For the past few weeks my web browser keeps freezing up on me and i get the message on top of the browser saying not responding. I thought my computer was all cluttered with files or cookies. So I reinstalled my windows 7. In the process deleting everything on my computer. I thought this was going to fix the problem but no luck. It is still doing the same thing.

It started happening to me when I updated Flashplayer. Not only did Firefox hang but sometimes it would also crash. I went into 'about:crashes' and checked the last 5 crash reports and every report said "plugin Shockwave Flash Version:11.9.900.117 Filename:NPSWF32_11_9_900_117.dll"

I uninstalled Firefox then reinstalled it and now it's working fine. Maybe it was an add-on that was upsetting Flashplayer. I now only install add-ons one at a time before testing them.
