Windows 7: Windows 7-- youtube

Windows 7-- youtube

Hello I am having trouble with youtube and other video streaming sites on windows 7, when i had vista on this laptop everything worked out fine, but now after i watch a couple of videos and i click on the next one my browser crashes and i have to restart my computer in order to watch more videos, this happens on every site.

If there is no way to fix this i would just like to know how to run my System recovery discs for windows vista, because when i place them in the dvd drive they do not play automatically and when i open the folder all i can do is view the files, and cannot run the cd.


Thank you.

What browser do you use? Please make sure that you have Flash updated.

If you upgraded it would be better to do a clean install. Try Opera.

Many people experienced a lot of issues when upgrading from Vista to 7 instead of doing a clean install. There is a tutorial right here on the forums, so go check it out and try a clean installation of 7, you shouldn't have anymore problems once you set it up.

And yet another prime exemple that clean installs is ALWAYS better than upgrades...
