I’ve been able to fix these 2 events to the beginning Asio overload…
1.After I bought a new Antivirus (Norton 2011) and updated it,I did a “deep scan” which includes the scanning of programs files…(little did I know that the antivirus by default is set to automaticaly remove cookies) and the report thereof suggested that there were several cookies (used by most websites,they’re suppose to be safe but if they are too many,they may clog your pc and make it lower in performance)
I assume the deep scan and removal of those cookies by the Antivirus affected negatively the program files that should maintain stability in my pc when doing audio streaming.Advice:Do not set your antivirus to automatically remove cookies…Remove them manually after the scan while you check which ones are appear to be sinister.I’m tempted to assume that the antivirus’ may not be accurate in being able to exclude some programs files that are important for a smooth riding of a pc.(I stand to be corrected if need be but this is my observation).Twice this happened with me after doing a deep scan that checks even the hidden program files.
2.The 2nd observation when I got Asio overloads is when I approached,as it seems, a particular batch of windows update…especially the last batch…This happened many times and I’m sure it’s not a coincidence that I got spikes each tim I reached that batch of windows update.Solution:I repaired my Operating System and and downloaded an image file of Windows Xp sp3 and saved it on a Cd and “My Documents” instead having to download it again and again each time I repair my system.Now I hardly get Asio overloads since I avoided that last batch of windows update.Who knows may be you have to avoid a particular batch of Win 7 update for you to avoid Asio overload problem…In any case,be in the habit of taking note of the events that coincided with Asio overload because many users have experienced Asio overload after different events from mine.My events do not mean the latter is the overall cause of Asio OL problem.
In the end,repairing your Operating System has proved to produce desired results each time I did it…especially that I sacrificed an amount of download bytes to get the 500 Mbytes image file of Win Xp sp3 only once…so it does not cost me anymore to repair my Operating System.
