Why does it take a long time for a video to load?

I was just wondering, when I'm on Youtube some of the videos take forever to load and this didn't happened before. Is it Windows 7 that causing this to happen?

Hello johnguillen68, welcome to Seven Forums!


Try closing out all the programs you may have running in the background to see if that makes a difference.
