Then the issue is the download speed, not your computer.  The best thing you can do with dial-up is when the movie or song starts to play press pause and wait.  It will take a while but your internet connection is slow and will need more time to download what you are viewing or listening to.

I hope this helps.

How long is a while?

Unfortunately, a long time.  It may be better to download the clip or movie you want to see.  Flash movies can be found in your internet cache, and you can watch them from there.  But if you can use "Save As" I would encourage you to do that.

You can play most with Windows Media.  Just download to the hard drive.

I think it may have something to do with the AdobeFlashPlayer installed on my computer ::pondering::
When I tried to click on the flashplayer icon that's on my desktop,it would'nt open ::pondering::
