Computer programs freeze

When trying to watch a movie or a clip, it will play but I need to move or click the mouse. Flash games are almost unplayable especially on Firefox. On demanding games that I have bought there is no problems. I'm told to update Adobe flash player and Shockwave which I have, but that didn't do anything.
At the websites where I play the games I'm told to update Adobe flash player and Shockwave which I have, but that didn't do anything.
Techs that I have talked to say reinstall windows but that seems to be there answer for everything.
I'd be very grateful for any guidance.

Try disabling all your add-ons in firefox as a first step. I am assuming you have only tested this with firefox and not IE? Try that also. You could have a security program stopping your flash.

What OS do you have?

Most tech support people like HP, they do not know what they are doing. They just read the script.
