Hi guys,

As you might know this issue has been out for a while, but suddenly today I encountered it and I have tried disabling plugins in chrome to test if I can get it to work. However, I failed and I have no idea how to fix it.

The same thing also appeared on my newly installed Opera, without any plugins.

Another problem, I can't even start Internet Explorer, which came with Windows 7, I never use it, but when I try to use it, it fails. :(

Can anyone please lend me a hand?

My Build:
Case: Xigmatek Asgard Pro Black Edition Motherboard: AsRock Z77 Extreme 4
CPU: Intel 3rd Generation i5-3570 @ 4.2 Ghz Graphics Card: Asus HD 7770 1 GB GDDR5
RAM: Adata 4GB DDR3 1333 X 2

Shockwave Flash in Chrome crashes on me.. usually when I open a lot of tabs of websites using it. I've become used to it... I usually clear my browser history and cache multiple times a day. You might want to try that. When I say I open a lot of bookmarked pages... I mean 30 plus tabs of different websites.

Thanks for the help the help, I am going to use Opera anyway, Opera is working now, though the browser is a bit slow. Sad.

Uninstall Adobe Shockwave Player, reboot and reinstall. You night have to do the same with your browsers.

I'm sure this have nothing to do with Shockwave Player at all, it's the Flash player that causes the problem, and yes I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling flash player and the flash player plugins for Chrome. Dunno why, but that worked for a short time (not a day), and goes crazy again.

I'm not expecting to fix it anyway, so thanks for all the attention.

I am still getting problems with shockwave flash and adobe when I update to the current versions. I went back to the site and installed and used older developer versions of the program and everything plays well for now.

Chrome is working again, but the weird thing is I have disabled all the flash player plugins, and did not work at once and after a period of time, it worked again till now, still with all the flash player plugins disable, dunno why. LOL
