    Basically what the title suggests. My computer will work fine for varying amounts of time when streaming video (watching movies, skyping, etc) but eventually the computer starts running sluggish until it virtually freezes. This problem doesn't seem to be nearly as bad when I'm streaming movies or tv shows, but when it comes to skyping this problem has been a nightmare. I'm at the point where I can't skype someone for more than 10 minutes before my computer freezes. Has anyone else had this problem? Any help would be awesome.

    I'm connecting through a wireless router. Does that cause any kind of problem?

    But it's freezing my whole computer, not just the individual page or application. Is there any way to fix this? Other people don't seem to have this problem

    In my book " Symantec" has always been a speed issue.
