I'm going to make two assumptions:
1> you are running windows xp;
2> you have a sound card that is adaquate for your task and a solid pc.

The problem of stuttering results when the pc is trying to do too many 
things with too little work space.  To fix this, go to services in xp and 
disable any services you don't need or at least set them to manual.  There 
are lots of places to find out what the services are and what they do.

Find out what is in your system tray and decide whether or not it is 
something you have to have running.  All the player stuff can go.  Anti 
virus and firewall stuff needs to stay.   any stuff that just sits there so 
you can start a program faster can go.  In some instances, you can right 
click on an item in the systray and find the configuration and fix it there. 
Some times, you'll need to go into the program its self and find its 
preferences/options/configuration controlls and do it there.  The key is to 
manually go through this and set it up so that you don't have to set it up 
again if something causes it to relaunch as it might if you use msconfig or 
use ms config and do a system restore or install another program that 
decides it needs to load something.  Another thing that happens with ms 
config is that if you update the application, the settings that are made 
through ms config are not retained.
