Has anyone ever heard of this virus? I don't know the name of it. But, when watching videos, the video will speed up to the end right when the video starts. It would then freeze the video. It won't start again. It will also stop the video from going into full screen mode. Then, the icons on the desktop, and the browser would freeze, and not open when clicked. My antivirus (Kaspersky) doesn't recognize it, and I have to re-boot the computer or run the anti-virus to stop it for a while. It happens at least once a week and the most 4 or 5 times a week. I've reset my computer twice and the last time was yesterday. And the virus is still there. Does anyone recognize this virus? And/or know how to fix it? Thank you.

This is unlikely to be a virus.

What OS are you using and what software are you using to view the vide

Are these YouTube Videos? or what?

Kaspersky strikes again. Use the removal tool then reboot. If all OK reinstall with your licence if you have to.

Loads of removal tools here, pick your choice.

Sorry wee eddie, I clicked the wrong button, if you have any suggestions I would appreciate it.

  rdave13 01:37 21 Jan 2017

Just suggested one but you ignored. Fair enough. Flash player is being phased out so it depends on your browser settings and AV settings. Have a good day.

I'm on my phone at the moment but, if I remember rightly, there is a free program called VLC which is currently the "Must have" App for viewing movies

This is where I get VLC from VLC Media Player

I just downloaded it. Thanks. I hope it works:-)
