YouTube videos lag for 2 seconds every 30 seconds or so?

that's what's happening. I have XP with 4G ram, radeon hd 6850, dual core processer intel.

Really, I can't think of any reason why this should be happening. It really ruins videos to have this happen. Any ideas?

Are you letting the video buffer sufficiently?

Maybe other programs are pulling it down...Anything that's using the net or trying to use the net.

For example: An Anti-Virus that quickly scans the page of everything, before it lets you carry on..That's what Avast web shield does, and sometimes it can get stuck on videos, creating a lag.
