Please to be helping my girlfriend's wonky computer?

My girlfriend has a Toshiba Satellite L505D-S5965 laptop with Vista installed. On several video sites (including Youtube, but not ALL video sites), the video will play for perhaps a couple seconds and then freeze. I've tried having her download various Flash patches, uninstall and reinstill flash entirely, download different versions for different browsers...nothing helps.
Now the problem seems to be getting more expansive. This gametracker
app won't load for her beyond 7%. Seems like half the things I try to pass along to her (it's a long-distance relationship) won't work or won't load.
She has a reasonably reliable internet connection, so I don't think it's that. It's like she's missing some....I don't know, important codec or something. I'm not the world's greatest techie myself.
Anyone have any ideas?
