    krissytin2, Frustrating-yes-. Is this a new problem - slowly developing or suddenly? Please empty your cache and clear cookies in your internet options in control panel. Clear these each time you close your browser. What system do you use? What browser are you using? Have you added any new programs that are running while you browse and that you don't need? Have you fragmented disk lately? Increase your security settings for your browser and set more restrictions. Get back to me after you try this and please supply more information if you could. We will try some simple solutions and you should be browsing happily soon.

I agree with Bottlenose..
Also there are some very good free anti virus and spyware programs on Ccleaner is another program worth checking out.
Another "trick" is to disable the Virtual Memory. (right click Computer icon, click Properties, in left hand pane click on Advanced System Settings....Advanced, then Performance - Settings - Advanced - Change, un check the Automatically manage paging file size for all drives) Restart and go back and re check and set to system max. If you are on a Vista machine this will help a lot. Not so much on XP, but will gain some.
Much luck to you.

My laptops works perfectly until I want to use the internet. I can connect to the internet fine but internet explorer keeps crashing and runs very slowly. I downloaded Google chrome and the same thing...

It would be great to know how much memory does the laptop has. Usually browsers do take a lot of memory, so if you have limited amount of memory, of course your laptop will slow down and freeze.
I suppose you are running windows.
But you can also monitor and check if the cpu use 100% of it and will also let you know what is causing the cpu to use 100%.
Just search Why is my laptop using 100% cpu

My utube keeps freezing while watching my line dancing videos its stops during the dance.

YouTube freeze can happen due to many reasons. Major reasons are overload on website, simultaneous running of many programs on your computer, Low RAM, Slow internet connection or corrupt windows registry.

For smooth watching of YouTube Videos take following actions:
1. Watch videos at off peak times, if possible

2. Do not run other programs while watching videos. They slow down computer in general by making use of memory.

3. Add RAM on your computer. More RAM will make easy execution of heavy programs on your system.

4. Get better and speedy internet connection. Talk to your ISP in this regard.

5. Regularly clean windows registry. Windows registry is vital place that stores information for important computing functions. A congested or corrupted windows registry makes computer slow that causes YouTube like freezes. For this, get the best registry cleaner reg in out and optimizer. Use it once in a fortnight for fast computing to avoid YouTube freezes and system slow down.

My built-in webcam on Windows Vista is very slow.

Tipically, video streaming over the internet is slower then when you are not connected to the internet, i.e, quickplay. There are many factors to considers such as your internet speed and the other person's speed. It is normal to see lagging when you are having video conferencing with other people, it also freezes momentarily, but, video should go back to normal after awhile, then, freezes again. Also, it depends on the other person's internet speed.

Best luck
