Adobe Flash and/or javascript problems in IE8

    I am pretty sure that my "explorers" (I use many different computers with
    IE8) are reporting every bit of hangs that I am suffering on a daily basis. I
    am also sure that lots of people at Miscrosoft are looking at error reports
    and are fully aware of hangs (I can't be just me).
    For that reason I can't believe that as of today they (you) haven't reached
    a common solution for all of those problems. As I said they are far too
    common and not related to a specific site or sites.
    So please, raise a little bit your game and find a solution quick, I don't
    want to use Firefox or Chrome, I don't like them.

    Come on, guys!

    P.s.: Adobe is killing you!

    Hi Wellhung,

    We are not Microsoft. Just hapless community volunteers. I believe that MS
    receives some 50Gb of error reports a day and I know that they are up to the
    task of monitoring and correcting issues that occur with their software.
    (eg. Windows 7 has all the bells and whistles to correct incompatibility
    issues automatically).

    Microsoft have a competing product to Flash, Silverlight. You can always
    remove Adobe products from your machine and be done with it (no Flash Ads,
    some streaming 'videos' will not play etc...) and install Silverlight to
    only view some of the newer web sites (MSN Video, some Youtube, some AOL
    videos) that have taken the new platform on. You can disable the Shockwave
    Flash object from the IE Addons Manager to block it in IE, and then use
    another browser to view your sites that use it. (this may not block all
    'Flash' though).


    Adobe has nothing to do with us here. We are volunteers and have no
    influence or affiliations with Microsoft or Adobe. Adobe Flash is over 10
    years old. All software eventually goes to bit heaven. Software product
    lifecycles are usually 3 years, closely matching hardware improvements and
    depreciation rates.

    Regards.

    Typical PA Bear response... He is undoubtedly the worst MS MVP in Newsgroups.
    His responses are either redundant, confusing and like this one, a
    non-response
    using bad language. With all the problems associated with IE not being able to
    open Flash programs without installing Flash/Acitve X each time, he knows
    exactly what this poster is talking about. He doesn't have an answer so uses
    a condescending remark whish is no help as a reply.. I think the MS in his
    case stands for "MOST STUPID"

    The latest flash/IE issue happened to me (Windows Ultimate 64) and I had to
    uninstall 10r42_34 and go back to 10r32_18. It was the same issue as 3 times
    before over a 2 year period. That is, flash causes explorer to stop
    responding and the error is in the flash ocx.
    <fwiw>

    Hey PA Bear You are Most Awesome as MS MVP Good Advice! Contact Support! I
    have been playing around with this one and what I have found out so far is
    that adobe has added some nasty script to block hackers. That what microsoft
    actually got blamed for was secretly adobe. Problem is there is no fix for
    people running certain browers like windows 8 as of yet. You can read about
    it in the adobe forums. I have seen that in windows 8 it has somehow disabled
    javascript but if you do it very carefully but clicking on the actual site
    and then doing refresh you can enable some of it just not all. It is
    definately a work in progress. Love ya PA Bear!

    Maybe more users will dump Adobe Reader and move to another PDF viewer, like
    PDF-Xchange.
