He's absolutely correct! The only time I have issues is due to flash locking and my page freezes.I call ActiveX, ActiveXXX because that's where most of the problems arise and get passed along to the unsuspecting.
Get a link from a friend you trust in email, click it, and it says you need to download an update to flash, what it really is, is a trojan hidden within the prog.Oh, and the email you got from a friend, wasn't even sent by him, it was generated at the very site that told you to upgrade.I am very wary of sites that say you need to upgrade to a newer version of flash, of course they are always willing to do it for you, all you need to do is click, so they can steal and take over your pooter.I haven't updated Adobe in months, I got tired of an update every week usually a large download at that.
hahahahaa I'm using that.....Totally. No serious website nowadays is asking you to update Flash.
OH oh oh, I almost forgot. Remember I said the browser was hanging, just spinning and not finishing loading?I hit cntr alt del and closed down non essentials and it was still hanging, then when I closed adobe....Miraculously it was fine. Normally I have adobe off, but I had viewed several PDF files and it became unstable, that was the cause, probably flash within Adobe running.
