Computer Artifacts in Webplayer ONLY

I need some help, no one can seem to tell me what the issue is that I am having.
I just got my buddy's old gaming pc off him and after I built it I had an unusual issue with artifacts. I can watch YouTube, Netflix, downloaded content and game perfectly and in 1080 but when I try to stream using Putlocker, Cucirca or CraveTV I get artifacts but only within the webplayer, NOT the entire screen.
Since this is not over the entire screen, every comp store and the IT guys at my work say it isn't the gpu. If it's not the gpu then what is it and how do I fix it?
Please help!

There are some cards that do that

In Chrome, other browsers and Flash. I'll not write all the settings but give an example of what I try next. Change the google to match what you want to try.


Google "How to disable Flash Hardware acceleration"

Thanks, I will try that when I get home. I am assuming that it has to be a setting/software issue since it only artifacts within the player and not all the time.

No need to guess. Examples are out there.

It didn't work. I tried disabling it as well as uninstalling and reinstalling. I also tried using various cables and still had the same issue.

OK, next test.

Since I don't see a test web link I can't test it here but you can try it on other PCs. If it does it on all PCs it's the web site. If it's just a few PCs then those PCs have issues.
