Whenever I want to view a video online (YouTube, Hulu, flipvideo, etc.), I click the link/video and my browser crashes immediately. Any ideas on whats going on/how to fix it? Thanks.

What OS are you using? Have you checked Event Viewer to see what error messages occur at the same time?

Please go through the following steps:

1. Reinstall Internet Explorer 8
2. Install the latest version of Flash Player

*Have you also tried playing these videos on different browsers (Firefox, Opera, Chrome?)

*Do you have trouble watching videos offline, using Video/Media players?

I don't think it's a Flash problem. There's something else going on. The tipoff is that Flash for IE is different than Flash for Firefox. Did you check Event Viewer as suggested by Animal?
