So, lately I've been experiencing some very annoying youtube lag. I can't enjoy a youtube video without banging my head against the screen. I've looked at multiple threads on many websites but still cannot find a fix. I recently built this computer, it was my first build. I don't think it's a hardware problem since the lag just started happening about a week ago and only on youtube videos. I can play games smoothly, though there are small frame drops every few minutes for a 5-10 seconds.
I have tried every "fix" I could find with no results. I've cleared all cookies and cache, defragged my hard drive, left the html5 trial, disabled all other google chrome plugins, and re-installed my flash player. Does anyone know something that might work?

here goes, the reasom most of the time is u have to much stuff running & loading at start-up many tab open playing music watch video's all those programs loading at start-up take 50% of ur ram so when to all those thing at 1 time u only have 1/2 ur ram & it could a crash or BSOD, the way to shop those programs from loading is to type in run msconfig hit ok then go to the startup tab in there is where u see all programs with a mark in them they load, so u can disable all but u anti virus don't worry in not getting rid of them it's just stopping them from loading, then do a disk clean-up & a defrag that being the file up front for faster access, delete cookies & history weelky clean out all browsers cache's, resart & ur see ur computer will run smoother than before
