why Everytime I play video clips on YouTube I keep having buffering problems like play then stop then play then stop then play then stop continuously.

There may be a few reasons why that happens. If we can assume that your PC has got lots of memory (RAM, like 2 GB or more) and it is set up to use RAM efficiently (i.e. not with a small allocation of virtual memory), and your processor is quite current (i.e. recent CPU that is fast), then the other possible reasons for you to get "buffering" problems are:
1. your (communication) network is not fast enough to keep up with the speed that the video is streaming to your computer 2. your (communication) network is too busy (server other IP users, like in a busy token ring network), to stream the video continuously to your computer 3. the server pushing out the video stream is (too) busy, and hence, there are gaps between sending the video (segments) to your IP address - i.e. your computer 4. your PC is busy doing a few other things, and hence, doesn't have the processing bandwidth to handle the video data volume continuously; the "other things" may or may not necessarily be other applications/processes that you are running, e.g. games, etc. at the same time. For instance, it could be checking to see if your old web pages (in cache) needs refreshing, and / or it is working hard to refresh all your old web pages
If you've cleaned up your PC disk (i.e. removed unnecessary files), optimize your memory allocation/usage, and set your browser option to not automatically update web pages in cache, etc. it may be a network bottleneck. If it happens all the time (when you're watching YouTube) it's likely you'll want to clean up your PC first, then check out the other possibilities)
