    IE 10 Freezes

    Whenever I try watching videos in IE 10 I after a minute or so of watching my system freezes and I have to reboot. This also happens if I watch videos in firefox. Any ideas on what could be causing this to happen?

    My details are in my system specs.

    Got something similar on Win7 but was fixed after a cab signature failure from MS Update site was fixed. I've updated some drivers in the meantime and all is well now. It only happened when I was downloading / installing updates.

    Whenever I try watching videos in IE 10...
    I saw that happen once:

    Any graphic driver crashes and recovery? Try to look in Event Viewer (note the time when it happens).

    It can be one of the drivers (graphic or sata controllers) or just Flash Player (look for updated versions).

    I suggest mentioning this in the Crashes and Debugging section. There are a few there that do wonders.
