100% CPU Usage Caused By Adobe Flash Plugin

    So i've been dealing with 100% CPU usage for the last 3 weeks. I'v
    narrowed down the cause to the Flash plugin for ANY browser, regardles
    of IE or Firefox

    *Here's the deal:

    Anytime Flash is loaded in the browser, the CPU shoot straight up t
    100% until you close the browser. I've google'd solutions for this. Th
    only one I've seen is the all FULL CONTROL for the Everyone user on tw
    of the Flash drives

    This does not work. So I tried something else

    I reformatted and started from scratch. As soon as the Flash plugin wa
    installed, BOOM, right to 100% CPU usage again. This happened on bot
    Vista x64 Ultimate w/ SP2 and a clean install of Windows 7 x64 Ultimat
    RTM (It's a legal copy.)

    *My desktop is a P4 3.2ghz with 3GB ram on a 80GB WD 10,000rpm sat
    drive. Plenty of power.

    *_Now_here's_a_weird_sidenote:_* I have a company laptop with Window
    XP x86 w/ SP2. Flash works fine. Both computers are on the same version
    The latest as of today from Adobe.com.

    Obviously the only difference besides OSes is I'm using 64-bi
    Vista/Win7 on the desktop. But because there is no 64-bit flash, only 3
    bit, they are using the same version

    Ok, thoughts? Suggestions

    1. Virus/Spyware/Malwar
    2. Other processes running (i tried when I did a clean install wit
    nothing installed

    Having the same issue on Win 7 x64 on my laptop, causes random browser
    crashes as well, have yet to find a solution, just another piece of crap
    from adobe, hopefully an update will fix it.

    I'm hoping that a 64-bit version of Flash will solve the program, bu
    they currently only have one for Linux. v10 is a CPU usage hog, and
    can't find what part of the v10 is causing the problems. v9 is les
    problems, but still the CPU usage issue

    What is the point of this? There isn't going to be a solution until adobe
    fixes their crap.

    There is no "bump" on Usenet. And since you didn't quote any of the original
    thread, no one here can help you. This is why:

    You are not posting on a real forum as you think you are and you didn't
    quote any of the thread to which you are replying. You are using a web
    interface that leeches Usenet posts and most of the rest of us are using
    real newsreaders. We don't see what you do. If you want to participate in
    Usenet, the better way is to set up a newsreader. This is very easy to do
    and I'll give you information about that below. If you prefer to use a
    forum, then here are two excellent ones:


    Since you are using a web interface, you may not realize that this is really
    a newsgroup. You will get far more out of this resource if you learn to use
    a newsreader. There are many good newsreaders for Windows, but you can use
    Outlook Express (XP) or Windows Mail (Vista) since you already have it. Here
    are some links to information about newsgroups:

    Obviously you can't use IE 64. Does this happen with FF, or just IE 32
