Windows 7: Adobe Flash issue with Windows 7?

Adobe Flash issue with Windows 7?

I've looked for possible fixes and causes for the choppy playback, and have found dozens of links with people saying similar things.

I recently bought the Acer Aspire 5532 for schoolwork and internet use, because it was cheaper than most Netbooks with better specs. It came with Windows 7 and is great in almost all respects, except for Flash videos online.

When I download the videos ( for instance) and run them with Windows Media it runs perfect. However streaming them from a site is so painfully slow, and it actually gets worse if I make it full screen.

I have XP on my older, dying laptop and I never had this issue. People have mentioned memory leaks, or problems with Windows 7 and Flash among a host of other things.

Does anyone know of possible fixes for this? I just want to be able to stream the videos without them stopping and jumping around constantly.

No it's not the internet connection, I have another computer with XP and haven't ever had this problem.

Flash + Windows 7 seems to hog ALL the CPU on this computer, and the processor is slower at 1.6ghz but I've run flash videos on worse computers.
