Flash player problems & corrupted downloads

Problem 1) Within the past month, since moving in with my older brother and being on a new internet connection, I've been having problems with all flash videos I try to play. Either on youtube or some other random site, they will load a little bit then stop completely and just sit in buffering forever. If I click ahead of that specific moment in the video, it starts loading again and then will stop again. It does it in Chrome AND Internet Explorer. I would clear the cache in chrome and IE and it would work for 5 mins as normal then start doing it again.

Problem 1.1) Along with the flash problems, I'm noticing that whenever I go to look a photos online, say on Photo Bucket, 1 out of every 5 images is distorted and has several artifacts in it when I try to enlarge it from it's sample icon to normal size. But it doesn't do it when I'm viewing photos I have saved on my computer.

Solutions to Problem 1 I've already tired that haven't worked) Reinstalling Chrome, reinstalling Adobe Flash Player 11, reinstalling Java, clearing cache everywhere, disable all add-ons, change security levels, disable hardware acceleration, wiping hard drive and reinstalling everything, restarting router and computer

Problem 2) While trying to solve problem 1 by doing a video driver update, I noticed problem 2. Whenever I go to download a file that is any larger than about 100kb, windows says it's corrupted when I try to open the file or run the program I just downloaded.

Solutions to Problem 2 I read about) I looked around on google and some people are saying that the internet connection is too slow and it's only downloading parts of the file. I have a T1 connection which is was faster than my DSL connection I had at my other house. Tried restarting the router and everything and still nothing.

Any helps with these problems would be much appreciated!

  1. Also, sometimes the flash videos will stop. And then restart to the very beginning and start playing. And then restart again at the same point.
  2. A T1 is only 1.54Mb/s. DSL and cable are faster, at least at downloading. The T1 is 1.54mb/s up and down.
