Windows 7: Windows 7 Random Flash Crashes

Windows 7 Random Flash Crashes

For the past few months my HP Pavilion DV4 Laptop has had many problems with Adobe Flash Player.
For some weird reason, every time I start up a flash game/video/program, flash will crash after one or two minutes. This is always the norm with the exception of, sometimes, iTunes and Sony Acid Pro. Then to reactivate Flash I will need to reboot my system. For example, I'm playing an action flash game. After a few minutes of gaming the application freezes, and when I click it it does not respond, leaving me to shut it down with Task Manager. From then on until the next reboot, Flash will not work: all Flash programs will freeze and crash when launched. I have managed to bear with the occasional reboots every now and then, but these days the number of times I reboot is getting ridiculous. Is there a fast, simple way to solve this?

You did not mention this in your post but have you tried to uninstall and reinstall flash?

Also, does this happen to all your browsers?
