Specs: Windows 7, 250
I have an Acer Aspire, running windows 7, I have 2 questions, the first, when I am watching videos off of any web page the flash players are always buffering through any of the videos, how can I fix this? I just added some more memory to my computer, I now have 4 gb, I thought it would help with my computer being so slow and sluggish, however, the problem is, if I am on one web page and want to go to another when the next page pops up and I want to click on something or want to scroll with the side bar I have to wait for 12-15 seconds before I can click on anything, this is really annoying to me, can anyone out there help me fix these issues, thank you

What's your Internet connection like? What bandwidth are you getting?

Both the symptoms you describe can be caused by a slow Internet.

Some details of the hardware you are using would help.

Is that Aspire a netbook by any chance?

If you're currently using Internet Explorer, try Firefox or Chrome. On slower hardware, both are noticeably faster than IE10.

As for loading and watching videos when using Firefox, I downloaded RealPlayer. That solved my problem. If you do this, you don't have to accept Cloud are anything else. Just be careful to click decline - skip or whatever as needed. I did have to give my email address and create a password. My Internet Videos load fast now.
Some of what I suggest may be written above. Start - Control Panel - Internet Options - Browseing History - Settings - View - Select All - Delete. Some cookies are good but to many are not good.
Do you have Run on your Start Menu ? Right click Start - Properties - Customize - Put a check mark for Run - Click OK - Apply - Ok
Now to use Run - Start - Run - type - %temp% - OK - New page Select All - Delete.
You will probably have to click skip a few times when using windows 7. I've done this many times.
Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - Disk Cleanup - OK - Agree to delete and click OK.
Start - Computer - Right click Drive C - Properties - at the top - Tools -
Defragment nowv - Analyze - when it finishes Defragment.
Start - Control Panel - Program and Features - Look for and Uninstall Toolbars that you don't need. Their hard to keep off of your computer. If you have a Favorite Home Page than after going their it's address will be at the top and a little Icon will be at the left end. Put your pointer on it and holding down on your left click drag it to your desktop. This will require that you have resized your screen to show your desktop to make room to drop the new Icon. Use this Icon to go to your favorite Home Page.
As others have written use anti virus and keep it updated.
