After a hard day at work, many people want to sit in front of a computer and watch their favorite movie. Today, the Internet offers a huge number of videos for every taste. But for some reason, unfortunately, the image takes a long time to load. What could be the reason?
Slow loading of video on the computer forces you to look for the reasons for this "behavior" and take some preventive actions to avoid serious damage to the system. Slow downloads can occur for several reasons.
Download speed may slow down due to gradual "pollution" of the operating system. The normal operating mode for a computer is the installation and removal of various programs by the user. Each installed program makes an entry in the system list. These records are not always removed correctly when the program is removed, which leads to conflicts in system work. The more installed programs are running at the same time, the more often conflicts leading to slower video downloads. To fix this problem, you can use the CCleaner program, which will restore the correctness of entries in the system registry.
It may be that while downloading a video, a program is being downloaded. Many programs are installed with an "autoload" feature to start when a specific command is executed. Quite often on the Internet, along with the start of the video download, a window with the content of advertisements or a network game starts to load. It is necessary to immediately close the extra window, as a result of which the download speed should increase.
The reason for the slow loading of videos can be (which is quite common) the presence of viruses or spyware. A virus in its "black" business takes away a significant part of the computer's power, which naturally affects the download speed. Viruses are removed by special anti-virus programs (downloaded from the Internet or installed from an additional storage medium). Virus cleaning can also cause slow downloads. Sometimes, to remove viruses, you need to reinstall the system and all working programs.
It is no secret that the anti-virus program "Kaspersky" scans every file entering from the Internet very carefully. Therefore, the duration of any download from the Internet increases, and the computer works with an apparent "slowdown". It is worth trying to install a different antivirus program and restart your computer.
