Windows 7: Flash player is crashing in all browsers

Flash player is crashing in all browsers

I'm having a bit of trouble with this computer in particular. It is running Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit. For some strange reason, when any Facebook game is being played/is open, after so long the flash player will crash. It does not matter which browser, it happens all the same. I've tried re-installing all of the browsers, and both IE and non IE flash player. All of the browsers, and flash player its self are the latest versions. Has anyone else run into this problem, and what did they do to fix the issue?

Thanks!

(I'm not the one playing the Facebook games, trying to help someone else out with the issue.)

Hi Flipsy, unzip my file, Right click and Run as Administrator with your firewall disabled. Reboot, check FW is started then reinstall Flash Player. uninstall_flash_player.zip

Thanks! I'm in the middle of the restart. Will it matter if I install the 64-bit flash player in this case (once it finishes the restart)? Or should I stick with 32-bit?

RE: FLASH Crashing

Hey Flipsy -

Yes, when you install Flash use the 64bit installer. The new Flash Player will automatically install both 32 & 64 bit support.

And don't forget to first install the IE Version (active x) before installing the version for other browsers.

Have fun!

Do as tagen states.

Thanks guys! Looks like the uninstaller did the trick so far.

Will let you know if it crashes, but I think it's good.

Again; many thanks!
