Hello

I have installed the newest web browsers: Opera, Firefox and IE. I have the lastest version of Adobe Flash Player.
When I want to watch any video on Youtube - it's almost impossible, cause it jams. Even when I down it to 360p.
It's about 50 percent of CPU usage, sometimes even more.
I tried to install older version of Flash Player - no effects.

Does this happen using all 3 browsers?
Have you tried disabling hardware acceleration in the affected browser(s) or flash player (or both)?
Have you tried downloading a video and viewing it offline for CPU utilization comparison?

Any sign of a heat-related issue? If so, perform a general cleaning. If not, I think I'll bow out at this point and ask someone else to respond with a few fresh ideas. Good luck and sorry I couldn't help you.

Some system specs and internet speed would be helpful, youtube become pretty demanding.

I've never had any problems like this while I was working on Windows 7. I just switched to a new system. I'm sure it has nothing to do with hardware.

Problem resolved. I realised that when I installed my graphic card (AMD) I saw some errors, but I ingored it. So I tried to install it again (now in Windows 7 compatibility mode). Installation was succesful. Now I can watch Youtube videos perfectly.
