Twice in the past week I have tried to access a flash video in Google Chrome and my machine has completely rebooted. (e.g.: )

I've done some Googling but have not seen any other users reporting similar problems.

Has anyone here experienced something similar?

I am on a corporate machine with XP SP3 and we do have a fairly aggressive ad blocker on the network so it may just be something internal but any feedback is appreciated.

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Version numbers of both Chrome and Flash Player would probably be useful. Also, if you try again to watch the same video, does your system crash again, or is it unpredictable? – CarlF Feb 15 '11 at 19:39
Thanks CarlF. Chrome - 9.0.597.98 Flash Yes it will do it will do it every time. – Eric Feb 18 '11 at 12:49
Almost always, reinstalling flash fixes this. – Brad May 30 '11 at 15:04
