I used to work in "hard surface care" (glass cleaners & such)... here's a trick you can try: take some dryer sheets (unused) and wipe your cables with them.
Not only will they smell "spring fresh" but some of the surfactant will rub off on your cable & that surfactant "scavenges" moisture from the air.
Not sure what you mean by "problem" can you be more specific what is wrong?
I will tell that in the winter with furnace running you can pick up a lot of static walking across carpet, and if you touch metal button or knob of audio gear (or any gear) it can sometimes cause problems. Make a habit of touching audio shelf first to discharge static and/or always use remote control operation as much as possible so touching gear is not necessary.
I recall seeing a clever aparatus one Audiogoner made himself (I just don't recall who it was - but I recall finding it among the "tweeks" forum). It's a Brass door nob mounted on a pole, and wired to ground, but it has an inline resistor to eliminate the zap when you touch it.
Now that the heater's fired up this is a real problem.
