Sorry but it's a common issue and folk don't seem interested in why this is.
Everytime I watch a video, whether it is on IE or Chrome, my computer freezes for about 4 minutes, and then resumes, but will keep freezing when I continue to watch a video. I have plenty of free space on my computer (183 free GB). It isn't a RAM issue either I don't believe. Can anyone help me? I have searched a ton of forums but can't find an answer. Didn't always be like this, started about a month ago.
