You could have a virus or trojan in your temp files, start your pc in safe mode, usually tap f8 when starting, try to run internet options
and delete all temp and cookies. I would go to AVIRA and run there online anti-virus scanner. they are the top anti-virus software on the planet,next is Kaspersky then Eset Nod 32.

    With all the problems I am hearing,I had to add to this. But I should have told you,,, install Firefox, try it, it is safer, but not for everyone and that is because windows is different on every PC.
    A note-you can open internet options with control panel- when you do, it uses rundll32.exe to run and it is named internet properties.

    You can open internet options from IE,under tools. and it is called internet options, but it does not use rundll.exe,
    Now, internet options and internet properties are one in the same.

    One thing you can do if internet options do not start, open task mgr and rt click on rundll32.exe and pick end task, look to see if more than one is running and close them all.

    Now if you still have a problem but do not feel good about going into your registry, do not read on.

    Try this-expand- Hkey_current_user
    expand-software
    expand-policies
    expand-microsoft
    expand-internet explorer
    rt click on-restrictions
    now in the right field look for- nobrowseroptions -rt click on it and delete this from window. If it is not there you are going to-

    expand- Hkey_local_machine
    expand-software
    expand-policies
    expand-microsoft
    expand-internet explorer
    rt click on restrictions
    now look in the right field, if you see nobrowseroptions, rt click on it and delete it.

    To refresh your memory, fist check for malware (virus), go to F-Secure and run there online scanner. Try ending the rundll32.exe
    in task mgr, and try registry delete key.

    Now, if none of this works, either install Firefox, or uninstall IE8,
    and run IE7.

    I know I said to run F-Secure,it is a great online scanner,but I will list the top anti-virus from # 1 and so on. This is from the top industry testing,it is not my opinion, or my own testing. But I do have the same findings.

    # 1- G-Data
    Avira
    Kaspersky
    Nod32-eset
    Norton 2009
    Avast
    F-Secure
    Now some of these have a free version,but you must download it
    to run them.

    What ever you run,even if you don't like what I say, please do not
    run AVG, it is a very poor software.

Why does my internet freeze? what can I do


If your computer as a whole is freezing, then you have to check for viruses / malware.
But, if it is only your internet that freezes up, then try resetting your Internet Explorer.
I am presuming that you are using Internet Explorer 7 or 8, as your browser.
To reset Internet Explorer (IE) :-
1. Open Internet Explorer .
2. Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.
3. In Delete Browsing History, click Delete All.
4. Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons
check box, and then click OK.
5. Switch to the Security tab.
6. Click Reset all zones to default level, and then click OK.
7. On the Advanced tab, click Reset.
8. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
9. When Internet Explorer finishes restoring the default settings, click
Close, and then click OK .
10. Uncheck Enable third-party browser extensions option in the Settings box
11. Close Internet Explorer . The changes take effect the next time that
you open Internet Explorer .
Try to reset IE, as explained above.
Even after resetting IE, if IE still freezes, then there may be some viruses / malware on your computer.

Every time I download a video it stops every few seconds


The cause of your problem is simple: your "cache"
memory & "temporary internet files" are nearly full.
This is especially true if you've been watching lots
of videos or playing a lot of games/music.

If you are experiencing either: A) slugglish loading
and buffering, B) "choppy" videos which frequently
start/stop/start/stop, C) the YouTube dotted circle
looking like it might spin for ever, or D) videos that
will sometimes come to a sudden "stop" or freeze,
that is often a sign that your cache/memory is full
and cannot take anymore.

Exit out of YouTube (but not your browser) and do
one of the steps below. Afterwards, shutdown and
reboot. Not only will this "free up" your computer's
memory, everything will be "fresh", and load faster:

Internet Explorer 6:
→ Tools → Internet Options
→ Delete Cookies → OK
→ Delete Files → OK
→ Clear History → Yes
→ OK

Internet Explorer 7:
→ Tools → Internet Options → Delete...
→ Delete files → Yes
→ Delete cookies → OK
→ Delete history → OK
→ Close (browsing history window)
→ OK

Internet Explorer 8:
→ Tools → Delete Browsing History
[. ] Preserve Favorites (leave blank)
[x] Temporary Internet files
[x] Cookies
[x] History
→ Delete

Mozilla Firefox 3:
→ Tools → Clear Private Data
[x] Browsing History
[x] Download History
[x] Saved Form and Search History
[x] Cache
[x] Cookies
→ Clear Private Data Now
Google Chrome:
→ Tools (wrench) → Clear browsing data...
[x] Clear browsing history
[x] Clear download history
[x] Empty the cache
[x] Delete cookies
Clear data from this period: → Everything
→ Clear Browsing Data

Please rate me if this solution works for you

Thanks......Have a great time.

Facebook supports IE 7, and firefox so it is not internet explorer 7
