I`m having weird problems with Flash. Flash-player seems to block my firewall unconcious, as it halts my internet completely. The problem is not with my ISP, as my Xbox 360 Live, which uses the same connection via router work normally even if Windows 7 won`t. Also Flash-based applications, mainly EA Download Manager, won`t work.
Now I`ve tried numerous solutions, like running the software in a compatibility mode and as an administrator, installing various drivers and stuff but none of this works. As said, this is really weird as any other internet activity gets through but Windows 7 won`t after trying some flash-apps. Just for the record, I`m running build 7000 64-bit and everything gets through a router. I have fought this problem now for several days, without a resolution and it`s driving me absolutely crazy!
