Flash game/internet explorer so slow in windows 8



I have a 2011 Alienware laptop with a 12mb internet connection, so should have NO ISSUES, yet Facebook games on Windows 8 are so slow and glitch


I've updated all flash to latest version and tried to find a cure but nothing works, I've even tried to find a way to revert back to windows 7 as I'm coming across quite a few speed/loading issues across the board. It's quite disappointing and can't seem to find a way to fix it.


Can anyone help with my speed issues on internet explorer/flash/windows in general?


thanks heaps!!! My only other alternative is to redo the original Windows 7 partition from factory. Oh and by the way I just paid for the Win 8 upgrade so it's not BETA etc etc.



Just general information. In Windows 8 Flashplayer is embedded. Flashplayer only works on certain "white listed" sites in IE10 Modern, but works fine in IE10 Desktop.  Java also does not work in IE10 Modern.
