I have been using Win 7 since the time it was out in beta stages.It's a wonderful OS no doubt about that.But since 2-3 months i have been experiencing a strange problem regarding flash components on some specific sites or rather some specific pages on the sites.
The problem appears only on e-sites like :
These are 3 i use.
If i browse Ebay and Amazon its perfectly fine..no issues..the minute i click on account/login/my account..everything becomes abnormal.
Pages takes eternity to load up
All the pictures /tabs/animations disappear
All and all its like flash Just suddenly stopped working
Paypal does not open up. The site loads in 2 minutes with the problems i face when i click on account on the other 2 sites.
And yes I have reinstalled flash again and again..starting from a 4 month old flash to the newest one.Standalone installer.
P.S- The Adobe site dlm also doesn't do anything. it just loads and never downloads anything and then Firefox/IE8 stops responding for 2-3 minutes.
I installed shockwave / All flash beta versions from standalone installers..the problem remains...
I have no problem in flash otherwise - Youtube/Yahoo all works like charm.
I got an OK 1MBPS(Quiet fast in my part of the world) connection..and a quiet fast 1700$ Computer..So hardware and net connection is not an issue.
What i think its the security of Win 7 + ESET NOD32 causing some problems becoz only the e sites are getting affected.
I have Windows 7 Ultimate 64 BIT Retail.
Thats the problem..nothing seem to download from adobe site...whenever i click on a link to download..firefox hangs for abt 40-50 secs then resumes with a download window..and then doesn't download it.
No there is no compatibility button on the toolbar.
And yes even Uninstalling ESET NOD32 Did not help.
I even put the macromed folder in syswow64 directory as excluded folders in windows defender but still no use.
So Guyz, hear this out.
today i reinstalled Windows 7.
The first thing i did was install flash player and started IE snd checked the amazon payapl thing...
U wont blv it still had the same issue...
I have a original microsoft dvd so dvd cant be faulty.
what is the problem can anyone help me.
I have a similar issue, and believe it or not, its specifically related to this website. There is a script running that causes the browser to stop responding. After a few minutes i get a prompt informing me that the script is causing the browser to slow down, continue to run the script and the browser may crash. I run windows 7 64 bit. Using mainly IE8 32b since the new Firefox 3.6.3 is causing issues and my Norton toolbar doesn't work with the 64b IE8. Wish I could help solve your problem but I may be in the same boat here as I notice the only process running that seems I can identify is Flash Util 10e, Adobe Flash Player Helper 10.0r45 runs.
Hey,its quite an old post bro...
Btw i had solved the issue..
The flash and browser all were fine..
the problem was in the DNS my isp was providing...
I changed the setting in my modem..and instead of dns provided by ISp i put in my own preferred dns..
everything worked fine after that...
I have exactly the same problem. Have changed my DNS settings on my router (rather than ISP assigning), following guidance from DNS advantage. I am still getting the problem logging into sites such as eBay, Amazon, paypal etc..
