    I have installed Windows XP, Windows Vista Home Basic and Windows 7 Beta build 7000 on my 2.0GHz 13inch Unibody Macbook and on all three operating systems web browsers crash when watching flash video (Youtube).

    Browsers I have tried:

    IE 7
    IE 8
    Firefox 3.0.8
    Opera 9.6
    Chrome 2
    Safari 3.2

    I get white and black lines appear randomly on the video and pops in the audio. Then, the web browser will crash.

    Is the same for ALL versions of Windows mentioned, and I have tried reinstalling Flash player, every time.

    Any help fixing this problem?

    Apple's new (December 2008) trackpad driver does a lot of funky stuff. If you're installing that update, I recommend rolling back to the version on the disk. For me, it kills any audio playing, blue screens the computer, and crashes browsers playing flash.

    I am having the same problem. Which update do I have to roll back to an older version for?

    If you go into Add/Remove programs in Windows, and remove all of the apple trackpad packages, then install the drivers from the OSX install DVD again. This will fix your problem. :D
