    Ok please forgive me if this has been covered already. I didn't run any beta or RC versions of windows 7 so this is my first experience with it now that its RTM. Also its my first time running x64 OS.

    My question is why does it lag when using flash in my browser.

    More specifically when I'm on youtube the videos jump and lag.(my internet connection is fast and even does it when the video is already fully buffered)

    I'm using the newest firefox and running x64 windows 7 RTM

    I'm positive my computer isn't slow cause I'm running a Q6600 overclocked and have 4gbs of ram...

    Any help?

    Could it possibly be that its because im running the x86 version of firefox instead of the x64 version...

    Also is there a x64 version of flash player available yet?


    thanks for any help

    Flash isn't completely compatible with x64. I had the same problems. Reinstallation helps much....

    I use Shiretoko, an version of firefox 3.51 in native 64, i haven't flash.

    I must install on first, firefox x86, addons , plugins and then install Shiretoko; Adobe don't release flash x64 for windows but pre-release one for linux x64.
