I can't attest to your specific scenario, but I have a ritual I go through every time I use my laptop at an event.

First - I go through SERVICES and stop all that I don't need (such as my wireless, networking functions).

Second - I go into task manager and END PROCESS on those items which don't need to be running (such as Anti-virus, iPod, java update, task scheduler).

Finally, I plug in my Maya 44 USB, wait for it to be recognized, start PCDJ, and all runs well. In the past, when I didn't shut down unneeded processes, I would get skipping or stuttering.

The question I get all the time when I tell others about this: How do you know which things to shut down? Look at them, then Google them! For Example: ZCfgSvc.exe is running in Task Manager. When I looked it up, I found out it was for my Wireless card, which I don't need/use at an event, so I shut it down.
