Couple of suggestions...
Rerun Autoruns and uncheck:
+ Malwarebytes Anti-Malware (reboot) Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware Malwarebytes Corporation c:\program files\malwarebytes' anti-malware\mbam.exe (do NOT uncheck, if you have paid version)
+ Shockwave Updater Shockwave Helper Adobe Systems, Inc. c:\windows\system32\adobe\shockwave 11\swhelper_1100465.exe

Uninstalling Spybot was already suggested.

Because, you have very little amount of RAM, I'd suggest uninstalling ZoneAlarm firewall and staying with Windows firewall.

Uninstall ASK ToolBar.

Disable JavaQuickStarterService: go to Start > Control Panel > Java > Advanced > Miscellaneous and uncheck the box for Java Quick Starter.

I'm confused.
I recently bought more RAM because my computer only came with 192mbs.
I was told not to buy anymore RAM than 512mbs because Windows couldn't handle that much.
You guys are telling me that I need more?
I'll buy some, but am wondering what to do.
As I mentioned somewhere, I know little about computers.
Also, thank all of you who have been trying to help me.
I appreciate it!

Hello Kaśka :)
XP runs the best with 1GB of RAM.
The best to check, what your computer will take is here: http://www.crucial.com/index.aspx

I have to agree with Ron and Broni about the 1gig of ram, however, I can't say for sure it's causing your problem. When you made changes in msconfig, did it help at all with the performance of your system.

Not really.
I have spent hours searching the web for answers of what may help the youtube videos load.
Lots of people have that problem, and I've tried all of their solutions, but they don't help, and I'm starting to get discouraged.

The system is trying to buffer the video and sound and without enough memory it can't do this correctly.
