I have no idea how to fix my current problem which is causing a great annoyance as my computer shuts down multiple times daily. Here’s what I know. Not only does my computer crash but my Flash Player is constantly crashing with Firefox displaying the message “the Adobe flash plug in has crashed”. I have the latest version of the flash plug (220.127.116.115) in installed as well as the latest version of Firefox, (version 36.0). In response to these crashes, I followed whatever info I could to solve the problem with Flash, which included: updating all my drivers, plug ins are up to date, I have no viruses or spyware, and Windows are up to date. I have restarted Firefox in safe mode and the crashes keep happening. When looking at my reliability history in the Action Center, it shows over and over again that the all critical issues are due to “Plugin container for Firefox stopped working” with no solution offered.
What I find interesting is that while I’m working on my machine, Flash crashes but not my machine. The PC seems to shut down on being inactive for a period of half an hour. It also crashes whether I’m using Firefox or not. Also strange was this was happening before I installed and reformatted a hard drive and it’s still happening after a clean Windows 7 Prof install.
I am trying to keep Flash and Firefox on my machine. Help, what can I do to solve this issue. I am at a loss as to what to try next.
