Videos won't play until fully buffered

Sorry if this is in the wrong section...I'm new to this.

Recently I have had the issue that whenever I try to watch a video through Youtube or pretty much anything else for that matter the video will not play until fully buffered. Now for small video's <2min it's not really that much of a problem. But for some music videos and anything over 5min it can take ages to start playing and half the time it never does start.
During this I cannot close the window down. I click on the X in the top corner but nothing happens. I have to go into task manager and cancel the page that way which causes any other web pages I have open to close aswell for some reason.

I have had a look at various other places online and they suggested clearing my temp internet folders and history, which I do anyway. Also making sure that I have the latest Flash version....which I have done. Neither helps.

I am at a loss now.

I have windows XP and Internet Explorer. I also have quite a fast broadband connection so taht doesn't seem to be the problem. I have scanned my laptop for visuses and it doens't pick up anything.

Any help you can give will be appreciated.

Thank You

Make sure no one else is using your bandwidth. You might have an intruder.
