I think you're describing what is normally known as "image tearing".
It might be that you have the movie's frame rate set too high, or perhaps
you need to update the video drivers for your graphics card.

Is it only in Flash and Director that you get image tearing, and can you
prevent it by using a smaller bitmap to move?
What are the resolution and refresh rate of your monitor set to? Do you have
vertical sync on?
Does your computer play video smoothly?
I've seen image tearing attributed to a power supply being at its limit; is
there any chance that's the case with your computer?
It happens only in Flash and Director, when I animate any image or shape no matter if it is bitmap or vector shape.
My monitor’s resolution is 1024x768, refresh rate 75Hertz (it doesn’t support higher). I can’t find the vertical sync though.
My P.C. plays video perfectly. I don’t think that has to do with the power supply.
Note, that when I played that files in different computers, the image tearing always shows.

That's a bit low - but if it's an LCD it should most likely be set to 60Hz.

Right-click Windows desktop. Choose Properties. Settings. Advanced. Click
the tab with the name of your video card. Choose Performance & Quality
Settings. Vertical sync should be listed in a box perhaps labelled "Global
driver settings". Write down what it's set to. Uncheck "Application
controlled" and move the slider to "On".
After testing Director/Flash, if it doesn't help then change it back to
whatever it was set to.

Have you tried reinstalling Director and Flash?
It didn’t make any difference when I changed to 60Hz (my monitor is LCD and it is recognised as an analogue by the video card).
There is not such a thing as a vertical sync in my video card, I have checked everywhere.
I have tried reinstalling Director and Flash many times.
Perhaps, is it something wrong with the connection between monitor and P.C. (it is VGA, should I use XGA or SVGA)? My monitor is recognised by the video card as an analogue monitor (I have an LCD monitor). Should it be recognised as a digital monitor? Please Helpppppppppp.
