    hey guys, new to the forum and i have one quick issue i cant seem to resolve myself.

    Just got a new Vaio laptop. Windows 7 home 64-bit. i5 processor. I use firefox as prime browser, IE as backup. both are 32-bit browser versions.

    I can get some video to stream properly, aka netflix & comcast. However i am having issues with sport highlight clips and youtube videos.

    The audio and stream runs perfect and fluent, but the picture is messed up with a strange choppy rainbow effect. The colors distort and stuff.

    I have tried uninstalling and re-installing adobe flash 10 with little luck. Ive tried previous versions as well aka 9 and back, but cannot bypass the "need to update flash warning"

    I am running a 64-bit OS windows 7. with this version of flash-
    Adobe Flash Player

    For some reason 64-bit is all you can get via sony's customize shop experience.

    Any help you guys can give is greatly appreciated. I can post a screen shot if necessary.

    second off topic question. do they not make a Win7 32-bit version? i understand the basic premise of a 64bit being potentially faster (assuming your running 64 programs and a tech savy person), but why would sony limit the OS options to 64 only? :confused:
