Have you been throttled?

The reason video/audio on the web is stalling is due to the internet connection, not the actual laptop usually

Try updating the GFX card drivers

Try using Firefox instead of IE and see if that makes a difference with AV playback and also swap out AVG for Avast and you should see a small difference in speed, not to mention better security.
