Re: flash video will not install
He is definitely talking about Windows and not Ubuntu. Odd how he ended up here for a Windows issue.
But to answer his question anyways. Honestly with Windows, your best best is a reformat/clean install. Pop in your recovery disks and have it wipe out your entire system and reinstall it. There isn't really any other way. That will bring your system back to its factory default settings (what it was like when you first bought it). Then reinstall all your applications, should be as good as new then. Then eventually it'll slow down again (because it's Windows) so just do a wipe again, repeat. Make sure to back up any important data!!
Note to OP: This forum is for Ubuntu and other GNU/Linux based operating systems. Your best to go to the Microsoft support forums for Windows questions.
