I'm running XP on a 7 year old desktop. My internet works fine, with one exception. Before I upgraded to XP from Win 98SE, my Flash videos played OK. Now they don't.....the video and sound are broken and not good at all. Does XP use that many more system resources to cause this problem?

I'd check the version you have and probably update it if it hasn't been done. Also make sure your current service packs and windows Updates are current

Have you updated the Flash player software?

I'm assuming you are referring to Adobe Flash Player - which was formerly Macromedia Flash.

You can download the latest Adobe Flash Player here:

Try updating the Flash Player, which works fine on all the XP machines i have installed it on.
