Operating System - Windows 7, 64 bit
Web Browsers - Mozilla Firefox, Version 3.6.6
Microsoft Internet Explorer, 32 bit, Version 8.0
Flash Player Version 10.1
For some reason, the new version of Skype is playing havoc with my Flash Player plugins for both Firefox and Internet Explorer.
I downloaded and installed the latest Skype software today and noticed immediate problems. Skype was not responding and the Flash Player plugins on both browsers began crashing. I uninstalled both Skype and the Flash Player plugins. I then restarted my computer and reinstalled the Flash plugins. Functionality was restored to the Flash plugins in my browsers. I then reinstalled Skype. It was immediately non-functional and my Flash plugins started crashing again.
I am now at the point where I have reinstalled the Flash plugins again and functionality is restored. I know if I try to install Skype, the Flash plugins will crash again.
Any suggestions on how to proceed?
This is a shot in the dark but, try installing Skype first and then the plugins.
That was something I hadn't thought of. I tried it, but it didn't work.
I appreciate you trying to help out.
I have a few questions for you since I am not able to reproduce what you are seeing.
1)What version of Skype are you running?
2)Does IE have any problems or only Firefox?
3)Do both the browser and skype have to be running at the same time?
4)Are you on a call or chat session when you recieve a crash?
5)Can you close any other running background software to see if things improve?
