Why Shockwave Flash Crashes in Chrome?

Different ways that Chrome handles with Flash contents is the reason why Shockwave flash causes crashes. Once other browsers call upon the Flash installation of the host system, Chrome still includes an internal Flash installation. If everything goes smoothly, Chrome will run well and the internal Flash installation will be updated with every release.

However, if Chrome gets confused and tries to utilize both the OS installation of Flash and the internal Chrome installation of Flash, serious browser lag, temporary lockup and browser-wide crash of all active Flash will definitely happen. Then a warning appears – “The Following plug-in has crashed: Shackwave Flash.”

Steps to Fix Google Chrome’s Shockware Crashes:

  • Step1. Run Google Chrome and type plugins in the address bar of the browser and hit enter. Then a list of complete plugins installed will be displayed.
