Try the flash settings. Disable hardware acceleration.

I know that seems odd but try it.

Try this, it might help. If you are at 90%+ CPU usage in a brower, you have other issues besides flash.

Your RAM may be the problem. If you have too many program loaded in the background RAM. You may not have enough to play flash programs efficiently. use msconfig to stop programs from loading at startup.

Also your high CPU usage indicates the same. You also may want to scan for malware in your browser. If your clean you should increase the Virtual Memory

Hope this helps!

Go deeper into the resource usage. Use perfmon or resource monitor to see what exactly is being used.
