i am still having problems with using the touchpad after viewing videos!!  i am continually having to restart the computer...i tried all that was suggested before and there is still no correction!! could this signal a larger problem? i use firefox and i do notice other things like after a period of idle... the system is slow to pick up!!  i get many "not responding" messages...i usually have to restart the computer...to "fix" that problem as well!!  i have the latest updates and everything for firefox...i am not sure what the solution is/could be?!??!

What happens when you use Internet Explorer to view the on-line videos?
