It's a 2 year old laptop on a high speed connection getting 4 or 5 out of 5 bars. I've run various scan programs, but now I can't even play a song on youtube without it stalling.
Any ideas?

Yup. By chance are you watching a Vevo sponsored video?

it's happening on chrome, ie, and firefox, tried them all. Windows 7.
I've tried the disabling of the old flash after upgrading, and vice versa. Problem remains.

Shitty flash bug is shitty. Just download what you want and watch it offline.

How much ram do you have? Older rigs seem to have trouble keeping up with the constant and unnecessary updates they do almost weekly. Try clearing your page file if you're low on ram and trying to watch vids while having a couple tabs open. Just google it, otherwise it's time for an upgrade... Planned obsolescence is a batch. Maybe someone else will be able to help.

Ive been coming to these sites for years, had a couple issue many many years ago with the sites themselves.

The really dangerous shit I have gotten has come from hypertextlinks provided in threads.

----that and MSM news websites--no troll.

But as far as the forums? They are pretty inert except for the tracking cookies and some of the java scripts.

I recently tried to watch Adele's 'Rolling in the Deep' video from Vevo. It apparently had copyright issues for it to be viewed in the US.

In other words... It didn't play.

Not a good way get the ball rolling on this Vevo video service.

I never download cuz i'm afraid of the copyright laws. Maybe I'm paranoid.
When I go to sites like movie2k.to to watch, they want me to download, and upgrade my flash player. I went to the real Adobe flash site, and I have the latest version. I don't want to download the crap that simply has the red "F" and no real affiliation with adobe. I get the message every time that I need to "upgrade my flash player", even though I have the latest official version. I figure that's an invitation for viruses and trash, so I don't. I can usually get the program on, but it stalls.

I know how to clear the cache, but how do you clear the page file? Thanks for your replies everyone.

Thanks HK, still reading but here is some relevant passages, trying to comprehend with beerbloat Scream1
The internet layer offers plenty of scope for injection of latency all of its own—and this isn't just a few milliseconds here and there for signals to move around the world. You can get seconds of latency without the packets of data going anywhere.

The culprit here is Moore's Law, the rule of thumb stating that transistor density doubles every 18 months or so. This doubling has the consequence that RAM halves in price—or becomes twice as large—every 18 months. While RAM was once a precious commodity, today it's dirt cheap. As a result, systems that once had just a few kilobytes of RAM are now blessed with copious megabytes.

Normally, this is a good thing. Sometimes, however, it's disastrous. A widespread problem with IP networks tends more to the disastrous end of the spectrum: bufferbloat.

Network traffic tends to be bursty. Click a link on a webpage and you'll do lots of traffic as your browser fetches the new page from the server, but then the connection will be idle for a while as you read the new page. Network infrastructure—routers, network cards, that kind of thing—all has to have a certain amount of buffering to temporarily hold packets before transmitting them to handle this bursty behavior and smooth over some of the peaks. The difficult part is getting those buffers the right size. A lot of the time, they're far, far too big.

That sounds counter-intuitive, since normally when it comes to memory, bigger means better. As a general rule, the network connection you have locally, whether wired or wireless, is a lot faster than your connection to the wider Internet. It's not too unusual to have gigabit local networking with just a megabit upstream bandwidth to the 'Net, a ratio of 1,000:1.

Thanks again to Moore's Law (making it ridiculously cheap to throw in some extra RAM), the DSL modem/router that joins the two networks might have several megabytes of buffer in it. Even a megabyte of buffer is a problem. Imagine you're uploading a 20MB video to YouTube, for example. A megabyte of buffer will fill in about eight milliseconds, because it's on the fast gigabit connection. But a megabyte of buffer will take eight seconds to actually upload to YouTube.

If the only traffic you cared about was your YouTube connection, this wouldn't be a big deal. But it normally isn't. Normally you'll leave that tediously slow upload to churn away in one tab while continuing to look at cat pictures in another tab. Here's where the problem bites you: each request you send for a new cat picture will get in the same buffer, at the back. It will have to wait for the megabyte of traffic in front of it to be uploaded before it can finally get onto the Internet and retrieve the latest Maru. Which means it has to wait eight seconds. Eight seconds in which your browser can do nothing bit twiddle its thumbs.

Eight seconds to load a webpage is bad; it's an utter disaster when you're trying to transmit VoIP voice traffic or Skype video.

I'm just going to say it as I see it. Adobe flash is used as a government computer surveillance backdoor. This is with the collusion of NSA google, When you become "marked" or come across certain youtubes that are posted on government conspiracy honeypots, surveillance backdoors are opened into your OS with the aid of flash. These backdoors end up opening a ton of surveillance connections that have lots of traffic going through them. This traffic ends up pausing/stopping your normal youtube video play.

I do not know how to fix this on a normal Windows machine but I do know that if you use certain very old versions of flash on linux that you can remedy most of this. At least some of the spy/surveillance codes won't have affect and instead of working as they intend just end up crashing flash instead.

Take it for what you will and keep in mind where you are as far as the explanations given.
