Online videos can be in a number of formats requiring Flash, Windows Media Player, Quicktime, etc, so it's important to know what videos this is happening with. It could also be a problem with the video or the site freezing in the middle of playing due to high demand.

Let us know.

They're all Flash-based...

All three of those video sources use Flash-based media players, so unless you're on a low-speed connection that's most likely the culprit. I'd suggest uninstalling and reinstalling Flash Player 9 and then clicking here to test their operation.

Let us know how it goes.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
