I'm new to this forum.

I have this problem:

When I try watching videos streamed online, the videos keep stopping and buffering every few seconds, which is very annoying.

It's been happening on every website and with every online video, for a month now...

The strange thing about it is that I've noticed that when I use a software which hides my ip address, all of a sudden the same online videos play normally without buffering every few seconds, and it seems to me that the browsing becomes faster as well...

I have Windows 7, High Speed Internet (12 Mb/s), Memory 6GB. Therefore, I don't think Internet speed or low resources have anything to do with it...

I have ZoneAlarm firewall, AVG Anti-Virus. I've also scanned the computer with: "Malwarebytes Anti-Malware", "SUPERAntiSpyware" and "stinger". Nothing was found...

I've also deleted temp files, but it didn't help either... All the videos still keep on buffering every few seconds, unless I hide my ip address...

I don't know what else could explain it...

If anyone has an explanation, please help me
