    Whether it's video from YouTube or an email video, the video freezes for a few seconds while the sound goes along smoothly. Letting the video load up completely isn't helping; still freezes. This is a new problem, as I never had the problem until recently. In thinking back, I believe it may have started when I downloaded, and then ran, a registry cleaning program. I may be wrong here, but I believe the problems started then.

    How can I get the videos to run smoothly or check to see if I screwed up the registry?

    Flashplayer is up to date with Google Chrome browser. I tried disabling the firewall to see if that was the problem, and nothing changed.

    Try to do a System Restore to a Point before you fooled around with the Registry Cleaner, if it works. Throw your Registry Cleaner in the GARBAGE.
