My new computer that has windows vista home premium on it won't play streaming video like youtube, google videos, etc...It will play around 2 seconds of the video and then stop playing but still have the pause button displayed likie it's still playing. my connection speed is 100mbps. Does anyone know what is wrong? I even wait for it to finish loading and i can fast forward the sliders to another part of the video but then after 2 seconds it stops playin again....

Are you using Internet Explorer? I recommend you install Firefox and use that as your main browser. You have to install the flash plugin first, however, to make youtube videos work. When you go to a webpage with videos, instead of the videos, you'll see a 'you are missing a plugin message'. Click on that to install it.
