I recently installed the Windows 8.1 update from the store onto a new Asus laptop running a Pentium dual-core 1.5Ghz with 4GB RAM. Overall, the OS ran perfectly and I was really pleased to see the integrated Bing search and return of the start button.
Unfortunately, internet videos such as Youtube and Lovefilm were so juddery and slow they were pretty much unwatchable. I tried all the suggested resets, setting changes and update checks in Internet Explorer and downloaded Firefox and Chrome, but sadly these suffered from the same problem.
Has anyone else encountered this issue? Does anyone know if it's my laptop spec that's too stretched by 8.1? I watch a lot of Youtube and, as this was the worst performing site, I've now reset my machine to Windows 8 and everything is super fast again.
I'd really appreciate any advice or suggestions from others who may have had the same or similar issues!
