Windows 7: I think I have a reacurring Flash crash. I think.

16 Aug 2014   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
I think I have a reacurring Flash crash. I think.

I regularly get a shockwave crash when using MLBTV w/ Chrome. I far more occasionally get a screen lock crash when playing YouTube videos. Screan locks, but audio continues for sometimes quite a while. I eventually reset.

I do regularly get the tuning program to my graphics card (GeoForce 9800 GT) crashing. It just stops working, so I close it. I should probably remove it... I've assumed this is basically meaningless. That said, maybe that was a stupid assumption.

I tried rolling back the flash version in Chrome to no avail.

This has been going on for the six months or so I have this machine. The circumstances that lead to crashes are rare enough that I've only occasionally tried to do something about them, but they are regular.

If there is a more appropriate forum for this issue, I'll take it there. I'm only really guessing that it's a flash issue, because of the shockwave crash. I really (obviously) have no idea what I'm talking about...

Welcome to Seven Forums onioining. Most Flash and youtube problems with Chrome are caused by the Pepper Flash plugin

Try to disable the Pepper Flash plugin (not all of flash, just this plugin)

Type about:plugins in the address bar and disable it under the Macromedia section
