There have been previous threads trying to solve
flash video crashes in multiple browsers.
I may have missed a thread but has anybody had my experience?
Both IE8 and Chrome in Windows 7 Home Premium 64b were crashing with flash videos. Reading forums, Adobe Flash was to blame in that it has problems with IE8 64b etc. Well I made sure that the 32bit version was running and still had the same problem. Occasionally I noticed a message advising that the 8500 graphics card had recovered rom a crash.
The graphics driver was uninstalled and then re-installed. Strangely both my browsers were no longer processing internet packets. I uninstalled Chrome and re-installed the latest version. IE8 and Chrome then operated normally AND no more flash video crashes.
Reading some of the posts on the Internet it is possible that others may in fact be suffering graphics driver problems, a common cause of freezing.
