I noticed that when viewing Flash videos the "RAS Async" adapter is called upon and shows up in device manager (this is hidden, so you have to show all devices first). This is one such videos: http://www.channel4.com/programmes/the-daily-show-with-jon-stewart/4od
. Replicable on two computers both using Windows 7 X64 and have the latest Flash version (11.3.300.257) installed and all latest Microsoft updates installed.
When I restarted, the adapter disappear but when I try playing a flash video (such as the Daily Show video), the adapter shows up. I didn't notice this behavior with past flash player or at the very least before the update.
