Hello, so it all started when I was trying to bring some better performance from a PC game of mine.
What I did:
>Right clicked My Computer
>Clicked Properties
>Clicked Advanced
>Under Performance I clicked Settings
>Under Performance Options I had "Let Windows choose what's best for my computer" selected.
>I changed it to "Adjust for Best Performance"

After this I later went to Youtube and noticed that my video was choppy and that the sound was off. So I went back and changed the settings to what was originally set and I'm still having issues with Youtube and Netflix! It's killing me! Please someone help me if possible!
