    adobe player - windows 8.1 - doesn't start/slow

    Adobe Player 15 ( fresh install )

    Was loading a machine for a new client and adobe player 15 is making all youtube videos load extremely slow as if they were in slow motion and/or it won't even start. Here is what i have done/troubleshooted

    -Reinstalled chrome, firefox
    -Reinstalled adobe player 15
    -Cleared all caches/history/cookies/etc
    -This is a clean install there aren't any viruses etc
    -100mb plus internet connection so it isn't the internet, all other pages load fine
    -I can play other players just fine, it seems to just be with youtube?
    -I confirmed it isn't the youtube account as I can go to my ipad with the same account ( or not even be logged in ) and it works fine
    -There is plenty of hard drive space ( again new install )
    -There is no hardware acceleration enabled ( and I was testing on html5 anyway )

    So I am pretty confused at the moment what could cause this...doesn't make sense that other adobe players work fine but youtube doesn't. Is this a known adobe bug or something and I just don't know it? I'd rather get adobe player 15 installed if at all possible instead of downgrading.

    cleaned registry ( apparently some sort of file from when i tried to uninstall etc had remained in the registry so I had to clean that and I was able to do a fresh install and works like a charm )
