Internet Problems with Vista

Hi there

I am hoping some clever person will be able to help me?!! I started having internet problems suddenly last December (2011). Everything was working fine, but then about 20th the internet started playing up. I can't watch Youtube videos - they start to play and then just stick. (I have latest version of Java downloaded). I can't check out on Ebay to pay for items, page just sticks and I can't upload photos to ebay, like I could before. I've plugged a friends laptop into my ethernet and been able to surf the net without any problems, so am convinced it is a problem with my tower. I have had it checked out by a computer shop - they agree there is a problem, but can't find it!! It's like the computer can't process information sometimes and just gets in a muddle? I've had it cleaned for viruses (none found) defraged, internet browsing history has been cleared and various other checks the computer shop carried out, but just can't get to the bottom of it. My next step is to reinstall Windows Vista, but am not sure this will solve the problem? Can anyone help me, please. (The computer is only 4 years old).
