    Google Chrome AND Mozilla Firefox freeze my whole PC.


    Hello, I've been having problems with Google Chrome's freezes for quite a while now.
    They are random, first you see that your browser doesn't respond anymore, but then neither does the PC.
    You wait up to 3 minutes, and everything works out. But that's not really ideal.

    So, in order to see what was wrong with my problem, I thought that I should get Mozilla Firefox.

    But as I have seen, that does not change anything

    Please help!

    Clear your Adobe Flash cache in the Control Panel, online at Adobe's link to do that, or with Ccleaner.

    If you use the link, click "Delete all sites" on the 7th tab (next to last.)

    David, I already had that setting like you said.
    MasterChief, I just did it, now I'm browsing, hoping that it won't happen again.

    Check Brink's top sticky thread in Crash subforum. Run the tool and post results here. Even if there have been no bsods, it will have very helpful info anyhow.
