  See I've heard about the sound files a long while before and to never open them.  So I have never even gone into the sound folder at all, as I never had any reason to do so. 

  This means they should be untouched unless the game is doing something to them.  If I set the sound folder to Read-Only will that possibly help?   

  Again, never touched the sound files and never had any interest in playing any of them outside the game either...

if you didn't touch them then there should be no problem with sound files and that means problem must be somewhere else.
does lockup happen in certain maps?

  No I've never even looked at the sounds files before.  I've also heard about the corruption if you even try to open it.  Plus I've never had any need to listen to any of them anyways.

  With that should I still set them all to Read-Only?  Or just the folder?  Or both?

If you have no intention to open them with anything outside the game, it isn't necessary. My suggestion was only a precaution for people who want to listen to the music outside the game.

I would also suggest to prompt the installer on doing a backup archive (rar or zip) of those files (or disabling winzozz media player :rofl:), but I don't know if it's possible (or worth the effort....)

However I have vlc, I can run a test if it does the same damages.

  Well it seems to be working fine with Antitribu Mod right now, about to finish Santa Monica and haven't had it happen once.  Don't know if I encountered it that early last time at all.

  Saves of course are faster that I noticed, but could just be because I've recently started out.  Wonder if maybe it has something to do with the auto-saves between areas and that's where it starts hanging up on.  If only there was a way to test that by disabling Auto-Save?

  Will do a Antitribu Mod play through and document it more with more specifics when it happens if it does...

Update:  Just started happening again after returning from the Ocean Hotel Quest and entering into the Asylum.  Now it's doing it as much as the last time without the Antitribu Mod.  So that eliminates that theory that it was only during that one run through...
