It Doesn't Take Long For Animated Ads, But For Other Videos ...

When I have to wait 60 to 120 seconds for my Page to load, the Ad's Animation is playing just fine for those 10 to 15 seconds. But for me to get a YouTube or some Web Site Video, it takes me 5 or 6 minutes = 300 to 360 seconds of downloading for me to see 15 seconds of Video.

What does that say about the software in my computer? Ads are more important, then what is important to me from information Videos. Doesn't it?

If you are running windows xp or vista, unplug the power for a couple of minutes.<br />

Basically your computer has limited short term memory and some memory is filled with processes that stay on as long as the power is connected to your computer. However, this process might duplicate itself over time due to some mistakes in the programming. This is called a memory leak.<br />
<br />
By unplugging your computer for a few minutes, the short term memory loses power and resets.<br />
<br />
There might be any number of causes that slow down your computer. It's best to have someone who knows his stuff take a look at it. There could be spy-ware, unnecessary programs running in the background, lack of computer memory or it could just be an old computer.<br />

Memory size DOUBLES every 1.5 years, so after 5 years a computer would be like 80 years old in human years.
