Possible Fix For FSX "Not Responding"

Recommended Posts

After weeks of research and trying all the fix's I may of found the cause of my FSX locking up. I used Norton Internet Security to monitor my memory usage while flying and that over time I found that Windows Media Player was using more and more memory until my 4G's were full and then it would lockup. I did a search for the Media Player file wmpnetwk.exe and found out how to disable the program which I do not use on my Sim computer. I have now flown many hours without a lockup on my Windows 7 system.

Wait you're saying that Windows 7 runs Media Player in the background even if you don't actually open the program?

I thought this topic was about FSX crashing on exit actually....I never have a lockup when I run the program.

Yes on my system. I believe at some time in the past I assigned Media Player is my player. That I believe is when the lockup problem started. For some reason Media Player usage of memory keeps growing. It started with less than FSX which runs around

1.3-1.5 KB. As I flew MP started with 1.2KB and went up to 2.6 kb and then if would freez with a light screen but the sound would still be on. I would close FSX but did not have to reboot to fly again.

wmpnetwk is the Windows Media Player Network Sharing Service, it's job is to act as a media server for your network. 99% of people don't use it, disabling it is the correct course of action.
