Hello. I'm not sure if there are a lot of issues with the latest update of adobe flash player. 10.1.53.63. But every time I try to play an offline flashgame my computer crashes. Or if I'm playing browser games(facebook poker) it crashes the browser(firefox or chrome). I'm using windows XP, sp3. I have 1 GB of ram and and a 2.1GHZ amd athelon 3000+ processor. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the player several times and same with the browsers that are fully updated. I'm assuming by now that it is an update issue but from there forum sounds like they won't admit it. don't want to try an older player, cause there updates are usually security issues.
any other ideas. Also noticed when flash is running my CPU usage climbs to 100%. for some reason in hogs all my resources. scanned for malware and viruses but computers clean
thanx

Check and see if all the old Adobe are removed. Most of the time the old ones are left behind when updating Adobe. I use Revo to remove all the Adobe and then download the new one. Use Revo carefully. Do it just like it tells you to do. This may or may not solve your problem but it will clean up a lot of junk. I get all my Adobe from there web site.

tried that and it still crashes. For some reason it won't let me install older flash versions anyway. Gives me warning that its not the latest browser and won't load.
any other ideas?

After removing all old Adobe flash it won't let you download the new one. Is this correct?

I don't play games on line so I can't help you there. Most of Adobe updates are security related. I would use the newest one only. I'm using the newest one with no problems but I say again I don't play games on line. Hang in there. There will be some one here at B/C that does play games that will be able to help you.
