My laptop crashed and was reloaded from my backup. I lost some programs and am slowly getting back up to speed. It took a dozen tries to finally load Adobe Flash. Now any video from anywhere freezes after playing just a few seconds. A google search finds a lot of similiar problems but no real solutions. Any help would be much appreciated.

I said crashed, actually it became unusable due to "fbi ransomware" and a friend cleaned and reloaded it. I am a techno DUMMY so I really don't know what he did but that was my understanding. It is a Dell Latitude D830. I guess it is getting old by computer standards but it has been dependable and serves my needs.
