Getting So Annoyed - Online Videos Loading Only Partially and Stopping

Any online video: YouTube, news websites, Hulu, anything. The videos will load anywhere between ten seconds and one minutes in, and then just stop. When I'm watching the video and it gets to that point, the video freezes, as if it's trying to buffer more, but it doesn't.

I run Windows XP on my Dell XPS M140 laptop. My main browser is the lastest dev build of Google Chrome, though this problems occurs in my versions of IE and FireFox, as well, so I don't think it is a problem inherent in the browser.

I've tried reinstalling Adobe Flash and I've tried downgrading to different versions of it. One person told me to find "C:\Documents and Settings\[your windows account name]\Application Data\Macromedia\Flash Player" and delete my cookies, but it doesn't seem like I even have that folded. I've even tried Restoring my computer a few weeks back--nothing works!!

Any help is greatly, greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Have you defragmented the 'C' drive lately? If not, do it now as it may help:

Start >> All Programs >> Accessories >> System Tools >> Disk Defragmenter

I regularly defragment. I did it again just now, and still the problem persists.
