How do I get my shockwave flash to stop crashing

My shockwave crash keeps crashing/not responding/slow to respond/lagging/loading slow/freezes/etc. I do not know much about computer but since June 2 have been having problems. I removed it on June 2 and reloaded with same error messages, freezes, etc. I noticed my Norton was also giving me problems so contacted Norton who after a week was finally able to fix that problem. On Mon. they asked if I was having any problems and i stated not with Norton; only with shockwave flash from - still same problems or worse than before. All this week I've beent trying to find downloads/help since Norton said to contact you. It's Wed. and I'm still looking for help. I've taken off all Adobe products again and reloaded them one by one restarting my computer in between downloads. All are the latest downloads on your site under downloads.  I'm still have slow page loading/response. Then after a while i get shockwave not responding to finally get plug in shockwave flash has crashed. I don't do much on my computer but enjoy playing games on and Please help so I can enjoy my computer again. I used to use Mozilla but Norton doesn't work well with it and was told to use Google.

After allowing adobe to keep game info on my computer, it's been working good for 30 minutes without any errors/freezes/crashes, etc. Lets hope it will now work!

    If you have already scanned PC with an updated Anti-Virus and still the issue exists then I would suggest some troubleshooting techniques to resolve this problem:


    • Update browser
    • Remove unwanted Add-ons
    • Remove unwanted Tool-bars
    • Repair Registry
    • Repair ActiveX objects and shared DLLs


    In case of facebook and Zynga I would suggest to Check for Problems with your Internet Connection.Try to Update Java and Reduce the Number of Running Internet Applications.


    Sometimes Multimedia content lag due to Hardware Acceleration, so disabling Hardware Acceleration should fix your problem.

    • Open Flash Video in browser
    • Right click on Video Player | Settings
    • Open Display Panel
    • Uncheck Enable Hardware Acceleration


    If issue still exists then you can find some more techniques described in detail here: g-in-Crash.html
