Computer Freezes when watching Youtube Videos or Films...

Comp freezes everytime I watch a video then it disconnects from the internet and I have to shut it off manually and turn it back on.

Upgraded both web browsers (Google/Firefox) already too. What could be the problem.

What OS are you using?

Most such stuff is because of your Display Cards driver. You might be using an old driver not updated one, or you're using the OS's standard driver which won't give you the full capabilities of your system.

Also, upgrade your adobe-flash that is used to show you the flash videos in the browsers themselves.

If you need further help, don't hesitate to ask.

It could be your flashplayer. That's one of the worst softwares around in decades. 16 years of regular new error updates. So you could give it a try to update your flashplayer or try to restore your computer to a restore point from a time when it still worked.

And prior to that you could give Opera a try. As far as I know and have experienced, it's usually more stable than Firefox and Chrome. You can try the portable version which doesn't install the programm deep in your system.

Windows Vista. It's quite buggy, but it came with the computer. On Google it says it's already updated. What's the next step here...upgrade the driver.

Might try this...
