I'm getting this damn thing more and more often:



I usually close a bunch of pages, if I have a bunch up and it often helps but not always. I gather it's too much RAM being used at once, or . . . not really sure.

I'd make sure you close all your browser windows. Update to the latest flash - check for malware.

Use Ninite.com do download a flash update installer - it will mean you don't get their hitch-hikers - if you cannot find it - ask me - I can upload a copy of my ninite installer that updates flash, adobe read and Java - the three programs which if left un-updated, will let in more malware than anything else.

Also - check how much RAM you have - these days 6-8 is recommended for Windows 8 you don't say which version of windows you're using.

I recommend closing EVERY browser at least every couple of days - Firefox uses up to 1.6Gb of RAM on my machine after a while - I'm getting ready to swtich - I've been playing around with Chrome Canary - the nightly build of their new cutting edge chrome... liking it a lot so far, but chrome runs 4 processes to do bookmark sharing etc, even if I don't use chrome that session.


One more thing - grab a copy of ccleaner - look at your list of startup items and pare the list down...

Install ccleaner from the "slim" installer:

(again - no hitchhikers if you use the slim installer)

Or something like that.

I think that translates to "you are too old to watch this pornographic video"

Maybe that's it. There's a sensor that knows my pulse and blood pressure, and when I'm in a danger zone, a sort of 'DO NOT STIMULATE,' the machine does it for my own good.

Damn.
