PC crashes during Facebook games eg Treasure Isle

  Alto-ell 09:37 14 May 2010

I have a very annoying problem with my PC in that it frequently crashes while I'm playing a number of games on Facebook.

The games that effect the PC most are Treasure Isle, Tiki Farm and My Tribe - I hardly bother with the last 2 as my PC crashes almost as soon as I start to play them. Also Tiki Resort and sometimes Superpoke Pets. I use Google Chrome as my browser.

My PC is 3 years old has:-
500GB dual core pentium processor
Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit SP2
GeForce 7900GS
DirectX Version 10

I would appreciate any advice on how to stop these crashes!

Does it crash when you use a different browser?

Yes, it's even worse with Firefox and I don't go anywhere near Windows Explorer...
