Re: regarding whats running on my comp
A good idea is to get Spybot - Search & Destroy and AdAware Free. Run these once a week, and do a disk defragment on all hard drives about once every 3 months. Get someone to help you edit the startup list on the msconfig command (open the "Run" box and type "msconfig", then hit enter).
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repair professionals here in the US. click here to Talk to a Technician (only for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need. Goodluck!

This might be a memory problem or a slower processor on your computer. Try closing down any running software on your computer, whilst watching the video. You can check the CPU of your computer to see if it's running at max while on YouTube.
Another issue is your download speed, use one of the online speed testers to see if your speed is what it should be.
Also make certain your Adobe Flash Player is up to date.
There is something called ADBLOCK, this stops adverts showing on your computer from sites and gets shut of the adds on YouTube. You have to download it for each browser type you use, but it is free. Certain sites do ask you to remove this, as they rely on adverts to run. But you can do this as an exception rather than for all sites.
It sounds like a heat issue. There might be a thermal switch that cuts power at a certain temp. A simple solution to try is to place a fan so it blows across the main area or under the main area. I have had that work a couple of times. If your ok with taking things apart you could also pull the main cover off(usually a couple of screws) and clean the dust out with a can of air and vacuum. Make sure the unit is unplugged befor you start and try not to touch any boards because of static electricity which can fry electronics.

Do not use that adapter....it is bad, go out and get one that is putting out the correct voltage. It is running slower and uncorrectly because it is no longer getting the correct and consistant voltage that it needs. If you continue to use that particular adapter, you will fry your motherboard and have to replace both. Spend the bucks and get a correct one, look on the bottom of the computer and it will tell you the correct voltage the unit runs at.
If some other computers are working so the problem here is with the wireless adapter on that computer, the best thing that you can do here is to update the driver of the wireless adapter or you can also uninstall and reinstall it to correct the problem..........
its nothing to do with your router, there is a "fair usage policy" which has now been taken up by 98% of ISP's this means at certain times of the day the download speed is capped to cope with demand over the web, its nothing to worry about, just something we have to put up with
