New graphics card causing hard freezes when using flash

I recently bought an MSI Twin Frozr III 7850 OC and whenever I open any kind of Flash video (x64 BTW) the computer freezes and sound becomes distorted. The only way to regain control of the system is to reboot it. I have no other troubles with it, plays games great, runs quiet, etc.

Does anyone have a solution? I am running AMD catalyst 10.4, reinstalled driver multiple times, to no effect.

My system specs, if they're relevant:
Intel i5 2400
MSI Twin Frozr III 7850 OC
Asus P8P67-M Pro
Corsair GS 600W
Hitachi CoolSpin 1.5TB
Windows 7 Ultimate 64Bit SP1

    There is a Flash cleaner if I remember rightly...to clean EVERY file AFTER Flash is uninstalled...

    All the best Brett :)
  6. Well I'm coming off of a brand new windows installation on a brand new HDD. I don't think I have any old files to remove. I'll give it a shot though, what's the program called?
  7. Was there a solution to this? I am having the same issue.
  8. Just got a new computer for my wife, also a 7850 Radeon and it's having exactly the same issue, crashes on flash videos on youtube, but only flash ones, HTML5 video works fine.
