    Default Adobe (Shockwave) Flash Player Issue

    I keep getting an "Unresponsive Plugin" error on many sites that use flash. For example, the flash box at the top of the YouTube home page gives me this error. However, watching a YouTube video works perfectly.

    When I go to a page where I get this error, it locks up Chrome completely so I cannot switch tabs, scroll up or down, go to a different page, or even close Chrome (outside of the Task Manager, anyway). In some cases, when the box comes up saying that either "Shockwave Flash" or "Unknown" is unresponsive and I click to kill it, it stops trying to load and I can do whatever I wish. However, most pages will not be fixed by those means, and will instead relaod flash over and over so I cannot get past the error and must close Chrome to be able to use it at all. Also, even when I do not have the "Unresponsive Plugin" error, Flash will occasionally crash for no apparent reason.

    Solutions that I have tried incluse:
    • Uninstall (all) Flash Player/Shockwave programs and Reinstall the latest version of Adobe Flash Player
    • Reinstall Chrome
    • Use the most recent Beta version of chrome.
    • Use an older version of Flash
    • Repairing a Sony Driver that I saw was rumored to cause a similar issue

    None of my solutions have had any effect on the problem, although I did not run into the problm with I did not have Flash installed on some pages, but the content still loaded. (YouTube flash object loaded when it was not installed, but I could not watch videos)

    I am running Windows XP SP3, but as my girlfriend, who is running Windows 7, is having the same problem, I don't think that my operating system is making much of a difference/causing part of the problem.

    If anyone has any ideas of what I could do to resolve my problem, I would be most thankful.

    Welcome to ChromePlugins

    I had the same problem while running Dev Chrome;
    in fact, all my browsers crashed when I try to watch a video in YouTube;

    Reinstalled Shockwave twice but still the problem persists

    Suddenly I could watch YouTube
    which leads me to conclude that the problem lies with YouTube

    But the problem exists for me on almost every site that uses Flash to load things such as Ads. I must say, it's probably the most annoying thing I've ever dealt with on my computer. >.>

    I guess no one has a fix yet?

    --EDIT--

    I installed AdTwart and FlashBlock and have not had the problem thus far. It has only been a few minutes, but I think this will solve the problem well enough for now.
