Videos on the comouter running slow

Post by jetseTHIS on Sat 21 Nov 2009, 10:00 am

Hello, I need help and I really don't know much about computers. I bought a refurbished compter from a friend last year and it ran great at first, but now whenever I want to watch videos from the internet or on youtube it's running really really slooooooooooooow. The audio is perfect, but the video is not. I run an anti-malware yesterday and it has been running a little bit better, but it still isn't great. I dont want to invest in a new just yet, can someone please help me!

For YouTube buffering issues, right-click on every video you watch, and click Settings. Then, uncheck Enable Hardware Acceleration.

Then, while in your YouTube account, hover over your name in the top right hand corner and click Account.

Click Playback Setup on the left. Then, fill in the circle on the left of the following phrase: I have a slow connection. Never play higher-quality video.
Click Save Changes.
