    I have my Flash/plug-in settings set to "on demand" so I won't worry about it.

    I fully expected it, I really did. Just not this fast.

    What is it going to take to prove to the drooling masses that this is not a good technology?
    Adobe products just get more bloated and less safe.

    Sorry, I know..... style over substance (sans security).

    No the most recent update did not fix this. Adobe is expecting to release a fix around 09/27/2010.

    I don't have too many problems with crashes with Flash, but I almost always have lag and crashes (reboot PC crashes) with Silverlight when trying to watch Netflix. It usually works for a few hours, but then I start having problems. And when you have to work a 16 hour shift in the switchboard, you kinda need the movies to keep from falling asleep.

    Are you serious? Do you think this is the first piece of software where a security flaw has been found? I guess XP, Mac OS, Android, Firefox, (and basically every other piece of software ever made) are also not "good technology".
