I have been having trouble watching anything that has graphics:playing games, watching a download, or watching a clip. I have freed up all my space by deleting files, and i have done a disk clean-up and defragged and my computer is still on the blink. It even effected my printing. It was running slow, and I was trying to print and the computer printed practically a paragraph at a time, this goes back to my title of "a frame every 30 seconds". I am ready to pull my hair out. I am running with windows XP home edition. I have an Emachine.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning.
