Windows XP SP3 - IE 8 - Firefox - crashes when trying to play Flash video
Posted on 2011-03-20
I have a computer with Windows XP Professional SP3 and Internet Explorer 8. The whole system freezes and then auto-reboots when I try to look at Flash-videos on Youtube or Facebook. When trying to run the same Flash-videos in Firefox the same happens.
My own AVI-videos works well, and runs under Windows Media Player.
I have tried to uninstall Flash both automatic and manually and reinstalled it, but the same problem comes back.
Avast! antivirus is run (nothing found), Ad-Aware is run (some adware/malware are removed and/or quarantined), some "free" programs are removed, the register is cleaned with CCleaner and Nokia software is totally removed. But the problem is still there.
