Windows 7: Adobe Flash updates may be causing my BSODs

Adobe Flash updates may be causing my BSODs

For the last few days I've been getting frequent BSODs. The BSOD message suggested I disable or uninstall recent software and hardware. I noticed the last 2 software updates occurred about the same time I began getting BSODs. I uninstalled the 2 Adobe Flash updates, and I've been BSOD free for about 12 hours now. I will update this thread if I get another BSOD.

BSOD free for 36 hours

BSOD free for 36 hours after uninstalling Adobe Flash updates. Noticed a large number of BSODs by other users in the last 24 hours. Is this normal?

It is normal for a number of users to have blue screen crashes in a 24 hour period. Crashes and Debugging is the busiest part of these forums. Hard to say if yours were Adobe related or something else without the crash reports.

You are welcome to assume your crashes were Adobe Flash related, but the software may have magnified an issue on your system and is coincidental. It could be the crashes were not Flash related and that is just masking the true problem...
