    To run flash, the software has to use other resources on your computer, unfortunately the flash software is so badly written (and thats not my opinion its on the internet from security companies) that if you setup a video with some additional code and run it in flash it can exploit large holes in the code and install things on your machine. Most people only use flash when they have to and dissable it when they dont. Also in most cases you wont even know its running,its used for some animated adverts but not all.
