How To Fix Shockwave Flash Crashes In Google Chrome | Fix Shockwave Crashing | Shockwave Flash

Hello every one. Al here recording this video
to show you how to fix shockwave flash crashes in Google Chrome. There are many reasons that
cause the crash. In this video, I’ll discuss most of them, at least the ones that I know
of. First one we gonna go over is the fact that Google Chrome has flash drive installed,
integrated into it already, and your computer might have another flash file in the operating
system and what happens is when Chrome tries to use both of them at the same time it might
cause that crash thing. To check if that’s the case with you. Type in Chrome://plugins
and hit enter, it’ll bring you to this page, and what you gotta look for is where it says
Adobe flash player right here, and in my case as you can see I just have the one file and
not more than one. If your computer happens to have two files and if that’s the case you’ll
see something like this next to Adobe flash player and in some cases you might three files,
what you’ll have to do to fix the crashes is just keep one of those files enabled and
disable the other two and or the other one whatever the case is. If that doesn’t work,
try reversing them. Enable the disabled one and disable the enabled one and see if that
helps. That’s the first reason that causes the crashes. The second one, actually is that
you might have an outdated version of Chrome. To check if that is the case with you, you
go up here to the menu button, click on it, and as you can see in my case I need to upgrade
Google Chrome. If you see this message on your computer, that means also that you have
to update and you don’t have the latest Chrome version. Okay, I am not gonna do it now, because
I am trying to make this video as short as possible, because there are so many reasons
that cause the crash that we have to go over. Okay, and the third reason that might cause
that is, in Chrome there is settings. Actually there is an option that allows you to accelerate
hardware to, for better performance, and stuff like that. From the same menu button that
we have clicked on here. You go down to the settings, and all the way down here, you click
show advanced settings, and you scroll down almost all the way down to the bottom of the
page where you can see under system, you’ll see two options. This is the one you’re concerned
with. If this is checked, uncheck it, okay. That might fix the problem too. And, reason
number four is, you might have a lot of spyware and malware on your, in your browser. What
most people don’t realize is that the anti-virus software that you have on your computer is
stopping viruses but allowing spyware and malware into the browser which will cause
the crashes. So, what you have to do is scan your computer for spyware and malware and
remove them if any is found, and that also might take care of the problem. Reason number
five might be, if you have any software that is causing conflict with Chrome on your computer
or laptop the crashes also will occur, and to check if that’s the case with you. You
just remove this settings and type in conflicts and enter, and it’ll bring this up, and as
you can see in my case, no conflicts detected. If there is any software that’s causing conflict
with Chrome, you’ll see it right here. It’ll tell you which one it is. What’s advised to
do in that case is to update that software, disable it, or remove it altogether. But before
you do any of these things, please make sure that you know what you are doing and it’s
not gonna cause any malfunction to your computer. What I would advise you to do in this case
is, you can go to system restore and create a restore point before you do any changes.
Just in case anything goes wrong, you could always go back to system restore and that
will bring you back to the point just before you made the changes, and all the changes
that you made in case that cause any problems to your computer will be gone. Okay? Okay,
that was reason number five, we move on to reason number six. Reason number six is, it
might be that your computer is old or it doesn’t have enough memory in it, and if you upgrade
it and put in more memory in it, more, that will take care of the problem also, because
some of these, especially if you are into playing games online. Some of these sites
require a lot of memory to run properly, Okay, reason number seven might be, is, you go,
you wanna try using the incognito mode with Chrome as that will disable the extensions
in Chrome, because if you have a lot of extensions, that might also give you the crashing error
message. Okay, now if none of these methods work for you what you might have to do is
uninstall Chrome altogether and re-install it and see if that fixes the problem. That’s
all I know, there might be more reasons that cause the crashes, but those are the ones
that I know of, as of now. If you tried all these methods and none of them work for you,
please leave a comment with your specific problem, and I will do more research and try
to get you the fix that you need. Okay, hopefully this was a helpful video for some of you.
If that is the case please like the video, leave a comment, or subscribe to my channel,
and anything will be really appreciated. Have a good day every one now, take care.

  1. Great video. Unchecking the box worked for a while. But I disabled Adobe Flash and Shockwave. Tested it by going to the sites where I kept getting the crash. Came to Youtube and the videos are playing just fine. I think that may have done it. Keeping my fingers crossed. Thanks for the video.

  2. Thanks dude, it looks like using Chrome in incognito mode did it for me, you are right Chrome uses way less ram when used in incognito mode.

  3. Great research.. Thanks. I think you may have helped fixed my problem I had an Adobe Flash Player plugin enabled, and I believe the the latest version of Chrome has Flash already built in without the need for a plug-in… I disablied the Plug-in and so far so good )

  4. Hey! I just worked out something very important. Be sure that you are running the 64 BIT VERSION OF CHROME, this was the root of my problem, I removed the 32 bit and installed the 64 bit and it works fine, also Chrome runs faster in general!

  5. Well like many in the past few weeks flash has stopped working in Chrome. After TONS of research involving recent things I found the fix and problem. First the problem is a recent update of Chrome made it so they no longer support flash. But they forgot to include something for us to somehow still play it. The most recent update hasn't fixed it either. So how do you fix this in the mean time?

    If you use Chrome go here:

    Where it says "Adobe Flash Player" click disable. Yes, I know that sounds like the opposite of what you would want. But for some reason it works and now I can run flash videos. In a future update of Chrome hopefully they will fix this by including their version of flash. In the meantime the fix works great.

  6. Thanks for your video, but nothing worked for me. My mom's computer crashes all the time when she tries to play farmville on facebook (and only then)! I have done all the things you said except reinstalling chrome (which is all new since we just installed windows 2007 on her computer). Besides that, nothing seems to work!
    But nonetheless, thanks for your effort

  7. Thank You! — HowToVideos..!. By unchecking the "Use hardware acceleration when available" solved my problems, after days of uninstalling and reinstalling Chrome and Windows Updates trying to find the source of the problem. I NEVER would have tried your Fix in a million years without seeing your video. Thanks again.

    P.S. I don't know who is worse, Microsoft or Google for programming default features that mess up PC's.

  8. Thank you !! i have tried that settings sections' unchecking thing and got problem solved..actually i was having trouble loading my poker game on fb 😀

  9. One version of Shockwave. No conflicts. Hardware acceleration unchecked.

    Time to see if I can leave a browser game overnight, for once. Wish me luck lol.

    EDIT: Ugh, no. It runs something bloody awful now. I'd sacrifice connection stability for performance any day.

  10. looks like nothing you are telling me does anything i have 3 computers including my windows server 2012 r2 doing the same thing can't say its memory my gaming laptop has 12gb of ram and my server has 32gb of ram and my desktop has 8gb of ram no conflicts detected nothing wrong with my update its updated and also this is happening with windows server and windows 7 and windows 10 im about to not use chrome for a while until they fix the bug

  11. In my version of Chrome, "55.0.2883.87 m" one can disable Flash:
    1) Go to Settings,
    2) expose advance setting at the bottom
    3) Scroll down to and select a rectangular button "Content Settings:"
    4) In the resulting pop-up box scroll down to the word Flash and check the box to disable Flash

  12. Hello Daniel, I have tried all 7 of your suggestions in your very much educational video and the Schockwave flash player still constantantly chrashes in my game. I'm playing Island Experient on Google Chrome. And after re-installing the google chrome it is actually worse then ever. Perhaps you should exclude the included flashplayer and try to let the Adobe be installed separatley by the users. I have enough memory and no malware.

  13. My PC has 5 files in plugins. Google Chrome has 2 files and it is disable by enterprise policy. I copy and pasted the files below

    I would really appreciate it.

  14. When i search for the plugins there is no enable or disable button. Only can check allow to always run.What can I do to fix this

  15. when i type Chrome://plugins it says "The webpage at chrome://plugins/ might be temporarily down or it may have moved permanently to a new web address."

  16. For me this issue only happens when I use one specific website (pixlr). I have a Chromebook and contacted Google support. After running some diagnostics and looking into it, they said it's an issue with the website itself. The thing is, I used it for months with no problems and then one day it just started crashing 2-3 minutes into using it. It's an online photo editing site. I'm at a loss at this point. I have lots of images I'd love to edit but can't because it crashes. I've sent an email to the website but I haven't heard back. If you can think of anything I'd be very grateful.

  17. thank you so so much for your help,the problem is solved!you saved me a lot of money!
    again many thanks for your clear solution!
