Windows 7: PC Freezes Only On Youtube

PC Freezes Only On Youtube

Hi!
Almost a week I have this really annoying problem.
I use firefox and every time I'm trying to watch a video on youtube seconds later while the video is playing, the image freezes, the sound continuines to play for a second and then the cursor becomes bigger/smaller and there's an awkward sound like ''grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr''
I've searched the Internet for solution and I did everything.
I've reinstalled firefox and flash player, updated every single driver, disabled the antivirus, cleaned the registry, cleaned the cookies and the history, checked the temperature (normal values), checked the event log but nothing.

Note: The day that I've noticed that crash on youtube I installed the latest graphics card driver and the Firefox 4.01 Beta.

Can you do a system restore to a point before you started having this problem?? Does this happen when you use a different browser??

Make sure that you have the current version of Flash Player. Go to filehippo.com to get download. Be sure to get the one for non-IE which works for Firefox.
