    FIX: (credit to an EU poster from another thread... THIS WORKED FOR ME, but no guarantees)

    First I went to Adobe and downloaded the most current version of the Chrome plugin
    then...
    With any Chrome browser page open:
    click spanner, or wrench icon if in USA, (top right corner)
    click - options
    click- under the hood (bonnet)
    choose- privacy-contents settings
    choose - plug ins - disable individual settings

    You will probably see 2 shockwave plug ins installed.
    One that you originally had,and one that came with chrome.(probably)
    You need to disable one of them, probably the oldest version and try Chrome again.

    If it doesn't work, try to disable the other version, but you need to disable one of them.

    Now it seems to work fine, for me.
    Note, I am runnning XP, on a old desktop.
    Hope this works for you.

    additional info that was also posted...
    I read a post from a google techie, that said to disable the gcsw32.dll
    It stopped the crash messages,but I had no video on websites,only still pictures.
    He said it worked for him.
    So I re-enabled that one and disabled the other,np32dsw.dll.
    It now works fine!
    Note, I am runnning XP, on a old desktop.
    Hope this works for you.
