Basically I've been having some issues with my internet connection, which strangely seem to occur when I'm viewing YouTube videos.
Each time I watch a video it works fine for a few minutes, then suddenly my internet connection drops. The status on my laptop still says "Connected" but I'm unable to load any pages, on any browser. The only way I'm able to get my internet connection back is to restart the computer.
Any ideas why this might be happening?

I'm using a Wi-Fi connection with a Virgin Media Superhub. Never had any issues with it with speed- and the problem only seems to occur on my laptop and not any other devices, which makes me think it's definitely an issue with my system rather than an ISP or router related problem.
I've tried replacing AVG with Avast and I'll have to see how things go over the next couple of days- hopefully that may have helped.
Hello. I've been having the same exact problem for weeks now. The video just stopped on 9 sec or something like that and so did my connection... but like ventoline proposed, i just turned off AVG WEB PROTECTION function, and it seems that problem is solved.
Hi guys. I've been dealing with this problem for quite awhile, browsed the internet for solutions but there was nothing to be found, just questions, no answers. But it seems that the rumors about AVG causing this problem are true. I updated my AVG 2013 to AVG 2014 and it seems that the problems is solved for now. I'll be testing this in next few days and let you know if the problem is truly solved or not. Cheers.
