Flash causing AppHang errors in browser and video player crashes RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have had these problems ever since installing windows 7 in October. The problem is always with videos, in any browser (I always use firefox) when I go to watch any sort of flash video it will work fine for a while and then randomly when I go to play another flash video or flash content the browser will hang. Even if i restart the browser flash video or flash content will not work anymore, it will continue to freeze unless I restart the computer. Another issue aswell is playing videos from my hard drive, I open them and the player will stop responding (AppHang) just like the browser... This is a constant problem and it is very annoying. Often this happens after I open the lid of my laptop after it was off. Is there anytype of software that can monitor the processes and provide me with the cause? Anything that will help show me where the root of the issue is.

    I have researched the issue tirelessly but no effective solutions! I do not have browser addons either

    Here are the details of an instance that just happened in firefox:

      A problem caused this program to stop interacting with Windows.

  • Hi,


    You may update the BIOS and the chipset drivers for Windows 7 to test the issue first.


    If it does not work, you may also uninstall and reinstall Adobe Flash Player to check the result.


    Does it work?
