Most common? Disable hardware acceleration and use other

But first, yes it can have something to do with your PC configuration. Adobe's choice to use hardware acceleration is exposing issues in video drivers and sometimes the PC itself. Everyday users appear to be flummoxed over this one.

Try this on google (plenty of articles to choose from) -> Disable Hardware Acceleration in Chrome.

Chrome and Adobe Flash, like mixing oil and water

Google Chrome's design and the way it handles flash streams is the cause although it can also be the settings as Bob mentioned as well. Chrome creates multiple connections at the same time for each new tab you open and can be seen if you have Comodo Firewall by clicking on "View Active Connections". As chrome creates these connections, it will chew through your memory resources extremely quickly and eventually if you have Chrome open for extended amounts of time, the Flash Plug-In will crash.

I recommend Mozilla Firefox as a great alternative to Google Chrome, you can pretty much kiss those "flash-crash" screens goodbye as Mozilla rarely has issues with flash streams.

Thank You

Thanks for the additional info. Was very helpful. I will try what Bob(if I am allowed first name terms) suggested. I use the AVG antivirus, I found Commodo Dragon a bit of a problem, It slows down my system loading. Probably too thorough. I use XP pro. Even though in another partition I have windows 7 Ultimate I found too slow for my liking, I felt it only LOOKS good, my son disagrees by the way lol.
