    Hi all, wondering if you can give any advice. I got a new iMac recently - I've upgraded it to Lion and generally speaking it seems to run OK. For some reason though, about 1 in 3 times when I try and watch a video on youtube, the imac freezes. Not just the web browser, but the whole computer becomes unresponsive. I can move the cursor around but cannot click on anything - the only thing I can do is switch the power button off. At first I thought it was just on Google Chrome but it's just crashed on Safari too. Any ideas what I can do to solve this?

    Thanks in advance,


    (p.s. sorry if this is the wrong thread to post this in, wasn't sure which was the best).

    If you haven't already, run software update and install 10.7.1 see if that helps.

    Hi, I literally just saw that system update after posting this. Early days but after installing it I went on youtube and it didn't crash, so fingers crossed!
