Win 8 Release candidate 8400

What version flash, 32bit?, what add ons in FF & IE? Im running for both the active x, and plugin. You could try un-installing flash then re-installing the most recent version. Good luck

I finally located the problem. The problems come from HP Quick Launch Buttons driver provided by Microsoft. That's shutting down my soundcard. When I try to open any kind of media file that has sound, it takes 10 sec from this driver to switch on Soundmax sound driver.
I tried different versions (new and old, with compatibility install and without) of HP's own QLB driver but win7 just blocks all of them... So I guess there is no solution to this pain in the ass issue I'm havin...
