Issues after downloading YouTube videos

By mzice13 ·
I noticed that since downloading some YouTube videos that my laptop seems to run slow. I find that loading pages takes longer times to load and sometimes locks up on me. Is there any tests I can run to see if I have issues in that file.
I am using the latest version of FireFox have uninstalled it and reinstalled.
Any help will be greatly appreciated since it seems most of my friends are seeing the same issue and I am the go to person LoL thanks

a couple FLV files on your system.

Generally, you want to clean out temp files (for which you can use an app like CCleaner), make sure you defragment the drive occasionally, scan for malware (MBAM is a good addition to any AV), and make sure you don't have too many programs starting automatically with the system if they are not needed (e.g., the ones that live in the system tray).

Of course, Patch Tuesday was last week, so there <i>may</i> be something with one of the patches or a failed patch install.
