Downloaded air/flash/java(??) software suddenly not working.

I play online poker professionally and for a living, and everything has been running fine.
Then today, my SkyPoker app suddenly started timing out at the table and becoming very laggy and skippy.
I have argued with the Sky support team but they're convinced it is my error. My internet connection is fine so it's not that, and if i log in on a Windows laptop it works fine.
So i opened up Betfair Poker on the desktop and that is nowhere near as bad but is still not running smoothly at all.
To my knowledge no updates were installed before it started running like this. My Safari also seems to be pretty laggy at the moment.
I know NOTHING about computers or macs whatsoever, so i don't even know if they run on Java, Flash, Adobe AIR (which is had to download to install SkyPoker) but this mac is only 6 months old so wouldn't expect this out of it.
I need to know how to check what's causing the problem or how to fix it but i have no idea where to start. I thought it was Sky's problem but as it seems to be happening on all these kinds of software i'm thinking it's definitely a problem with my mac.
I'm running Lion 10.7.4 and have all the latest updates for Java, Adobe Air, Adobe Flash and the latest actual software for the programs i want to use installed. I even tried uninstalling then reinstalling them manually.
The last software update updated Safari and the Raw Camera Compatability Update, but these were updated after the problems started.
Any help is appreciated because i'm pulling my hair out and cannot continue with these problems on what has otherwise been an awesome first mac experience for me. I don't really want to have to send my mac off to be looked at by someone either.
I posted this on another site last night, but about 2 hours later i restarted my computer and the software worked fine afterwards, but today, same problem again, which is leading me to believe it's their problem and not a problem with my glorious iMac.
If anyone can think of anything i can personally do to resolve any issue or at least diagnose an issue i'd be grateful, if you think it's the software's problem then i'd be grateful for that advice too so i can tell them.
PS Apologies if this is in the wrong section but i didn't know where to put it.
