  1. i am running windows 7 32 bit 4 gigs ram due core 3.2 ghz proccesor 1gig graphics card 500 gig hard drive.

    My issue is that any 3 of my browsers fire fox which is my number 1 google chrome and ie when i play a vid on you tube it frezzes my browser and says flash player has crashed.

    So this is what i have tried after 2 day's of googling and trying.

    1) uninstalled all adobe programs including add ons and reinstaled from adobe site
    2) uninstal reinstal browsers
    3) uninstal reinstal audio drivers as their was a post about it now after doing this it seemed to work for a few seconds then back to not working
    4) did a registry reboot in case somethiong had changed
    5) did a system restore

    none of these worked i did notice i was not able to unistal adobe air exe it just hangs and does nothing and i have to go into services and end it.

    any help would be awesome thanks in advance
