    I like to view music videos on a site called Launch.com. I have a high-speed cable connection (advertised at 500 kbs). Lately, when I try to view videos at the highest speed available (the site lets you stream at various speeds), there are pauses in the video, no video at all and sometimes breaks and pauses in the audio as well. Here are my questions:

    Are there problems with Launch.com? Is their server gagging trying to keep up with the traffic? (remember--this used to work just fine until a month or two ago).

    Is there something I can change in IE6.0 to change the buffering (or is it cache) for streaming? If so, how?

    You've got something choking back your system...Something interfering.

    Have you updated your virus scanner & ran it lately?

    Also have you scanned for spyware?

    I recommend highly scanning at Housecalls. Its online, free & efficient.... For Virus, Worms & Trojans
    Click Here!

    and for spyware I recommend Ad-Aware.

    Please do these things & make sure they are taken care of before we go any farther.
