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.

Shockwave Flash is actually Adobe Flash Player. They are the same thing and just differ in the terminology used. “Adobe Flash Player” is the name of the plug-in when installed on the browser and “Shockwave Flash” is its technical term. Adobe kept this for compatibility purposes after they acquired the Macromedia company.

Now, since you are using the Google Chrome web browser and once in a while you get a plug-in error related to Shockwave Flash, you need to update the Adobe Flash Player. And since you are using a Chrome-based browser, download Adobe Flash Player PPAPI. This is the Flash Player plug-in designed for Chrome-based browsers like Google Chrome.

The Flash Player plug-in has three different versions for three different types of web browsers: ActiveX, NPAPI, and PPAPI. The ActiveX version of the Flash Player plug-in is designed to work with the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser. The NPAPI version is for the Mozilla Firefox web browser while the PPAPI is for Chrome-based browsers like Opera and Google Chrome.
