Hello everyone. Here is what is going on... My laptop (win 7 home prem, ASUS G60JX, i7 1.6ghz, nvidiaGTS360m) is having a weird freezing problem. When I go to view a youtube video that has that other looking player (its like... the bigger player?) all of a sudden my laptop just freezes completely. I have no option at that point other than to do a hard shut down. To be more specific, certain videos on youtube, for whatever reason, seem to be using a different looking player. It looks bigger than the normal one, and when they start playing for me, it usually has no sound (Also weird.) but now it just freezes when i come across one of those videos.
I wish I could post a link to a video that is doing it, but im concerned it'll just freeze again..

this also tends to happen when opening up audacity (beta version).

Something just isnt right here. and I have scanned numerous times malwarebytes/superantispyware and used glary ultilities. My PC is basically as clean as it can be right now. I just recently restored it back to factory settings, after feeling my laptop was just loaded with junk. I have my drivers up to date, and the registry seems to be clean / no errors. I ran a benchmark test that came back with great results as well.

any ideas?

Have you tried tinkering with any probable software conflict with Audacity and playing youtube videos? Try uninstalling the software and update/reinstall to the latest flash version for IE, Chrome and Firefox.
