Adobe Flash Player 10 causing CPU slow down?

Is is possible Adobe's Flash Player 10 could cause my Laptop CPU to bog down while using IE8? I did uninstall, reboot and reacquire Adobe FP10 for IE but I am still experiencing slower page loads and then eventually IE closes to recover. The page(s) affected are for Facebook under the Zoo World Application while I'm "treasure hunting".

I didn't experience any slow down using the previous Flash Player. Could/Should I try to go back to the previous Flash Player? Or is that a bad idea?

I'm off to sleep for now, but will check back in about 6 hours. Aloha for now...

The best way to check is to uninstall Adobe Flash Player, and see if you notice any difference in your PC speed.

Press ctrl+alt+del. Task manager will open. Click the processes tab. On the title bar above the running processes click the memory tab to sort the processes by which are using the most memory to which are using the least. What processes are using the most?

CrystalStar: The same thing happens to me on my laptop...Dell Inspiron 1525 Vista Home Premium....I.E. 8.0....ONLY when I am on Facebook playing Farmville. I did uninstall, reboot and reacquire Adobe FP10 for IE but I am still experiencing slower page loads and then eventually IE closes to recover. It does not happen on my two Dell Desktops...I will try the advice "Sunny" gave to you next time.

Aloha, back "online" here with a follow-up to my post. It turns out it wasn't CPU related after all. I learned from Facebook friends that deleting Facebook application-related websites from here:

http://www.macromedia.com/support/do...manager07.html

dramatically improves my laptop and browser response times in Facebook. I prefer using Google Chrome or Firefox (both quicker) over IE8. Sorry to be so long in coming back to post this! Aloha for now...

If you use a better browser such as Firefox and the symtoms of bog downs and crashes stop, the flying fickle finger of fate points to MS Internet Explorer 8.

Games on FaceBook can be very sluggish sometimes.
I have found along with many others on some of the game discoussion boards that Chrome is by far the best browser for playing games on FB.
There are some games that are barely playable and really no fun at all to play using IE or Firefox and for some reason Chrome plays them great.

Don't know why it works so much better as pretty much all the games are flashed based but it really does.

Even though I use IE8 the vast majority of the time and FF sometimes for regular surfing Chrome is all I use to play games on FaceBook now.

EDIT:There is one FB game that has the best graphics I have seen on FB called Island Life and it is virtially unplayable in either IE or FF but Chrome plays it just fine.

If you don't like the Google aspect Of Chrome you can use SWare Iron which is Chrome with the Google aspect removed and works just as well as chrome
SRWare Iron: The browser of the future - based on the free Sourcecode "Chromium" - without any problems at privacy and security

Google's Web browser Chrome thrilled with an extremely fast site rendering, a sleek design and innovative features. But it also gets critic from data protection specialists , for reasons such as creating a unique user ID or the submission of entries to Google to generate suggestions. SRWare Iron is a real alternative. The browser is based on the Chromium-source and offers the same features as Chrome - but without the critical points that the privacy concern.

We could therefore create a browser with which you can now use the innovative features without worrying about your privacy.
Chrome
SWare Iron
