Videos take forever to buffer.

Probably 90% of what I do on the computer is watch videos. Without videos working properly, I have nothing.

About last week, I noticed that videos basically stopped working. I would have to wait for a period of time to let it buffer, and then watch it. Which I never had to do before. 45 second videos, take atleast two minutes to buffer before I can watch. You can do the math for longer videos.

I even reset my computer back to factory settings in hopes of fixing the problem. But ofcouse, it doesn't work. Now, they just take longer. And I lost everthing.('Would' have been worth it if it fixed the problem)

Please, any ideas on what it could be? I was almost positive setting it back to factory settings would have fixed this.
