Shockwave Flash Player

Q: Shockwave Flash Player

I see it crashes every few minutes, regardless of what program I'm running, or my E-mail or anything else. I removed it, reinstalled it. Same results. How to keep it from crashing or do I need it for most applications and can always re-install it if it's infrequent.

Preferred Solution: Shockwave Flash Player

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?

I said "no". Now, no matter what I do, I can't get shockwave to install and/or work. I went to Macromedia and tried to install it from their site. No luck. The same thing is true of the Flash Player. What, if anything can I do?
Please don't tell me I have to reinstall Windows XP.

Have you been able to download anything from other sites ?

I have Windows 7 and recently, out of no where, I started getting messages that my Shockwave Flash Player has crashed. This happens on all browsers, Google Chrome, Firefox and IE, which I have all the most recent updated versions of. At first, I wasn't able to watch videos or do anything that required flash, including running skype. After uninstalling it and installing it a few times I was able to watch videos again, but I am still unable to run Skype (I try to sign in and it stays on the "Signing In" screen or tells me that it cannot connect). I also cannot use programs that I would use webcam on either (I tried Stickam and Tinychat). Whenever I go to one of those websites it freezes for about five minutes and then tells me that the Flash plug-in has crashed, with a sad puzzle piece. I have tried just about everything I can think of from uninstalling and reinstalling Skype, restarting my computer numerous times and uninstalling Adobe Flash with the uninstaller tool and reinstalling it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

A:Shockwave Flash Player Crash

If Flash is working except for certain apps then the apps are the problem. I don't use Skype but my guess is they have a help forum so you might be better off trying there. It could be a known issue.

I've had this problem for about 3 days now. Everything that uses adobe shockwave and flash player isn't working properly. For example, youtube videos load completely, but then they begin to buffer about 30-40 seconds in and never move again. The same goes for any site that uses shockwave for videos/games, etc.

I have the latest shockwave and flash installed on my computer. It happens on all 3 browsers I have (IE, Foxfire, Google Chrome). I cleared all caches. I've run maintenance on my computer, including defrag. Obviously I've restarted it again and again.

Now, I have to add that I've had trojans popping up left and right around the same time this has happened. I use BitDefender Antivirus and apparently they've all either been cleaned or quarantined. I don't know a lot about computers, but I have a feeling that doesn't mean they're gone and it's possible that's where my troubles are coming from. The initial trojans were all in the java deployment cache. I initially thought the problem was with java. Perhaps it's all of them. I don't know.

Also, when the adobe programs first started to slow down I uninstalled them and reinstalled them. I had a lot of trouble reinstalling them. Obviously Google Chrome already has them installed. But it took me quite a few tries for IE and Firefox. Particularly Firefox. I kept getting a message that there was a problem with "side by side configuration". Then a few ho... Read more

I've been running Windows XP and the latest version of flash on this computer for as long as I can remember. The only thing is, about a year ago my computer tended to restart itself when I tried to load a large flash/shockwave file on both IE and FF. Some websites cannot cause it to crash at all, Youtube, for instance, but other websites like GameTrailers cause the problem in hand.

I've tried installing and reinstalling them many times, but the problem persists to this day.

If anyone could help me to resolve this, I would be monumentally grateful.

Have you tried running Firefox without add-ons?

How to Run Firefox Without Add-ons
Can you see the animation HERE? Are you seeing the latest version 11.6.602.180?

It's not enough to determine that running without add-ons works fine. You then must isolate the offending (can be anything and not just Flash) add-on and either remove it, or update it. It's impossible to run without add-ons permanently.

Hello, Recently, iv'e tried playing a game I used to play last summer that requires flash/shockwave players. I already have the uptodate ones but I seem to be experiencing serious issues. When ever I load this game, CPU usage goes up to around 70%-100% on what ever explorer is loading the game (firefox, or internet explorer). And the game just kind of runs slow, I have no spyware/viruses or anything. I use the following tools to ensure of that.

Trend micro anti virus

And various other tools, such as spywareguard and spywareblaster. Anyways another issue which im pretty sure is caused by the flash, when I view internet pages, random pictures blink/flicker. Infact Iv'e just noticed to the right of this box im typing in the smileys are flashing/blinking. And websites like www.download.com, their banner uptop blinks. I don't think it's normal its ridiculous to make a banner like that. Also sometimes a whole page blinks/flickers in certain spots. This is really starting to annoy me, I can't play that game if it's going to suck up 1 gig of my ram...

One of today's Microsoft updates supposedly deals with the repeated problems users experience when they try to install the Macromedia Shockwave / Flash Players in Internet Explorer.

All this time I've seen numerous attestations from users (including me, in multiple pc's and os-ie configurations) regarding problems (or, more accurately, utter failure) when it came to installing those Macromedia Players.

So, I suggest all frustrated users to visit the Internet Explorer ActiveX update page and follow MS' advice to download and install what you have to.

Bear in mind, though, that if you have the Player(s) installed or unsuccessfully tried to install them, you'll need first to take some additional steps. You'll find useful information in other relevant TSF threads and in Adobe's website.

Windows XP Pro/IE8/Firefox/Google Chrome browsers

I have previously had Adobe Flash Player installed in past years and had not used it very often and uninstalled it. Now I find I have certain websites that require it for viewing content so I have recently installed Adobe Flash Player 16 along with Adobe Shockwave Player 12.1 which I believe is needed as a plug-in? (Both of these are the latest versions!)

I am using 3 browsers primarily because IE8 no longer displayes content on certain websites correctly, so I go to Firefox or Google Chrome on many occasions.(In actuality, both of these browsers load pages much slower than IE8 even though they still are supporting XP?)

My issue is that even with these new Adobe installations, all three browsers will not recognize the existance of Flash and Shockwave on my desktop and each browser asks me to dowload them to their individual browsers. It doesn't seem realistic that I should do this and override the existing installations so I have not tried this on any of the 3 browsers.

Why are the Adobe instillations on my XP not recognized and how can this issue be addressed and resolved?

Thank you for any assistenance!

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.

It is very annoying and this has increased recently. Netflix videos work just fine.

I do get the shockwave flash error alot and thought it might be causing the issue. The error I get is attached as a image (i took a screen shot to show you).

Things you may want to know:

Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit
Browser: Firefox 34.0.5

If you need anything else from me, please let me know. Hope you can help me out with this.

Reinstall both Shockwave and Flash for Firefox, see if that has anything to do with it.

Hello folks

The last few days ive had noting but problems with Chrome. Shockwave flash keeps on crashing every 15-20 minutes. If i watch youtube videos, use facebook or just have on the starting page. It crash.

Ive been lurking a bit on the world wide web to find a fix on it. But only "fix" ive come over is to go to plugins in your browser, and turn the built in flash engine that comes with Chrome off. But that didnt fix it for me.

Anyone got any ideas?

Not sure if this is the right board to post on, if not please tell me so i can move it

A:Shockwave flash crash

If Chrome has a hardware acceleration try turning it off.
I have never used Chrome so I don't know if it has one or not.
Firefox has it under Tools/Options/Advance

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.

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...)

I know topics exist about this already, and I have similar problems (Shockwave crashes during video on some sites like IGN), but I also get a specific error message that often pops up when Shockwave crashes during video playback.

The odd Asian characters in the error message scare me a little bit. Should I be worried about something more malicious than just Shockwave experiencing an error?
