I use Firefox, any ideas how to speed up buffering.

It could be a problem with my DVD codecs or BUS drivers, but i havnt got a clue what they are. But i know there is something wrong.

Thanks

Why do you think you have a BUS fault?

Buffering of videos depends on the server you are connecting to, the internet speed and your connection speed. These are all variables that can change all the time. When you are buffering a video, there is a large amount of data being transferred so it may take some time.

Do you get any errors? Does the system not behave as you would expect? Do you have any problems showing in Device Manager?

Use Ccleaner to clean up files and the registry on your computer. Also defrag the hard drive. Remove the Unknown Device from Device Manager and see if it will install itself - do you have any devices that don't work?

Yes, my DVD player does not work properly, its like the movie is made up of bug squares. And oddly my sound driver un-installed itself, so i had to download it again.
