You tube locking up my broadband.

I can watch many You tube videos but occasionally the video stops and then I cannot open another web page nor download E-Mail. Re booting my P.C. returns everything to normal? I tried just shutting down those programmes but that does not cure the problem I am on XP, Firefox and Outlook Express and BT Infinity broadband.

How old is the PC? It might be that the CPU needs a lot of time running YouTube when your security program is updating and installing. It might seem to be doing nothing at the time but leave it for half an hour or so to see if back to normal. Under powered possiby.

Hello rdave13,

certainly not a new model or particularly high specification, but this is a random occurrence and only happens with You Tube. Other video clips I watch do not do it? I will try leaving it for a while and see what happens?
