Youtube Buffering is so slow


There could be a wide variety of reasons for slow buffering times.
1) Your area could have alot of people on youtube at the same time, causing the local servers to be overloaded.
2) You could have slow internet capabilities with your current internet service provider.
3) You may be using an out-dated web browser, or have too many plug-ins installed.
4) You may not have sufficient ram on your computer.
I would recommend using a browser such as the latest version of google chrome for fast speeds watching flash, and you could try certain software to speed up your video watching speeds, such as http://www.videoaccelerator.com/. And you may want to check out that your internet service provider is giving you good download speeds.
I hope that helps!

i want to know how to uninstall ghost buster and get every bit of it off?


Try Ashampoo Uninstaller or similar software that gets off every bit of unwanted software. Use function "Install new applications". It asks for setup.exe, install.exe or similar executable file, that runs GhostSurf installer. Point to it. After all the installations completes, "Ashampoo Uninstaller" logs the installation. Now uninstall the unwanted program using "Uninstall logged programs". That's it! Good Luck!
