    Hello!

    My Internet Explorer 7 on Windows Vista with SP1 has been crashing mulitple times a day for about a month (including just a few minutes ago) . No crashes occur if I am running it with the option "no add-ons enabled" . The onliest 3rd party add-on I have is the latest version of the popular Adobe Flash player and I think it is the culprit here .

    Sometime before the crashes started IE has informed me that a flash object may cause a delay , if I want to "miss" it .

    Have you noticed such behaviour ? I am starting to think that everything that Adobe touches early or later gets seriously corrupted...

    YouTube works . I can't say exactly when IE crashes but most often upon close or when opening/closing tabs , sometimes upon loading pages (any pages).

    The latest ,too , downloaded from www.adobe.com

    HiTech boy, it's a known problem between IE7 in Vista and Adobe Flash player 10 (Adobe Forum). You have 2 options: go back to Version 9 or use Toggle Flash.

    You're welcome, HiTech_boy! Don't give up on Toggle Flash, because that app has worked on my clients' PCs who had the same IE7 flash problems.

    Nope, have not noticed anything like it here with IE7 and Flash 10 latest on Vista x64 SP1 etc. And I use IE7 all the time as my main browser. Guess I am having good luck... :)
