Well, it's certainly not normal. Something is wrong somewhere.
Are you familiar enough with computers to start doing routine troubleshooting (meaning things you would do no matter which program was freezing)?
Apart from the excellent advice given, one of the things I found out the hard way (I'm not suggesting it's your problem for sure, but worth a look) is that a lot of timeline-play freezes are caused by sound-driver issues.
Have a close look at your Audio Hardware settings and make sure everything is in order, and maybe choose one of the other choices (e.g. Windows Premier Sound) and see if that cures your lockups.
I've found that optimising your system for PPro CS3 prevents a lot of freezing problems:-
The problem I talk about above did stop after I changed the scratch disks locations. I had them all on the same drive and seperated the files in different drives and folders. It does make a difference.
Thank you all for your comments. I will optimise the system for PPro CS3 and look up the sound card because it still get an error message from time to time.
Thanks for posting your fix. :)
