    I found this:

    On Windows 8, Internet Explorer 10 includes a built-in Adobe Flash Player.[32] Microsoft and Adobe worked together to ensure that the version of Adobe Flash included with Internet Explorer 10 does not drain the battery or impact performance in negative ways.[32] In the "Metro" version of Internet Explorer, only some of the features of Adobe Flash will be included for battery life, performance and security purposes.[33] Some features that do not work well with touch have also been removed from the "Metro" version of Internet Explorer. However, originally, not all websites can use Adobe Flash in the "Metro" version of Internet Explorer as Microsoft and Adobe maintain a list of approved websites that are, reportedly, video content and some games.[33] In the desktop version of Internet Explorer 10, all of the features of Adobe Flash are available.[33]
    On March 12, 2013 Microsoft changed this behavior from allowing only sites on a whitelist to display flash content, to allowing all sites to display flash content except those on a curated Compatibility View (CV) list (blacklist) maintained by Microsoft.[34]
    IE 10 crashes all the time.
    I don't like or use it.
    Opera is good.

    Thanks
    Maybe using software rendering instead of GPU would help ?

    Using software rendering seems to have fixed the problem. Thanks for the suggestion.
