    Flash advertisements killing my browser...

    Using Vista 32bit. Precisely configured PC. 6 months old, rarely ever crashes. After some investigating one or more of the flash advertisements on the forum page are killing my IE to where it has to be forcefully shut down. How do I know this? Event viewer of course. Has happened before to my mother computer also when trying to browse quikcly on the site. All related to flash advertisements.

    I am using the new Google Chrome browser - works for me.

    You may want to head on down to Adobe and get the latest version of Flash though, fixed a lot of issues for me when I had Flash troubles.

    Just use Mozilla Firefox with Adblock Plus add-on, and you're trouble free.

    Another one for Firefox. Never a problem with this site.

    If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, we have at least to consider the possibility that we have a small aquatic bird of the family Anatidae on our hands.

    Your first problem = IE

    Vista with Firefox here and no issues.
