    I'm not sure if this is the right thread to post on but here it goes. All of a sudden I can't watch videos (like from youtube) without the page refreshing every 3 seconds or so--very annoying, running XP, never had this happen before, if anyone has an idea it would be greatly appreciated!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Is this refreshing happening only while watching videos?

    Does it only happen in Internet Explorer?

    Go start, programs accessories, system tools and find IE No add-ons open it from there How is it now please.
    If still no good - in IE - delete browsing history - either tools or safety dpending on edition of IE - be aware of saved passwords deletion check box.

    If still no good - check updates on flash player and other enhancements etc.

    If still no good - and on IE7 download IE8.

    If still no good and you sign in to Utube as member, then try as just general access.

    If still no good - report as to ANY improvement.

    NOTE after each step enter IE normally and if no good enter back on NO add-ons.
