    dwm.exe stopped working.


    Greetings,

    I am stuck with this problem where I get the error message about "dwm.exe has stopped working".

    Now as far as I know it only comes up if I am streaming something on the net using flash player and while using Google Chrome.

    Tried using it with IE allso but then I dont get the message. Anyone else got same issue? and/or has some way to solve it?

    As this has already been identified as a problem for many Chrome users, I can only suggest that you try and run Chrome with a minimum number of Windows open simultaneously and see if that fixes your issue. You also might want to check your RAM allocation in Task Manager when this happens to make sure you have adequate free RAM available at the time of the incident.

    Are you running Chrome in Windows 8 mode ?

    Edit--
    Disable the Chrome Pepper Flash & use regular Flash.
