Every browser I have (Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Internet Explorer) all crash when trying to play any Netflix or YouTube video. Additionally, I have had a dialog box appear telling me Shockwave had become unresponsive and asking me if I'd like to end that process. Netflix, judging by the "Silverlight has stopped working" message I received on the few times the entire browser doesn't crash, uses Silverlight, whatever that is. YouTube uses Flash. The only clue I have is I just updated my video card software to "AMD Catalyst 12.1."

I have an AMD Radeon HD 6800 Series, and I'm running Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

My System

There are known Netflix/Silverlight/FF issues. I've seen numerous work arounds, but it's generally recommended to use Netflix in IE (as Silverlight is a MS product).

Aside from that, it sounds like there is an underlying OS/registry/driver issue.

Troubleshoot one browser/issue at a time and provide the exact errors.

What does the "Android" folder in flash drive do ? The special files inside any use ? I can delete them and the folder ? It always creates one when I connect it to my Curtis LT7029 Android tablet. Can I make it so it won't make a folder when I connect the two together or I have to...

[SOLVED] Does Hotspot Shield just work for web browsers?
Does a VPN like Hotspot Shield (which installs to your hard drive) also obscure your public IP for running processes that connect to the web, or does it just work for web browsers?
