I am running Windows 32-bit vista, on an Acer laptop. The laptop is less than a year old. It runs on a AMD Turion 64 x2 Mobile Technology processor.
I have 2gb DDR memory.
and run a 512MB NVIDIA Geforce 8400M G TurboCache graphic card.
I was running flash videos and animations just fine a month or so ago. Now all of a sudden my computer has the hardest time running flash. One minute it is running it smoothly, the next the flash video or animation is all skittery and jumpy (even though the flash is fully loaded).
Not only is flash slowing down my computer, but i have recently noticed that when I play video files on my computer, they slow down as well. If I have another window open or have iTunes open (not playing any music) the video starts behaving as if it were in slow-mo!
I have no idea what is happening as the rest of my computer is running just fine.
PS: I have used both SpyBot and Avast antivirus to scan my computer over and over..and it has not helped.
Thanks for your help!
