My flash player crashes on every website I go to. I've restarted the computer, I've uninstalled and reinstalled Adobe and still crashing on every page. The plug-in is enabled so I don't know what else to try. I've never had this problem, the problem just started today.

First things first, if you haven't already, power the computer off, wait a few seconds, and power it back on.  This allows all of the components to fully discharge and reset to a normal state.

If the problem persists, I'm going to need some more details in order to provide you any useful advice:

And it happens on every website, it's not just a certain page. I had to disable it on Yahoo just so I can check my mail but like I said it happens on every website. I use firefox. I tried chrome, but it still crashes and I have the latest version of flash

Please try disabling hardware acceleration.  Instructions are in the guide below:

If that doesn't work, in Firefox, type about:crashes in the address bar.

Click a few links to submit them to Mozilla.  You don't need to wait for them to fully process -- it will happen in the background.

Copy the addresses of the resulting pages, and paste them here.  I'd be happy to take a look.

Thanks!
