high cpu while watching videos

Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, 2 GHz / 4085 MB

whenever i watch an online video on my laptop (or playing a flash game), after a few minutes the cpu will spike to 100 and the video and audio will slow down to the point where i can't watch it. Task Manager and whatever browser I'm using are usually the culprit, sometimes an svchost process will be taking up a lot of cpu as well. I only have this problem with online videos. How can I find out what the problem is?

It could be latency issue which is your computer ability to stream audio and video. So, you should check your drivers to make sure they are functioning currently.

In the Disk Manager you can run a scan for driver conflicts. To run this scan follow the instructions below.

1. Click Start
2. Choose Run
command.
3. type " compmgmt.msc ", This will run a scan of your drivers.

Try clearing your web cache and stopping startup programs.
