    I have Sapphire R9 290 Tri-X GPU (drivers 14.4), Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit and newest Flash Player. This problem occurs in both Firefox 32 beta 6, and Internet Explorer 11. When I'm watching videos on Youtube or similar websites, I can't run GPU-Z 0.7.9 because computer immediately freezes (GPU-Z 0.7.8 works perfectly fine). Flash games or flash advertisements on sites doesn't cause freezing, only videos are causing freezing. Is this problem happening only to me ?

    Hardware Acceleration feature in my browsers was the source of my problems. I turned it off, and now everything works ok.

    does the problem go away when you turn off the sensor refresh in background?

    No the problem is still there. Only turning off Hardware Acceleration in browsers helps.

    Can't replicate. Any chance your card is overclocked too high?

    I didn't overclocked GPU, everything else (games, benchmark programs) works perfectly fine, the problem is only with GPU-Z 0.7.9. When I run GPU-Z first and then start watching Youtube everything is ok, but if I do this backwards, computer freezes. GPU-Z 0.7.8 worked ok, only this new version is causing problems.
