Windows 7: Browser has problem downloading some pictures and videos

Browser has problem downloading some pictures and videos

Running Win7 home premium 32 bit with Zone Alarm antivirus. When first rebooted, browser downloads pictures and videos just fine but after running for a couple of hours, some pictures either won't download at all or are scrambled. Video links have similar problem - download never completes. Some youtube videos won't display (again, after the computer has been on for a couple of hours) but thumbnails can be seen. This happens on Firefox, Chrome, and IE and has been happening for several months. On another computer with nearly same hardware and software, everything works just fine no matter how long it has been on so it wouldn't appear to be the ISP. Shockwave Flash is of course involved in all these downloads. Any suggestions?

Anything that effects all browsers would most likely be security suite related or virus related,
I'm not familiar with zonealarm so ?
Try Clean boot,
If zonealarm has browser add-ons/ toolbars..disable them,
