Shockwave flash error while browsing internet with Google Chrome

Hi,

Once in a while, I get this error – "the following plug-in is unresponsive: shockwave flash.

It does not happen all the time. I would be watching a video on YouTube or doing something on the internet and all of a sudden, the browser crashes. It's not a big deal because I can go back to what I was doing later.

I just want to know how to fix this problem because sometimes when I am browsing the internet with Google Chrome the error comes up and it's very annoying!

Thanks in advance.

Hi,

To get rid of the problem, you will have to do the following:

1. Open your Google Browser and type exactly what is shown here: chrome://plugins/

2. Go to the top-most Shockwave Flash plug-in option on the list and click 'Disable'.

3. The word 'Disable' will be replaced with 'Enable' and the part will be coloured. 

4. Clear your browser cache by clicking Ctlr+Shift+Del at a time. 

5. Put tick mark 'Empty the cache' and 'Delete cookies'

6. Click 'Clear browsing data'.

7. Go forward.

I think your problem has been solved.

Hi Brandoon,

This can be caused by an outdated Flash player this can also happen from other browsers. Most users experiencing this problem however use Google chrome as this has an integrated Flash player on it. To resolve this issue you have to disable all except one of your Flash plugin.

Look down for the list of Plugins for flash, look for two or more version of PepperFlash. And then try to restart your browser again. You can check the link here for more information.
