Try to examine your system: how much memory do you have installed? how many programs are running or installed? what player are you using? are the enhancements of the player active? these are just some of the things you will have to consider in system with slow performance. you can initially do the following: click start, click run, type msconfig on run window, select startup tab, click disable all, then apply and ok or close whichever is available. also try to unistall unneccessary programs, delete temporay internet files and other files not worth keeping.

Its causing my computer to run extremely slow. When I am trying to watch videos and so forth, it continuously pauses my videos. I did not have this problem until I installed Norton on my latop

This is normal for norton. Nortons is an extremely hungry (resource wise) antivirus solution for windows. Try disabling it when you want to watch videos or play games other than that you could try to go with one a little less hungry like CA or TREND.

I am not able to watch videos in youtube pls assist.i even have the flash i need some other software to play it.i even tried in other websites but i am not able to play any videos in any website

Does Youtube tell you that you need Flash Player or give you some kind of other error? What browser are you using? Internet Explorer or something else?
I would just go to and click on the Flash Player logo and download it again. Make sure it installs successfully. Then go to Youtube and test.

Hope this helps! If so please leave a rating!

Everytime i try to watch a video download the video keeps pausing about every 20 seconds. what can i do to fix it

The pause is to allow more of the video to be downloaded. The speed of your connection is the problem. You need a higher speed download connection (Increased bandwidth) which may cost you more. The other option is to fully download the video and then view it.
