Windows 7: Broswer Flash problem

Broswer Flash problem


I have Windows 7 RTM, and I'm using both FF 3.5 and IE8. I have this problems - many times when I'm viewing web pages with flash, the browser halts and I can't use the session anymore. It happens on both browsers. I've uninstalled it and then they work just fine but then I lose functionality. I tied to Install the latest flash version (10), but it halts the browsers again.

Anyone familiar with this problem?
