Shockwave/Flash Player crashes computer
Hello.

I've been running Windows XP and the latest version of flash on this computer for as long as I can remember. The only thing is, about a year ago my computer tended to restart itself when I tried to load a large flash/shockwave file on both IE and FF. Some websites cannot cause it to crash at all, Youtube, for instance, but other websites like GameTrailers cause the problem in hand.

I've tried installing and reinstalling them many times, but the problem persists to this day.

If anyone could help me to resolve this, I would be monumentally grateful.

Thanks,
Alex.

uninstall it.

Use this tool to do so:

http://download.macromedia.com/pub/f...ash_player.exe

Now, use your browsers for a while (I know it'll be tough without flash but make it so) are you still getting crashes? If so, go to Event viewer and review any errors. Paste the details here for more info.

Good luck.
