    How do I improve quality of videos that I watch on the computer, or say, logging on cbs' site to watch clips of tv programs? They always seem to be somewhat distorted. Would the latest version of direct x help?

    Hiya

    yep, it would. Also, and this is just a maybe as some sites are getting more involved, you might want DivX:

    http://www.microsoft.com/windows/directx/downloads/default.asp

    http://www.divx.com/divx/

    Also, you will want to improve your browser speed:

    Go to Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content. Also, clear the History.

    Content tab, under AutoComplete, clear Forms and Passwords.

    Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Insta on Demand. Untick.
    Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
    Apply and OK

    Go to Find Files and type in cookie. When found, open the folder, and delete all the cookies found. You won't be able to delete the .dat file found.

    For this, go here and get the Spider:

    Go to Run and type MSINFO32
    On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

    Also, go here and download AddAware

    http://www.lavasoftusa.com/

    Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or new.net. If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

    Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.

    Regards
