Windows 7: Internet Explorer crashing while watching videos

Internet Explorer crashing while watching videos

Hello,

I installed Windows 7 yesterday. Also installed the newest video drivers. Now, I was trying to watch a youtube video, but after one minute my IE crashed and I had to restart the program and start watching a video all over again. Same problem over and over again. It seems like when I'm trying to watch a movie on youtube or megavideo, etc. IE just cant take it and crashes and restarts itself. But I really can't watch movies when it crashed every single minute or two.

Could anyone please help me?

Thanks,

If you installed new drivers, I do not know what the problem would be. If I were in your position, I would either try a repair install using the Win 7 DVD or better yet just make a Clean reinstall. Did you install by upgrade? Before reinstalling, make a copy of your current system on an external HD, that way, at worst you break even.

Update your Flash Player. Uninstall and re-install it. That might help.

Ehm, it was a clean reinstall. My video card is crap ATI Radeon X1650 and Windows 7 drivers (pretty new, Summer 2009). And not only my videos crash, but also a FPS multiplayer game crashes all the time. The game's name is Wolfenstein: Enemy Territory. It crashes like after 1 or 2 minutes of playing.

Flash player is also the newest version.

You really need more memory..Windows 7 will imediately cache half of your system memory, leaving you with only 500mb of availabe RAM, and less than that if you share it with your video card... 2gb should be an absolute minimum for your system...

Yes, they indeed ain't the best specs, but I don't think that is causing the problems, or is it? Because with all my usual programs running, like MSN, Kaspersky, IE, etc, it doesn't take more then 55% of RAM.

Or are you absolutely sure that no other thing is causing the crashes?

I only recently upped to 2 GB memory from 1 GB. Previously with 1 GB and running all types of stuff on x86 including latest games and video encoding, the system was perfect. I even have "performance" memory now, double the size and I don't notice even a slight difference in performance/stability. Same.

So from what I understand, something else is wrong?

Anyone has any idea what else could cause the problems I'm having?

Thanks
