    Computer crashes at flash video websites

    It all started on monday when i clicked a youtube link in the steam forums. My computer freezes for a minute then turns into the blue screen of death. Now, when I try to go to youtube or hulu or anyone site like that my computer crashes.
    The only change I noticed is that a process called plugin-container.exe starts running whenever I open up a site that requires Flash, which happened maybe a month ago.

    Is this happening to anyone else? or is my computer fucked up?

    Edit: Also, I mysteriously found McAfee security scan installed onto my computer. I don't know If the program is trustworthy.

    That suck for you man so no more video websites. If I was you I would either take it to a computer shop or just get an new or used computer or just don't use video or flash websites any more. And did you try disconneting it and then conneting it back again?

    Find it and delete it if it isnt necessary for your os's living. Judging by the name it probably contains certain plugins so they dont work. [s:11117dvg]But thats just a guess..[/s:11117dvg] http://www.exedb.com/plugin-container.html

    delete it and then if firefox fucks up reisntall firefox. Also scan it before you delete it.

    Lol Thanks.

    I uninstalled McAfee and did a virus scan with avast!. Didn't find any viruses so I opened youtube on Google Chrome this time and my computer still crashed.
    Is Google Chrome supposed to open 4 different chrome.exe processes?
