the updates - clean, new - nothing other than pure W7.  I started WMP and added my music drive to the music library.  It began with great speed - my media library update then completely stagnated at around 55000 songs...  I waited for an hour and finally it says update COMPLETE!  Yes...  I was excited!  I when to browse my collection of the artist and he said "There are no items in your music library".

SOLUTION - I went to the store, paid a lot $$$ for a mac (my first), responsible for my music, photos and videos with NO PROBLEM AND IT was WORKING PERFECTLY!

I now have a beautiful Windows 7 PC to surf the internet.  There is a serious problem with WMP/WMC - such a shame because W7 is a great product, but your MD destroyed it completely.  I'm NOT an apple fan, have always used MS products, but through WMP12, apple has converted another...

Someone in this post said "I to experiencing problems with WMP12.» But proposals to send the box back or get a Mac are exaggerated. " and I agree.  It is excessive, foolish and costly BUT IS WAS MY ONLY SOLUTION.

    What could be the reason for the update statement to run so long?

    You did not say what means "too long", but a simple and good reason might be that the scalar subquery on "s_postn" using a full table for each run scan. Potentially this subquery is executed for each row of the table "ops_forecast_extract" that satisfies your filter predicates. 'Potentially' due to "filter/subquery optimization" cunning of the Oracle execution engine that tries to cache results of already executed of instances of subquery. Given that the in-memory hash table that contains these cached results is limited in size, the optimization algorithm depends on the sort order of data and could suffer collisions of hash that it is unpredictable, how this optimization works in your particular case.

    You can view the execution plan, it should at least tell you how Oracle will run the scalar subquery (that tell you nothing about this "filter/subquery optimization" feature).

    Follow the generic guidelines how to generate a useful plan explain output and how to post here:

    Could please post a correctly formatted explain you plan output using DBMS_XPLAN. SCREEN, including the 'Predicate information' section below the plan to provide more details about your statement. Please use the noformat} [{noformat} code {noformat}] {noformat} before tag and {noformat} [{noformat} / code {noformat}] {noformat} tag or after the noformat} {{noformat} code {noformat}} {noformat} tag before and after to improve the readability of the outing:

    In SQL * more:


    Note that the DBMS_XPLAN package. DISPLAY is only available from 9i on.

    In 9i and above, if "Predicate information" section is missing from the DBMS_XPLAN. Output display, but you get the message "Plan table is old version" instead, you must recreate your plan table using the script server '$ORACLE_HOME/rdbms/admin/utlxplan.sql '.

    In previous versions, you can run the following in SQL * Plus (on the server) instead:


    A different approach in SQL * more:


    also displays the execution plan.

    In order to get a better understanding where your statement passes the time, you might want to turn on SQL tracing as described here:

    When your query takes too long...

    and after the "tkprof' out here, too.

    I have replace my SSD HARD drive (2 hard drives 120 GB each RAID 0) w / Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. After the replacement windows take longer time to activate the mouse and the keyboard - 5/10 seconds.

    Any help?

  • Hearing of 2015 CC takes too long to start

    Hearing of 2015 CC takes too long to start. As more than a minute.

    Using administrator rights does not make a difference.

    Fresh install... even though I updated from Windows 8.1 to 10 Windows (Windows updater) and I had hearing in Win8.1 so... is there any cleaner Adobe application that I could use to solve this problem?

    I found the solution!

    Simply find the file dynamiclinkmanager.exe on any folder of Adobe products, that is having this same problem, and remove the extension (.exe) format to it.

    Confirm the action and open the hearing as quickly as it should.

  • My daughter Air2 IPad takes too long to save. It is connected to wifi, connected and the screen is locked.mAny advice?

    My daughter Air2 IPad takes too long to save. It is plugged in, connected to wifi and the screen is locked. Any tips?

    How long is too long? If it lasts for more than a few hours - and even that is too long in my humble OPINION - then something is wrong. Completely backup, because it will not terminate in any case if its been so long, forced to reboot the device and try again.

    To force the reboot your device, press and hold the two buttons of sleep/wake and home for at least ten seconds, until you see the Apple logo.

    This may not work either. The backup may be damaged and you will need to remove and start over. However, its easy starting point and it will not hurt anything. If the backup will not end, he has nothing to lose.

  • Why it takes too long to open attachments of the e-mail account?

    It takes forever to download attachments from my mail account. I tried to do the following tasks explained on the vista forum: http://windowshelp.microsoft.com/Windows/en-US/help/6b046ae9-1434-4423-9303-400ff6fe686b1033.mspx#ESD, but none of the fixed work possible.

    After clicking on open on the box pop up asking if I want to open or save the attachment, it takes too long to download. The transfer window remains open to showing that he is ready to download, but rest in this window of bhox. I press cancel and try to open once again, if the chance that it opens this file, otherwise it takes forever forceing me to cancel. Very small files most of the time, usually between 50 KB should take seconds.

    I even tried to save the files, but once again the same process. The transfer case remains open but does not download.

    One of the ideas.

    Thanks in advance.


    It is not easy to tell exactly what is happening, but it must be something with the e-mail account provider and their page. For me, this case is not a typical problem of Vista, but you can try to find the solution on Vista from Microsoft IT Pro forum.

    By the way: you have an alternative email by another provider address? Is it the same situation?

  • Take too long time to come for Windows


    I have Pavilion g6-2031se and of the last two days it takes too long to come to Windows. I faced this problem for the first time and I do not use my notebook for Skype, Facebook and only very light work. Can someone help me with this?

    Thank you



    No worries, I would like you to try a clean boot. This allows the computer to boot without unnecessary programs or offers to start with it.  When you open this document of croll to the section "How to perform a clean boot" once listed there to expand the section for your operating system to get the appropriate instructions.

    Once you have made the appropriate changes, restart the computer at least 3 times and see if you notice a difference not how long it takes to start.

    Please answer as soon as possible.

    nearly 160 seconds


    1 - is the operating frequency of the matches with the 'old' RAM newly installed?
    2. how many RAM sticks are there?

    Let's try the following steps:

    Also launch memory diagnostic tool. How will I know if my computer has a memory problem?

  • LaserJetPro HP 1102w impression takes too long


    I installed HP 1102w on my laptop using the driver from the CD. Printing is configured using USB and ePrint is disabled.

    Printing takes very long (18 s). When I send a print job (even test page), I don't see that it appears in the printer job window liquid. However until I see that some data has been sent to the printer (for example 4 KB / 146kb) time is about 9 seconds. To start sending data up to what the page is printed is another second 8-9 so time total is Reiver 18 seconds in the best of cases.

    My laptop is:

    Windows Visa Business, 3 GB of RAM, Dual-Core clocked at 1.6 GHZ, SSD drive 120 GB.

    I tried to install the XPS (planned it will be faster) driver for this printer however failed to install with the 0x070c error code.

    Please have a tip how to print faster (reduce the time of 8 seconds until that data is sent to the printer)

    Thank you


    Hi @MKLI ,

    I see by your post that the printer takes too long to print in a USB connection. I would like to help you today.

    What kind of documents you print? (PDF, Txt)

    Have what applications you tried?

    Try a different file or application to see if you have the same results.

    Try and print a self-test on the printer hardware to see if it is a hardware or software problem.

    Printing a Configuration Page. Select the method two.

    Make sure the printer is connected directly to a wall outlet and the USB cable is connected directly to the computer. The USB cable should not be more then 6 feet. Try a different USB port on the laptop. Some ports are higher power then others. You may need to try another USB cable to see if that causes this problem.

    Check the power on the computer to see if that is causing the problem.

    How to make in the Windows Device Manager?

    Go to Device Manager, under Bus for each made USB root hub controllers right click and left click on properties, for the management of the power supply remove the check box for "allow the computer to turn off this device to save energy. It allows the computer to restrict or cut off the power for this unit.

    Restart the spooler to print on the laptop.

    Click Start (), type services.msc in the Search box and press ENTER.

    Find the service named print spooler, right click and select Properties. Click on stop and then click Start.
