For the last 2 weeks, my computer seems to be running slower. Whenever I attempt to play anything from the internet, the videos stall out or stop entirely (this has never occured in the past). In hopes of locating the problem I have run scans using Norton Antivirus, MalwareBytes, YetAnotherCleaner, etc. And, adjusted the quality of playback from High to Low.  I have also uinstalled and re-installed Adobe Flash, Explorer, etc. Yet, the problem persists. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you seeing any other indications on the system that there is a problem?

Thanks for your time Dick. Other than video playback being compromised (Youtube, Huffpost, Facebook, Hulu, Vimeo links, etc.), everything else appears fine.   No site is allowing for smooth plackback. Which is in stark contrast to how well it operated 2 weeks ago

:(

Video playbacks only

What can cause problems? Network speed, buffer size, graphics card overload, possible RAM failure,

 

What happens when you download a video then play it rather than stream it?
