Please help video/picture quality issue


Recently after switching from windows xp to windows 7 all flash videos played from youtube, twitchtv, etc are all blocky and pixelated even when at 720p and higher. Pictures on the internet are slightly blurry as well. It's only a problem on the internet, not when viewing files from my desktop. I thought since this problem started after switching over to windows 7 it had to be related to that so I went back to xp, and even in xp the problem is still persisting.

I've tried many things to fix it like changing video card drivers, screen refresh rates etc and nothing has worked. This is starting to seriously become annoying. anyone have any ideas what the problem may be??
