Windows 7: IE9 &/or Adobe Flash Crashing Theme Service

IE9 &/or Adobe Flash Crashing Theme Service

Hi Everyone, I'm not sure which forum this belongs under. The issue I am having is that I am using IE9 & have multiple tabs open & some will have be using flash (i have flash 11 installed). What will happen is that the theme service will stop & cause the taskbar to goto "windows basic" color scheme. However it will also cause it so that IE9 goes blank, & that the Windows 7 start menu will "appear" that it has moved to the top, when you click on the start button. There are times where it goes back to normal about 30 seconds, but most of the time I have to reboot.

I have took some pictures of the screen.

Thanks

Are you up to date via Windows Update?
Did it work OK in IE8?
Did you install the 64-bit version of IE9?
Are you sure you installed Flash after installing IE9 (to get the appropriate Flash version)?

yes, but it's been a while since I last used ie8.

I installed the one that came up on the windows update (after installing Windows 7). Not sure if that installs both the 32 & 64 bit.. I would assume it would install both, since Windows 7 installs IE8 at default. One thing that I could try is if I have the same issue with 64 bit IE9, I've been using the 32 bit version since I've been so used to using it & that for the longest time flash wasn't compatible with 64bit IE.

I did install flash. Version 11 seems to act worst then 10.3, so that is the version I'm using now

As a test, I'd uninstall flash: Uninstall Flash Player | Windows . Reboot.
Then uninstall IE9 (going back to 8). Reboot.
If you system is fine without IE9 or flash, the next step would be to install Flash for IE8 and observe system performance again. If all is still ok, I'd uninstall the IE8 version of Flash and reboot. Now you are ready to install IE 9 again without trying to lay it on top of Flash. Reboot. Observe system performance with IE9 and no Flash for a while. Many of us are afraid of IE9 thanks to numerous posts of people having trouble with it or claimimg it's worse than IE8. But if your system is perfectly happy with it, your finally ready to add Flash to IE9 to see if that is the straw that broke the camel's back.

Also, take a look at posts #2 and #4 in this thread: IE9 issue

Hi everyone, looks like Google toolbar for IE was causing my issue.
