Does streaming shows on my laptop.....?

slow it down? Does it actually download the show? My laptop is 6 months old but has slowed down alot. It takes forever to buffer now. Ive done the basic clean up. It has Windows 7. Is there anything else thats fairly easy to understand that I can do to make it faster? thanks

    I hard reset my wireless router back to factory settings every year.

    New passwords new everything.

    your buffer speed is directly realated to your actual internet connection, perhaps you have uninvited guests in your wireless router sucking up bandwidth?

    Do you have lots of downloads uploads/p2p running at the same time?
