I have Windows 7 and recently, out of no where, I started getting messages that my Shockwave Flash Player has crashed. This happens on all browsers, Google Chrome, Firefox and IE, which I have all the most recent updated versions of. At first, I wasn't able to watch videos or do anything that required flash, including running skype. After uninstalling it and installing it a few times I was able to watch videos again, but I am still unable to run Skype (I try to sign in and it stays on the "Signing In" screen or tells me that it cannot connect). I also cannot use programs that I would use webcam on either (I tried Stickam and Tinychat). Whenever I go to one of those websites it freezes for about five minutes and then tells me that the Flash plug-in has crashed, with a sad puzzle piece. I have tried just about everything I can think of from uninstalling and reinstalling Skype, restarting my computer numerous times and uninstalling Adobe Flash with the uninstaller tool and reinstalling it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

If Flash is working except for certain apps then the apps are the problem. I don't use Skype but my guess is they have a help forum so you might be better off trying there. It could be a known issue.
