Windows 7: Flash player related application crashes on windows 7

Flash player related application crashes on windows 7

I just installed windows 7 today, and I just find out that the flash-related application - you tube and Facebook flash game crashes whenever I tried to launch them.

I had followed the instructions in adobe, uninstall and reinstall adobe player 10, but it doesn't solve the problem...

Also, I tried IE 8, and google chrome, and both of them are facing the same problem.

I think the problem lies in Microsoft or Adobe itself because I didn't experience the problem in Windows 7 RC.

Just when I wanna give a thumbs up to 7, problem comes

Does it happen if you test in [safe mode + net]?

Because some of the "extras" which are almost certainly causing your issue are going to be deactivated in safe mode. If the crash doesn't happen in safe mode, that tells us a lot about the nature of the problem.

I had this problem and the solution is to turn off hardware acceleration of flash.

when playing a flash video, right-click on the video and go to settings.

un-click the box that says "hardware acceleration"
