Shockwave flash crash

Hello folks

The last few days ive had noting but problems with Chrome. Shockwave flash keeps on crashing every 15-20 minutes. If i watch youtube videos, use facebook or just have on the starting page. It crash.

Ive been lurking a bit on the world wide web to find a fix on it. But only "fix" ive come over is to go to plugins in your browser, and turn the built in flash engine that comes with Chrome off. But that didnt fix it for me.

Anyone got any ideas?

Not sure if this is the right board to post on, if not please tell me so i can move it

If Chrome has a hardware acceleration try turning it off.
I have never used Chrome so I don't know if it has one or not.
Firefox has it under Tools/Options/Advance

As i understand it Chrome updates flash automatically. But now when ive turnd off chromes built in flash i have to update it manually.

And GPU acceleration is turned off.
Il try to put on, and see what happens

And another issue i forgot to mention is that every day when o turn on my PC, and open certain web sites my browser locks up for a few seconds, but only the first time i enter those sites.

Adobe Flash Player 11.7 Beta for Desktops | applications, content and videos - Adobe Labs

The link to update is above. You can either use the 11.7 Beta or the released version. Be sure to remove your old flash first.

You might check for Video card driver update,
Intel had one recently.

The obvious thing to do is to uninstall both programs and then re-install them so you have the most up-to-date versions but I'm wondering if there was any other way to get the most up-to-date versions i.e. using a command. Running W7 64bit btw
