About the only fix that would be any major help would be a faster internet connection and maybe a better CPU/video card.

As the link says, yes, cookies & browser cache could be a possibility. But unless that alone corrects the problem, you may need to determine a way to completely download the file without having any buffering issues.

You can certainly remove cookies and history. If you want to do it the easy way download CCleaner freebie, which clears a lot of other trash out too. I doubt it will help your particular problem though - it's usually an internet speed issue (website, your server etc).

teambean, how much RAM do you have? While a dodgy internet connection can certainly be the cause, so can RAM.
When you download something from the net it goes into RAM. If there's not enough to hold all of it, the balance is 'buffered' until more RAM frees up. I'd be suspicious of any less than 500 Meg of RAM. 1 Gig would be even better. A movie demands LOTS of RAM while XP can operate with considerably less.
