Well I just want to open up and empty my bowels on it. Since installing Windows 7, I have had nothing but conflicts and issues with it. I seem to remember the same happened when I was on XP but I managed to resolve it somehow. Now I am having the same issues again with it sucking up masses of system resources and then crashing.
PS No I am not wa ...[text shortened]... cannot find anything intuitive.
Anyone experienced anything similar and can shed some light?
You should download the latest updates from Adobe if you have not already done so and also the latest versions for your browsers as well any updates for Windows Seven. It all depends on what browser you are using, but you can install different versions which handle flash. chrome for example has a built in flash player, pepperflash, there may be conflicts with it and shockwave.
To install and use an alternate version of Flash Player:
Type about:plugins into the address bar at the top of a Chrome browser window.
Click “Details” at the upper-right corner of the page.
Find the “Flash” or “Shockwave Flash” listing for the integrated plug-in on the page and click the corresponding “Disable” button. To identify the integrated plug-in, see the table of plug-in filenames above.
Find the “Flash” or “Shockwave Flash” listing for the system plug-in on the page and click the corresponding “Enable” button. To identify the system plug-in, see the table of plug-in filenames above.
Close all Chrome windows and restart the browser.
Chrome uses the installed system plug-in. To confirm the version of Flash Player that is currently running in your browser, see Find Flash Player version (tn_15507).
I am a linux user and Adobe has provided no updates for the chromium browser so if I want to use flash I need to use firefox. Personally i don't miss it, its quality is poor and its stability is also suspect as you are experiencing. HTML 5 has been the new standard for over a year which has easy integration of video, why sites like assbook and the BBC insist on using flash I cannot say.
Hopefully this helps
