You can't influence that. All you can do: buy a faster CPU if you find your current one too slow.

Incidentally, the CPU-usage of Flash is why Apple doesn't want it on the iPhone. They might be right.

Maybe Steven Jobs is right. flash is CPU hug. I start to agree with him that why he bans flash on Apple product.

I can run almost every common software with my 3-4 years old CPU and I can never keep up with adobe flash.

Adobe softwares are not user friendly anymore too.

Where are the alternatives to adobe softwares????

Just a note about Adobe Flash
by MarkFlax Forum moderator / June 10, 2010 5:54 AM PDT

I can't say if this is related to your problem, but Adobe's Flash is now vulnerable to new attacks. Adobe has recommended that users upgrade to a Pre-release version which is not vulnerable to this latest attack.

More here;

I've installed this pre-release version and have no issues.

However, as has already been said, your Celeron 900 is now under-powered for many of today's components.
