Windows 7: Streaming Video and downloads freezes

I agree about uninstalling McAfee, I have provided you with the Removal Tool link. Bonjour can be Uninstalled by following this guide:

Ok, I uninstalled both McAfee programs, rebooted, but still have the same problems. Did I have these problems from day one? Well, somewhat. I built this PC June 24, 2011, and of course you have tons of downloads to update everything and all the drivers. On the Windows Update program, it would often freeze on downloads. Several times I had to run the update utility to fix download problems, then it would finish the download - but only to do it again and again. Sometimes when a download stops, I can pause it, then restart, and it will continue downloading. Sometimes I'd do that several times to get the entire download. So, yes this has been occurring from day one. My computers all have different NIC. The Network card is built in this ASUS mobo. As far as I know, everything is up-to-date, programs, drivers and all. I downloaded the latest drivers for mobo and network card directly from ASUS.

I don't know if it might help, it won't harm to give it a try to change your LAN settings to Public DNS. Pls. change it back to the original setting if it didn't work.

Pls. let us know.

FINALLY SOLVED! I downloaded the latest network driver from Realtek, (although I had a hard time downloading it with this problem), uninstalled the current network adapter driver, installed the Realtek driver and all the problems seem to be gone. I will say, this is confusing, because when I finished the PC build last month, I went to ASUS web site and downloaded the latest drivers for THEIR ASUS mobo, which included drivers for the the Realtek network adapter integrated into the mobo. Since ASUS built it, I would have thought they would have had the latest - but not so. The ASUS network driver for their own mobo, caused all my problems. To everyone, thank you for helping me solve this. Have a blessed day!
