Adobe Flash 10.1 beta has an odd behavior, when you view a Flash content in browser, the disk would start thrashing with an alarming amount of access to NPSWF32.dll. “Its because some code within NPSWF32.dll keeps calling SetUnhandledExceptionFilter, repeatedlyi. Internally, this API causes Windows to query the file on disk (for some odd reason). To disable this feature – and work around the bug – simply create a mms.cfg text file in the C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash folder (Syswow64 for 64-bit users) with the line CrashLogEnable=0. Restart your browser (or application housing Flash) and you’re done. If only Bugs=0 would work. You can vote on/watch reported bug by accessing Adobe’s bug tracker (free sign up required),” revealed.
