Try downloading movies when your pc is directly connected to your modem. If connection is very much faster then upgrade the firmware of the router.

Good Day

Hi, myself download a movie frm intenet, whenever it opens it automatically connect to internet and showing THIS IS FOR THE SAFTY OF P2P NETWORK FROM VIRUS AND HACKERS JUST CLICK ON ANY ONE ADS BY...

Hi, lets get you some help. Sounds like something very dodgy - almost certainly a virus mechanism, you click on that you click on that and something will be installed on your machine.
You need to delete all the files you have downloaded. P2P downloads are at a very high risk of virus infection.
Once you have deleted the download I would run a full scan on the machine to see what has been installed.

Facebook is being real slow in loading pages and it skips around what is going with the site?it is very irritating many people have had the same problem lately so it' not my computer it's a brandnew...

Facebook has been having problems for days like you describe. It is on their server end, not yours. Typically it means that either too many people are accessing the site at the same time, they don't have enough servers to users, or a problem between the user and their servers, somewhere along the net.

Amazon's 'cloud' network went down the other day taking amazon and many other sites offline for hours. As this problem seemed to show up around the same period of time it could be that facebook is using some of their storage or that the outage caused a clog on the net.

Bottomline is that there really isn't anything much you can do but wait until they get it fixed on their end.

When I go to play a video It will play for a few seconds, stop, than play and it continues to do so.. what do I need to do to fix this problem?

This might be due to a slow internet connection. See, for smooth playback, the part of the movie your computer wants to show has to be downloaded already - it has to be "buffered". If you have a slow internet connection, the speed at which your computer can download a movie might be slower than the actual time it takes to watch what's being downloaded. That's why your movie will stop, wait until another part of it has been buffered, and then recommence.

While downloading videos from youtube I am facing following problems: 1. delay in downloading 2. Even for a 10 minutes video more than 30 minutes is taking Please tell me the easiest way to download...

This can happen for the following reasons:

1. slow internet connection

2. Not enough RAM on your machine

3. too many errors when downloading, can be from a "noisy" connection, time outs etc. This has to do with bad connections etc anywhere between your ISP and your machine.

If you are using Internet Explorer try going under TOOLS, OPTIONS and clear the temp files and the cache. Reboot.

This can also happen if the drive your windows is installed to, typically the "C" drive is too full.

A VPN is a Virtual Private Network. It is used to protect you from getting caught downloading pirated movies and software. It is an Encrypted link with a 256 bit AES seed key which is impossible to decode. Not even your internet service provider can tell what is going in and out of your computer. It costs about 25 dollars a month for a secure server in Amsterdam to be the safest. Every 1 and 0 is totally scrambled and sent to the server in Amsterdam, the downloading of the movies and such takes place there. Then the data is scrambled again and sent back to your computer and once it is safe at home it is then descrambled. Wih one of these VPN bad boys you do not have to worry about those RIAA people sending you threat letters telling you to stop downloading their movies and other copywritted materials. The server in Amsterdam only keeps the logs for three days and it takes 7 months to get a warrant there. If you wish to learn more about these VPNs and how to get everything for free feel free to get in touch with me and I will set you up with the coolest company in the business. These days you can't do anything fun or worth while on the internet without a VPN. For more info contact: and put VPN in the topic. Thanks for reading about VPN's now go out and get yourself one before youget sued by RIAA.

Slow internet

If you have 3mb, you have cable internet right? If so, the cable company cuts your speed off if you download too much over a certain period of time. My cable company confirmed this. I can download all I want from midnight til noon, but after that... They will cut your speed off if you download more than a certain amount. You can call them to find out what the amount is.
