YouTube/FaceBook so slow

Hi,

When on YouTube or FaceBook for instance, my connection takes ages to show a video to the point that I simply give up. Sometimes it can be fine but mostly annoyingly slow. I have seen other peoples PCs not have any problem at all.

I am on WinXPMC with IE7 & 8mbps BB. Any ideas?

Cheers,
J

Tiscali & I clear out tifs/cookies etc at least twice a day. All other internet surfing is sufficiently fast. I wondered if it was a Java thing that YouTube/FaceBook use or similar.

Cheers.
J
