Chrome - Constant Shockwave Crashing/Adblock Question

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Every time I am on Youtube, and I am watching a video, if I close the tab (or sometimes click open a new video), or try to go back a page, Chrome will stop responding for a minute, and then pop up an error saying the plugin Shockwave has crashed.

I tried a fresh install of Chrome, and that didn't do anything. I don't get this problem on Firefox, and the only reason I went to Chrome is because it's a lot faster (for me at least).

Does anyone have or have had this issue before? Kinda starting to drive me nuts.


On another note, does anyone have issues with Adblock Plus not working as good as the Firefox version? If I go to the same websites on Firefrox and Chrome, I don't ever see any ad's or pop ups on Firefox, but on Chrome I sometimes encounter ad's, which is kind of annoying (on Youtube I don't get any ad's).

About the flash issue, I had something similar to that and what I found is uninstalling all the installed versions (the updates leave the old copies) then doing a fresh install with just the newest copy cleared up the issue.

For Ad Block, there's an Ad Block and an Ad Block Plus (Beta) so maybe seeming which (or maybe both) of those works better. You could also try adding more lists to see if those clear up the ads.

I downloaded and ran the Flash uninstaller from Adobe, and ran it/restarted and I was still able to browse Youtube and stuff, so I guess it didn't really uninstall.

I ran the updated version of Adobe, and installed it, and still getting the problem.

Is there another way to uninstall/re-install it?

Adobe uninstaller or Revo are the only two applications I can think of that might help you. You could also try running CCleaner's mem cleaup after you uninstall.

This was bugging me a lot, this is how i fixed it.

Point chrome to chrome://plugins/

Click details near the top right corner.

Under flash there should be two files, disable the one located in C:\Windows
