How to repair IE8? Or is it another problem?

I have a PC that is 2 mths old, it connects wirelessly to a Netgear DG834GT Router. Downstairs I have a laptop which also has IE8 and connects to the same router.
If you try to watch Youtube upstairs the stream is continually interrupted, playing facebook games results in the page (and often all of IE8) freezing.
I'm attempting to pinpoint the problem on the PC (the laptop seems ok)
I would like to reinstall IE8 to make sure my version isn't corrupted (I have tried a reset and that works very briefly) how do I go about reinstalling IE8?
Thanks

Tools.Internet Options.Advanced and press reset.
This restores IE8 to its original state.
You will have to enable your Add-ons again when you have finished.

Thanks will try the flash player again- have reset a number of times, will get back to you, thank-you!
