    I have Vista, my PC has Pentium dual 2.6, 2Gb Ram and 320 Gb HD, plus Intel integrated sound and graphics cards.
    Since some time ago I have been experiencing troubles when watching videos either on youtube or any other on-line streaming sites. The videos download quickly, the strip showing progress shows they are downloaded all the way through, however, the picture is not flowing evenly. Every few seconds there is like an half-second freeze. The sound is flawless, the only trouble is the vision.
    It looks like skipping some short moments, sometimes it literally looks like I was watching some old mute movies, where the picture was like a sequence of pictures.
    I cleared the cache, deleted temporary internet files, reinstalled Firefox, reinstalled Adobe macromedia, checked internet connection, nothing works.
    When I check task manager it shows that the processor and ram is not fully used, so it looks like the machine is not overloaded.
    What should i do?
