If you have already scanned PC with an updated Anti-Virus and still the issue exists then I would suggest some troubleshooting techniques to resolve this problem:
- Update browser
- Remove unwanted Add-ons
- Remove unwanted Tool-bars
- Repair Registry
- Repair ActiveX objects and shared DLLs
In case of facebook and Zynga I would suggest to Check for Problems with your Internet Connection.Try to Update Java and Reduce the Number of Running Internet Applications.
Sometimes Multimedia content lag due to Hardware Acceleration, so disabling Hardware Acceleration should fix your problem.
- Open Flash Video in browser
- Right click on Video Player | Settings
- Open Display Panel
- Uncheck Enable Hardware Acceleration
If issue still exists then you can find some more techniques described in detail here:
thank you, just saw your answer. I don't know much about computers and how to do these things but I will try and see what I can come up with. I did update things but thank you thank you thank you for sending me ideas and things to do to fix it.
One thing maybe is the problem has to do with a tool bar. One got put on when I was putting things back on my computer. one day while playing farmville i accidently clicked on the music. Every time i play farmville this music plays. i've taken off the tool bar but it keeps playing every time i play farmville. norton says there is no virus on my computer and running scans shows no virus.
I was just notified that my yahoo (which I usually don't use) was hacked into on the 16th.
I will keep trying and thank you again for your help.
Which toolbar? Have you worked the problem out yet? If so, how?
I have had trouble with my browsers freezing and crashing for over a year now and you are the first person to say anything about the hardware accelerator! Thank You! I have not have one problem since i turned that off! I swear i could almost kiss you hahaha I had done everything.. took all toolbars off, I clear history, cookies, and cache every time I close a browser. As an extra precaution I even run a clean up afterwords. I have tried IE (which I hate to use) chrome (not a fan of either) and firefox. I check adobe and java to insure they are updated regularly and have a quick time plug in also. I have Norton's Utilities that runs every night and after if it promps I defrag the registry. Also like her it said I have not virus. I was about at my wits end. So honestly THANK YOU
