Gosh, I dislike everything about Adobe

Nov 17, 2011 5:42 PM

Adobe sent me ver 11.102. etc and I installed it over my previous verison.  As soon as I attempted to access ESPN3, the flash player crashed and crashed and crashed repeatedly.  After 20 minutes of futzing with the crashes, I decided to use the Windows 7 Restore only to discover that Windows could not restore because some of the files were damanged etc etc..  After another 20 minutes of futzing with the Windows 7 I managed to get control of my computer again.  I immediately uninstalled the damned Adobe crap but I would like to get able to view ESPN3's current programs which began almost an hour ago.  Only problem is: how do I view them without Flash?  So I would like to get my old 10.159.2 or whatever it was and forget this crap altogether.  But I can not find any mention of downloading old Flash anywhere.  No wonder Steve Jobs said that Adobe was crap.  How do I proceed from here?  p.s.  I am sorry for my attitude, but I am angry.

    In reading through the various forum messages, there appear to be two relevant issues: one is something called "HW" to which I am unfamiliar, and would like further clarification (e.g. Hitomi, is HW the same thing as HD and merely a typographical mistake or is it something else altogether.


    How do I disable or enable hardware acceleration?


    If that does not solve the problem, try this:


    Go to the control panel and go to Internet Options.  Click the Advanced tab and check Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering.
