    Well, everytime I try and load a flash movie, my browser freezes. I have uninstalled, re-installed both flash and shockwave many times. Restart PC, restart browser. Nada. Once I try and load a flash movie it locks up the browser only, and all tabs. But another window will work fine. I can move mouse, but get the little "im thinking" circle.

    On both IE8 and Firefox. I have the latest Nvidia drivers, just started the other day. Windows is up-to-date, IE is up-to-date, firefox was brand new tonight (tried it as a fix). IE64 doesnt freeze, but thats also cause there is no flash for 64bit.

    Any Ideas? I have scanned for viruses, I have done local, and online scans, I have removed any spyware/mal ware with spybot S&D.
