    Please please someone help.

    I can find all over the internet five years worth of people that cannot watch videos, download, buffer, or even load pages unless they are constantly moving their mouse.

    If I click a video on youtube or anything I have to tickle my mouse pad constantly or video freezes and only audio plays.

    When downloading anything I have to constantly move mouse/cursor or it pauses.

    Although this problem is raised in forum after forum, and question area - not one of them has the answer - and the threads just get closed off. Can anyone actually answer this one?

    Did anyone anywhere ever get this sorted and can they come back and say what they did to resolve it please?

    New laptop, only a few months old - Windows Seven Home Premium.

    Scanned and nothingthere wrong - as did everyone else.

    Please do not close the thread until we get a solution...

    Thank you for reading - Julietstorm.

    P.s. Here is a typical thread of which there are many that has been closed without a resolution being posted. Please don't close this thread, please could tech guy be the first to actually solve this in five years?

    This thread describes the problem too: an example of a closed thread: http://forums.techguy.org/windows-vi...se-moving.html

    Ad blocker?

    Here is another one - I have an adblocker thing, but where it is I do not know.
    I have tried searching for it - cannot find it in downloads, cannot remember if this happened after I added it.

    There is a list of downloads that pops up when we download something but cannot find this programme in there.

    Oh, and at the same time, I used to put my memory card into my laptop and a thing would pop up offering for me to download the images.

    Now and at about the same time, the yellow file thing on my toolbar does not flash, and I have to go into Computer and the Removeable thing and copy and paste the files from it to my Pictures files.

    You won't find a cure for this until your ISP stops throttling & traffic shaping
    99% of cases are down to ISP congestion and the only cure is to use a different ISP that doesn't traffic shape or over sell its capacity
    It is very rare that it actaully is anything on your computer, but can be malware related

    I am on AOL Broadband. Do they sell traffic shaping?
    I have never had this problem before.

    You are not on AOL broadband but on carphone warehouse broadband and yes AOL & carphone warehouse both traffic shape & manage traffic & restrict certain high bandwith sites like youtube etc

    Is it better at off peak times or is it always like it

    follow advice here and post the logs those programs make in your next reply so we see what is running on your computer & whether there is any malware involvement

    Thank you very much. I am really really hoping it is the thing you have said and that when it happens one just has to wait until the ISP stops being stingy with the bandwith, that would account for people not finding a solution and not coming back, because they didn't know.
