Well this place is garbage. No one has been helpful here, and it's inactive. Have to wait 5 hours just to get one useless reply. Hopefully I can find a real forum, with people that can actually assist me.

I Googled the issue.
After reading various websites & forum posts, I found that you don't have anything to worry about.
Flash movies have high usage.
A picture from a sample post I found:

I get high cpu usage when watching Flash too.
It's just the nature of Flash. :geek:
