Adobe flash player 9 will only play 5 to 10 seconds of video then stops

My Adobe flash player 9 will only play 5 to 10 seconds of video . Then it hangs or stops . It will sometimes restart 10, 20, or 30 seconds later then stop again and repete the same action . Sometimes i can only get the player to play the first 5 to 10 seconds then it hangs/stops . You can let it buffer for very long periods with the same result . I am on 764 dsl . No problems with any other players i have installed . Browser cache is clean. Its probably something simple i overlooked. I am running internet explorer 7 and can access firefox with the same result. Any ideas.

                              thanks eric

    Beni, thanks for the advice. I am not sure but it may have been a spyware program that was giving the flash player problems . I uninstalled the program restarted the computer but it still had the same problem . A day went by with a second restart and the problem vanished. Figgure that.   

                                  Thanks , Eric

How do i get my flash player to stop pausing every 2 seconds

Flash Player is a software for viewing animations and movies using computer programs such as a web browser. If you encounter that your flash player pauses every 2 seconds, maybe that is not an error. Maybe, the video that you are watching is just buffering. My suggestion to that is just click pause first and let the video buffer. Once it is completed loading play it. But if it is still pausing, you may uninstall it on your computer and install an updated flash player. You may use this link to download the latest flash player:
I hope I answered your question.
