Thanks Gordon!

I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but had the same problem. I then uninstalled the new version. It's amazing how fast everything runs with Flash uninstalled. Web sites load instantly and CPU usage is minimal. My CPU fan is actually off for once.

Downside is that many sites that stream multimedia (Pandora, Amazon Prime, CBS.com) use Flash. Is there an alternative to the Flash player that works with these sites?
