AE is generally eclectic with sound.
It doesnt like mp3 files.
Try using .aif, .mov or .wav sound files.

Also when previewing audio or scrubbing the timeline, turn the audio layer quality level checkbox to \ (low).It will save you trouble and crashes.

LOL yup! I found out too... stupid version 7.
Quicktime 7 had caused the problem, i reinstalled 6 and now its fine.
