Shockwave Flash Object not working in ie 11 / Win 8.1

Q: Shockwave Flash Object not working in ie 11 / Win 8.1

I am having problems opening a number of Video type files specifically in Facebook.
Under Manage Add-on's, the "Shockwave Flash Object" is listed as "Not available" but is enabled.
I am thinking that this my problem with opening videos in Facebook etc. How do I rectify this strange problem in the IE 11.
I have attempted to fix this issue through other forums and the adobe support site without success. 
Also, am I right in assuming that if "Flash" is working correctly in IE 11, I do not need another version of Flash in Firefox?
Your help on the above would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Shockwave Flash Object not working in ie 11 / Win 8.1

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


We have IE 6. Say a user goes to MSN.com. The ad on the right is a Flash object. Some of our users will see that object flickering when scrolling up or down on the page or when hovering their mouse over it. It's quite annoying. Almost all users are running Adobe Flash Player 9, but I think I've seen this happen on systems with Macromedia Flash Player 8 as well. Other systems don't have the problem. I've seen this happen on one system and not another while both seemed to have the same Flash objects installed.

Uninstalling all Flash players using Adobe's prescribed Flash Player uninstall tool seems to work at first, but users later complain again. Note that they just about always end up installing Flash Player 9 again, because sites ask for it. I don't believe I've seen this on any XP systems at all, including my own, but most of our users have Win2K.

Does anybody know why this happens or how to permanently fix it?


A:Ie 6 - Flash Objects Flickering - Using Adobe Flash Player 9 Activex R28 (shockwave Flash Object V.

More info: Adobe Flash Player 9, Macromedia Flash Player 8, and Macromedia Flash Player 10 all produce the same result--Flash objects that flicker when you put your mouse over any part of them. Moving Flash objects will flicker constantly while moving and stop flickering when the animation is done. SWF files (at least the one at www.stormwerks.com/linked/stuf/AYB2.swf) work without a problem when using Adobe Flash Player 9.

If I don't have Adobe Flash Player 9 installed, the Win2K machines prompt me to install them for almost any site that uses Flash (I guess most recent Flash objects cannot be viewed with the older Macromedia Flash Players).

Any suggestions?

Anyone have any idea why I am having excessive IE7 shutdowns as a result of this add-on?

It's the Shockwave Flash Object ActiveX Control FlDbg10b.ocx by Adobe Systems, Inc - which of course is required to run anything shockwave/macromedia on the web (this includes a lot)

At least 4 or 5 times per day I get the message "Shockwave Flash Object FlDbg10b.ocx has encountered problems and needs to close." After clicking okay, IE7 shuts down. Very frustrating.

I recently did a complete fresh installation of XP, and all the software and updates required following. Decided to stick with IE7 instead of going IE8 just yet. Perhaps I should also mention that I installed along with it some brand new software - Abobe CS4 Web Premium Edition (needed this stuff for school) - Wondering if there's any conflict here.

Tried lots of trouble shooting to no avail and just hoping someone out there in tech land might have a clue. Thanks for any replies.

There is a problem in which Flash Player stops once during the operation of the business portal currently operating based on Flash Player, so please contact us.

As a result of the verification, it is confirmed that it is not related to Adobe's Flash Player and is related to the function of Shockwave Flash Object installed in Windows 10 Internet Explorer 11.

Therefore, I would like to know whether it is possible to delete and reinstall the Shockwave Flash Object function.
And I would like to know if it is possible to upgrade or downgrade only the version of the Shockwave Flash Object (or any other related function) while leaving the version of Internet Explorer.

Thank you.

Problem: flash & shockwave players stopped working. Invisible link on page--if clicked on takes you to segon.com/boomer/video/purchase & then segon.com. Segon indicates that the problem has to do with some vulnerability of the MSN installation. Removing MSN from the systems eliminates the problem.Its a Key Logger. (Keystroke Logger). A program that runs in the background, recording all the keystrokes. It has been created using the trial version of Boomer Video (one of our products), any SWF file created with the trial version of Boomer Video always points to our site when you click the SWF.At this point we know that it runs in the background, recording all the keystrokes. Once keystrokes are logged, they are hidden in the windows directory for later retrieval.
Using SpyBot, PestPatrol and RegEdit some experienced users finally removed the virus.The origin of this virus is from OytaNet.com Productions, but it seems that these latest attacks have been done with a new version of the virus. Best Regards, Segon

So far MS unable to fix it

I have a Lexmark Impact S305 Wireless Printer. Have had it working for about 3 months. I am running Windows 7 32 bit. Just started having spooler issues. Have removed the printer and reinstalled the driver and printer and still having same issue.

I can print one job, regardless of where it came from, word doc, pdf, etc. The second job does not print. There are always two things hung in the printers folder shockwave object and .shd file. After the first print job, I can stop the spooler, empty the contents of the printers folder, restart the spooler and still not print the second job. Of course when I do this, the object and files show back up in the printers folder.

My only way around this currently is to stop the spooler, clear the folder, restart the computer and the printer. Then I get the chance for one more job. I thought by reinstalling the printer and driver maybe I could fix it, however, its back to one and done. Not fun when I have two teenagers needing to print homework......

Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Guys,

I've recently been to a website that required the newsest upgrade of Flash/Shockwave inorder for me to view its contents and offered me a link to upgrade it.
I followed the link where i was informed that the installation of both was successful.
When i tried to view the page agian, i got the same error.
I thought it might require a restart or something, and just passed it off for a day or two.
Now, in the last week, i've been viewing pages of all sorts telling me i need to have a newer version of Flash installed and again offering me the link, and have on more than one occasion followed it and been advised that the upgrade/intallation was succssful, yet not one single site i visit recognises this.

I'm baffled and frustrated at this stage ...

Anyone care to lend a helping hand ?


You might want to read my similar post couple of days ago in the All Other Applications forum. Had the same thing going on. No matter how many time is reinstalled the latest player, sites wouldn't play their videos. The problem ended up being a Java problem (corrupt files), not a Flashplayer problem. Check it out. I'm sure an expert helper will be along soon to offer other advice in case your problem is not quite the same.

My problem is :

When I turn on my computer on, often when I try to access webpages that contain flash content , such as youtube , a window appears reading: "The following plug-in is unresponsive: Shockwave Flash would you like to stop it?" with a selection of "yes" or "no"

when you click "yes", the whole of the web browser freezes and then one way or another you have to close the web browser,

If you press "no", nothing happens and according to the task manager the window is
"not responding".

However ,this problem can often be solved by restarting the computer a number of times. I have attempted to uninstall and reinstall Shockwave Flash, but with no successful outcome whatsoever.

could anybody please help?

(Also, on a side note, in the toolbar at the bottom of the screen with all the program items on , I know the moment I log on that Flash will not work because skype fails to log in and stays on the two curved arrows circling ...if that makes any sense...)

Just this morning, right after being told to do a manual update to my AVG Antivirus software, which is supposed to do that automatically, my computer started slowing wayyyyyyyyyyy down, like something was running in the background. My AVG did not indicate it was doing an automatic scan. Ditto for Malwarebytes. Ditto for my Acronis automatic backup, which did work correctly over night. I started trying to diagnose the issue, and the first thing I did was update Ccleaner. While doing that, I got an error msg saying something like "shockwave flash may be busy or stopped running." I clicked "stop plugin" to no avail whatsoever, more than once. I finally had to hit ctrl-alt-del to turn the machine off and try again. I think I've fixed it but I don't know.

What IS shockwave flash? I've never heard of it. I never stream stuff, or download movies or music, and I almost never use youtube for anything at all.

What can I do to avoid this in the future, if indeed, I don't need shockwave flash at all.

If I need to post more about my setup, I'll be happy to do that.

I've posted about this in the past and was unable to get a strong resolution, but I'm going to try again -- maybe the technology has improved since then, and the problem has suddenly gotten worse (affecting almost every time I open a page with video on it). What I'm referring to is the "shockwave flash" crashes in Forefox. I'll go the page, the browser will stop responding, then after a few seconds, a box will pop up with the heading "Warning: Unresponsive Plugin" and some text about Shockwave flash being busy. Sometimes it resolves itself, but it still causes a significant delay (usually over one minute). Other times, it tells me that it has crashed and I have to reload the page. Either way, it's extremely annoying and makes my time online less productive. Any ideas on how to resolve this? Is there some kind of alternative to Shockwave Flash that performs the same role but with more stability? Thank you!

I've posted about this in the past and was unable to get a strong resolution, but I'm going to try again -- maybe the technology has improved since then, and the problem has suddenly gotten worse (affecting almost every time I open a page with video on it). What I'm referring to is the "shockwave flash" crashes in Forefox. I'll go the page, the browser will stop responding, then after a few seconds, a box will pop up with the heading "Warning: Unresponsive Plugin" and some text about Shockwave flash being busy. Sometimes it resolves itself, but it still causes a significant delay (usually over one minute). Other times, it tells me that it has crashed and I have to reload the page. Either way, it's extremely annoying and makes my time online less productive. Any ideas on how to resolve this? Is there some kind of alternative to Shockwave Flash that performs the same role but with more stability? Thank you!

A:Shockwave Flash crashes

I really don't mean this in a rude way, but is this forum still active? It's been almost two weeks, and not one response to my question. That never used to happen before. It looks like many other threads here are unanswered as well. I don't know if it's related, but I also noticed that my recent posts aren't listed in the "find all posts" link for me. Any comments would be appreciated, though I hope that isn't a lost cause! Thank you.

I just zapped my aunts computer and redid everything w/ WinXP (home edt.) and I can't get Shockwave/Flash on internet... when I went to Shockwave .com and clicked on the links for the games to run and it just ignored the command. I installed the shockwave flash player and it still does the same thing... it also did it at www.newgrounds.com... really puzzled on this one ... thanks for your time
