Default Adobe Flash 10.1 Crashing in Firefox

I'm getting daily NVIDIA driver crashes after I updated my Adobe Flash to 10.1 for both IE and Firefox. My main browser is Firefox. It's pretty annoying as I lose my GPU WU for F@H, and my background becomes black. I never had this problem before.

sounds like a comment for the troubleshooting section. My advice, system restore and disable automatic updates for all things.

Ah yes it should be over there. Please move it over there please.

How would system restore and automatic updates have an effect? It's clearly Flash acting up...

System restore would hopefully put you back to a point prior to installing the adobe upgrade, and updates might have a solution to your problem.

I thought System Restore screws up your computer more than it does help. It screwed me over before

Regardless, I'll try it. Thanks for the tip.

Hm so far so good.

I was actually saying DISABLE the automatic updates for ALL things (windows, adobe, java, google, ect...) exception being your security scanner of course. I dont mean you shouldnt update, but if you manually update, and you start having problems, you'll likely know exactly what happend. where as if there are 10 things automatically updating, you'll never know what it was that caused the issue, on top of that your computer will probly run like crap.
