Windows 7: Help, problem watching videos on my laptop.

Help, problem watching videos on my laptop.

I've been experiencing a problem with my laptop that has me baffled. Whenever I watch a video on YouTube or any other website, it will initially play fine for a couple of minutes and then will start to really slow down.

When this happens my whole system slows completely down and I have to ctrl+alt+delete to start the task manager. I've begin to notice the problem also without videos playing. Any help or suggestion would be greatly appreciated.
