Hello. You guys have helped me a few times before so I'm back again! I used to have a lightning fast computer which is relatively new. Lately I've noticed some slowness but most noticeably with streaming video's. They used to be lightning fast and now they are way slower. On YouTube, the whole file would be downloaded while the first 15 seconds have played. Now it has trouble keeping up. I've tried everything in my system tools. I've cleared the temp files, cleaned disk, scanned the registry, scanned for spyware and viruses, tried WinSock. Nothing I do is working. I was hoping someone would be able to help. I have a cable modem which has been real reliable up until now. Hope you can help!

I'd test my speed modem first...make sure i'm getting the bandwith that i'm paying for. If you do get the right speed then i'd test different sites not just youtube. if you dont have any spyware i'd check my processes see what i'm running and why they're running.
