I just got this new computer, running 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium. Everything was working fine at first, but then it automatically updated some things. Now, Flash doesn't work online anymore, in any browser. The content starts to load, then the browser freezes, and I have to force quit it.
I have the most recent version of Flash Player, and I can still play .swf files I make myself, so I don't know what to do anymore.
I'm fairly sure that this isn't an isolated problem, as a friend of mine is experiencing the same thing.
In a possibly related problem, .avi and other video files on my hard drive no longer play, nor do music files.
I doubt my specs are needed, since this is almost certainly a software problem, but I'm running on a Dell Studio, with a 2GHz dual core processor and with 4Gb of RAM.
