    Adobe Flash Player keeps crashing! -_- Halpp! :(

    Hey guys, so it seems the most unstable part about my system is the stupid flash player! It keeps crashing, like every time I load a site on Firefox or Chrome that has a video player, it'll crash after about 15-20 minutes.

    I've tried every solution on the Adobe forums, including turning hardware acceleration off, but it still keeps crashing and it's driving me crazy! All I try to do is watch a movie or listen to some music on YouTube, but nope! Flash Player has other plans! Ugghhh! -_-

    Has anyone else experienced this problem? Or possibly have a fix to it? Any help at all would be much appreciated!


    The system I'm using is:

    Asus ROG G750JZ
    Intel i7-4710HQ
    32GB RAM
    Nvidia GeForce GTX 880M
    Windows 8.1 Pro


    I've had issues with flash player crashing on my old laptop, but usually on my old one it wouldn't crash unless I had like 15+ YouTube tabs open and buffered at the same time. I just bought the G750JZ recently, gaming wise it's overkill awesome, but it's really annoying me how I can't seem to be able to watch a movie or be on YouTube without having to restart the browser every 15 minutes. Also, my old laptop had very inferior specs compared to this, so I don't understand how my old one could handle Flash Player just fine, but this one can't. I'm guessing it was the OS, my old one had Windows 7, while this has 8.1, but that's just my guess.

    Here's to hoping someone has a solution, I suppose.

    Cheers!

    Hey, yeah I have everything up to date! After doing extensive searches on the internet, I've found a lot of other people experiencing the same problem with Flash Player. Unfortunately that's all I could find, people in the same boat as I, but no solutions.

    Have you tried in the latest FireFox, going to Tools-Add-ons and 'search' Flash Player or YouTube. They're are a lot of compliments or fix Add-ons to YouTube regarding it's player. In IE11, it's Tools-Manage Add-ons.

    If its simply that version you can check on adobes site to see if they have an older versions area and find the last working one and during install select to find updates but don't install without permissions, that way it won't simply reinstall the broke one


    Sucks that flash player actually removes the installer once done or you'd probly have older version installers in a folder somewhere
