Not sure if this is the right forum, however a few days ago I realized my Google Chrome was having issue with Shockwave flash.  I got a popup saying there was an issue and it would not respond.  Then I tried firefox and got same issue.  I tinkered around with flash, removed and re installed it however when I attempted to play a flash video online, it displayed only a picture and not play video. 


So  I attempted to play a WMV file on my computer and that too ended up freezing and slowed my system down where I had to exit out of media player. 


I ran Malware and Virus scans, and I dont seem to have any issues there unless I missed something. 


Also, I did hear something about Flash being replaced by html5 soon.
