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.
