Windows 7: Videos cause browser to freeze

Videos cause browser to freeze

Every time I try to watch videos online my browser says "not responding" within five seconds of trying to load!! I'm not able to watch any video on any website using firefox or internet explorer!! It's frustrating because I don't know much about computers and my laptop is brand new with windows 7. That would make me assume that everything is up to date, right? Any ideas on why this is happening and how to fix it?

and uncheck the box "Enable hardware acceleration"
