First of all, despite the warning about Shockwave, the actual warning has nothing to do with Adobe Shockwave, which is a separate program/multimedia system from Adobe Flash. Second, while not every instance of Flash flaking out in Chrome can be attributed to a Flash install conflict, we've found it to be the most common reason users are experiencing Flash-related problems.
How can you tell if a Flash conflict is the source of your trouble? Run Chrome. In the address bar, type about:plugins
in the address bar. After you press enter, you'll be greeted with a list of all the plug-ins installed in Chrome (this is different from user-installed Extensions). Look down the list of plug-ins for the Flash
entry. If the entry looks like Flash (2 Files)
there is a very good chance the source of your Flash-related crashes is a conflict between the two.
In the upper right hand corner of the browser window, there is a small toggle labeled [+] Details
. Click on that toggle to expand the entries for all the plug-ins. Return to the entry for Flash
.You should see something like two entries for Flash, one for the internal Chrome installation and one for the host OS's installation .
You need to click on the Disable
link for Chrome's internal installation of Flash (make sure you disable the one located in Chrome's AppData folder and not the separate stand-alone Flash installation). Once you do so the entry for the internal installation should look like one now.Go ahead and close the tab and then close Google Chrome. Restart Chrome and resume normal browsing.Also visit Adobe's test page to ensure everything looks good:Remember, you'll no longer be getting automatic updates with each Chrome upgrade. Make sure to check for updates at Adobe's Flash download page
and/or turn on the update check in your local installation of Adobe Flash.
If that doesn't work,Some software on your computer can conflict with Google Chrome and cause it to crash. This includes malware and network-related software that interferes with Google Chrome.
Google Chrome has a hidden page that will tell you if any software on your system is known to conflict with Google Chrome. To access it, type chrome://conflicts
into Chrome's address bar and press Enter.
And don't forget,Google just launched a new tool that will help you clean up your Chrome browser
from anything that is interfering with normal operation.
All you need to do is navigate to www.google.com/chrome/srt/
and click the Download now button.That should cover it, if not I would suspect malware and kapersky labs has a boatload of free tools for that too.Hope this helps,PEACE :-)
