Lots of Hulu Crashes

Hulu is crashing an awful lot, despite my having "fixed" the problem through Windows Error Reporting. I have a feeling it may have to do with an add-on I use, but have no real way of determining that as it goes off on its own. Plus, this add-on has done its thing with Hulu on before and the only effect it had was minimizing the screen, so that's not a solid lead.

There was one other "solution" to the problem proffered by Windows and that was uninstalling FFDShow in the registry. Upon reboot, it would most likely reinstall itself, or at least install an alternative that would keep it from crashing, but because that solution was specific to Windows Explorer crashing and not Hulu, I don't want to fool with it.

One thing I noticed is that once Hulu crashes, you can make out the faint outline of the "Share this on Facebook" box after it crashes. I wonder if that has something to do with it, meaning the problem is server-side and not client-side (on my end).
