    Hi, I am having a very frustrating problem with my PC. I think its the Flash but I'm really not sure.
    I notice when I watch live streams on Ustream, or when I watch stuff on Youtube, that is when my problems arise... Along with just plain freezing up, I also get "Not Responding" notice alot.. Then the screen flashes images of videos I watched earlier, its like layered too, so I mean I will see images of 3 to 4 different things that Ive watched.... Very Very frustrating...
    I hope this makes sense.....Someone Please help....!!

    Do you have the latest version of the Adobe Flash Player?

    Right-click inside a running video and select Settings...

    Once in there, select the Display tab and uncheck the "Enable hardware acceleration" box:

    Might be worth a try. :)

    Is this usually a one time thing...? Or do I do that every time I watch something..?
    Thanks

    Ok, I went to do that and it was already unchecked......?
    Is there a Firefox add-on or something that would help, or maybe one that I should have added that I don't have....?
