  3. While Vista doesn't crash with Flash on my system, Internet Explorer is
    EXTREMELY unstable with Flash enabled. And even after updating to the latest
    version today, it took under 5 minutes for it to crash again. So while it's
    always good to have the most up-to-date software, Flash on Vista is flat-out
    awful. Unfortunately, it's nearly impossible to browse the web these days
    without running into a site that requires Flash.
    Shame on web developers/advertisers for depending so much on Flash, shame on
    Adobe for releasing something this unstable, and shame on Microsoft for
    having a browser than can't gracefully host plug-ins.

    Try uninstalling Windows Vista, reinstalling Windows XP. This worked on 2
    computers I bought recently. Fixed all my problems.

    I'm thinking your a minority, and your flash installation is also out of date.
    There's nothing wrong with flash and vista.

    You call it giving up, I call it 'UPgrading' my computer to one that works.
    Regardless of what you call it, my life has been so much simpler since
    ditching Vista. My blood pressure probably dropped a few points too.
