Windows update crashes neobook

My Windows 10 system just performed an auto-update
(Security Update for Internet Explorer Flash Player for Windows 10 Version 1511 for x64-based Systems KB3132372)
and now Neobook crashes after a few minutes
External exception 80000003

I am using the official Neosoft site's WebBrowser sample application (to be sure it is not my coding error)
but if I go to the Adobe Flash Player website to check which Flash version is installed, the system crashes.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

Thanks

After the latest Win10 update I did some looking around and found that any website that uses the Flash Player (not HTML5) will automatically crash with the Neobook WebBrowser. (Don't even mention YouTube.) It was bad enough when Flash did not play on a few sites... but the sudden crash of every site with a Flash object is not acceptable. I guess Microsoft finally figured out what to do with the Flash problem: the new Adobe CrashPlayer... to get webmasters to switch real fast to HTML5. Will it work?

:cry:

I uninstalled Windows10 update KB3132372
and everything works again.....

Microsoft used to make lighthouses. Now they sell chrome flashlights trying to keep up with the smartphone market.
When they ruin the desktop no one will be able to write apps for smartphones. That dumb.


:wink:

There is no way to stop Win10 updates. It will install itself again?

Microsoft sure has been screwing things up lately. Unfortunately, unless someone has Bill Gates home phone number, I'm not sure what we can do. Hopefully, like the last MS screw up, they will issue a fix or Adobe will finally pull the plug on the disaster that Flash has become once an for all.

Unfortunately the Hide tool does not work for Win10 "Security" updates. Software that crashes your system and does not allow you to block or prevent it from downloading falls into the category of malicious malware - regardless of what sugar-coated name they may give it

The fact that they even acknowledge that a problem exists indicates that it is not "limited".

This is actually good news. It means there's a good chance that they will fix it. :shock:

Yes. I doesn't crash, although some embedded Flash Player objects on certain sites still don't play
