This is a kinda new laptop, and apparently. I've already updated all the Network & Display drivers.

Yet, most videos are usually not rendering properly or go on a dark green screen.

In the occassion that they do render, they render improperly and have to buffer a lot.


(Yes, I've already disabled hardware acceleration)


THIS NEVER HAPPENED on my other computers, I'm using the same internet and ISP I've used for years now, nothing has changed, but the computer.


Oh, and it's not just videos.

Internet is slightly slower in this computer as well. I can't manage to download anything too!

I can't download executable files either, every single one I've tried to download, gets stuck at 99.9% and doesn't finish, doesn't matter which browser, I've tried all, and I just can't download EXEs.


Actually scratch that

I can't download anything anymore. Not just Exes, but a lot of other things too get stuck and chrome says "Network Error".


What's wrong? 

This laptop didn't do this the first week I used it, why is it doing this now?


Could it be a malware?


Thanks for reading, please assist me.

Nevermind, turned out to be anti-virus problems, that were forbidding these connections, and making everything slower. For anyone with similar problems, try downloading something from trustable source, let's say (Adobe official page) while having your anti-virus off, and see if that's the problem.
