Hello people, I just got a new desktop around a week ago and I've noticed everything that uses flash player is incredibly laggy and slow. This includes youtube, facebook videos, and things like pixlr. I've tried reinstalling adobe flash, but it seems to do nothing. Here's my computers specs, thanks in advance.

Hi SandwichM8 :)

What web browser are you using to watch videos? Does it happens in every web browsers: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, etc.?

A tip for making browsers (chrome or firefox atleast) faster: set flash player so it loads as "click to play"(chrome) or "ask to activate"(firefox). That way only the flash objects you want to load will load, all the others (like flash adverts) will not. This might offset some of the slowness of flash player by ensuring flash player only runs when you need it to run and that it doesn't run at other times. Setting flash players (and all other plugins) like this won't speed up flash player itself, but it will mean it doesn't run when un-necessary so doesn't slow everything else down.
Back on this site, for a while anyway, been so busy the last year.
