Question

C/Net video how to's

Some of them seem to do buffering and others OK, and some seem like chopped. I have the latest Flash player and have no problem watching video's on other sites, as I do here..ie..the review video area....why?

Clarification Request
Given your past troubles.

Did you ever find out what was giving your PC so much trouble? You had some dozen or more posts but it was never clear why your PC had so many issues.

Good to know.

You bring up a good new question. That is, how do folk find today's PCs? Did the makers and Microsoft blow it even after decades? That is, here you are with a year or more of trouble and your PC is still in trouble.

Have you tried one of those Apple computers?

The issue I had in the past were the typical nuisances and have been overcome...What does that have to do about my OP? I just watched a load of youtube videos and each one was viewed smoothly..but like I said it is not that way while viewing some 'reviews' in C/Net.

You wrote no to my question.

"Did you ever find out what was giving your PC so much trouble? "

Your answer was "NO" so that means you should have continued issues like your new question.

Until you get to the bottom of why you are having these issues, you will continue to seek help on issue after issue.

You are a great example of how Microsoft needs to do a lot better. Or where folk should never put anything on their PC and just do a factory restore when it's busted.

Please, if you do not have the temperament to respond to my so called problems, then ignore them..you seem to be the only one in this forum among the other moderators that answer..be easy on yourself, relax and let others reply, or just ignore my posts, cause there may possibly be more in the future, after all this is a free forum, and not all of us are geeks.

My thought is the original causes are still there.

Do the problems vanish if you perform a factory restore? For some owners that's the only fix because as you wrote, folk are not geeks (few are, I'm not one either!) and to ask folk to perform a 34 step procedure is asking a lot.

This is why I asked if you found what is causing these issues.

For example one member was getting movies with torrents. They had the oddest issues but they didn't reveal this till much later. Once we uninstalled the torrent and the pests and freed up some disc space the machine worked.

But as you can imagine they didn't learn from the experience and within a month were posting with a new issue. Turns out the same causes and this time it was a rootkit. They didn't want to buy the tool that fixes that so they had to restore to the factory install.

Your posts are very interesting to me as you are like many others and I'd like to see how you find a solution. I have a solution to all those issues but fear you were looking for something else.
