    Clean temp files for your videos.

    "it gets very annoying especially when i try to watch videos gets very laggy and freezes." that means your computer has been infected. try McAfee or AVG or some 30 ~60 days trail antivirus to scan you comeputer.

    You can download a registry cleaner like reg clean pro or tuneup utilities (both paid you can get free ones though) . Defragment your hard disk. Make sure you have 15% had disk space left. if you use up more of your ram your computer can get slower. if all these things dont work your computer just may be too old.
