The newest release of Adobe's Flash Player may cause some users to experience extremely delayed streaming when viewing videos. If you are experiencing very slow download due to this problem, you will experience it on other sites (such as Youtube).
If you find you are one of the affected users:
Open up a notepad and copy and paste this into it as you may be required to close your browser at some point. (you may also be required to exit from other Flash-based programs such as Skype)
Download the flash uninstaller with this link
Save file and run the uninstaller
Download Flash 10.1 with this link
Save file and run the installer
Adobe's Updater may keep trying to push you the new version. DO NOT accept this update.
