Windows 7: Flash player problem: green lines through middle of YT videos?

Flash player problem: green lines through middle of YT videos?

Hi I don't remember recently updating or changing my Flash player in any way.

However, for a week now I have been getting green/pink areas in any YouTube video I try to play. Problem is not only pertaining to YT and occurs with videos on other websites such as the BBC news site.



I already reinstalled the latest version of Adobe Flash player and restarted PC with no success. Any ideas what could be causing this?

This occurs regardless if I view videos in full-screen mode or embedded, etc.

Well IMHO. That looks more like a graphics card problem ,try updating your gfx drivers first, Last time I had a problem like this my gfx failed.

Funny, now that you mentioned graphics card, I recall updating my NVIDIA Quadro FX 2700M drivers yesterday as part of a Windows Update...I wonder if I should revert?
