Hi, I have moved your thread here from the Windows 8 forum.

Is the problem still happening? Are you running the latest version of Flash player? If not, update and report back. Otherwise try completely uninstalling and reinstalling it, and report back.

You can test and see what version flash you have by going HERE. Just follow the steps and if you need a newer version it will help you install it. If no joy do as Troy suggested and uninstall Flash completely and then install the newest version.
