I cannot run streaming videos like Youtube or CBS or NBC videos. Videos on website banners will run. Problem started with videos buffering longer and showing video shorter, escalated to completely not showing the video (this happened about 5 days ago). Just before the video shut down, my entire computer froze up 3 times. After complete cool down, I was able to boot up and have had no other problems. Using Windows XP, Office Professional 2003. Dell Latitude E6500 about 18 months old. Both Firefox and Explorer act the same. There is no problem with internet speed or connection. Have uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe Flash, Adobe Shockwave and made sure Java is updated. Have cleaned cache completely (several times). Use TrendMicro virus protection, regularly run RegCure which picks up 2-3 errors every few days. When the problem started, I installed Registryfix and it cleaned many errors. Installed Malwarebytes, it showed 2 problems: Adware.GameVance registry key infection and registryfix.exe (rogue.installer) file infection. Both were successfully cleaned. Registryfix has assured me it has no rogue installer and that this reading is a false one. I have researched Adware.GameVance and it is not a virus but an ad selection program. Tried setting hardware acceleration to none (no change). Made sure Quicktime and MS media player are not default video players. Recently ran disk defrag and disk cleanup. All windows and office updates are current. Diagostics on the computer hardware (F12 at startup) show no problems. Ran HiJackThis, and have attached the file here for review. Can someone let me know if there is something in this file that can be identified with this problem? Should I take any/all of this off? Any other suggestions? Thanks.
