A good question.
I have had the browser freeze problem since the beginning of September. There are discussions on the Google Chrome forum, but the only "fix" is to to uninstall Flash.
SORT IT OUT ADOBE!!!
Just locked up again and a computer reset was required.
I've unistalled Flash again.
I have installed and uninstalled so many times I lost count. How many ways are there to install and uninstall and why would doing this repeatedly fix anything. Can flash player be downloaded onto a memory stick and then downloaded?
