My windows xp has been tooling along just fine for my simple needs and I don't know if the problem is related to it but SUDDENLY you tube videos freeze. They play for about 10 seconds and stop. I have Firefox and also tried Opera but no dice. Again this just recently developed. I have not made any changes to my system. Any ideas? Please try to use laymans terms as best you can. I'm not into computer lingo. LOL.
