How does it crash, exactly; do you get an error message?
What do you do when it crashes?
The screen freezes and seems to work 1-3 min at self correcting. eventually it reads a pop-up that says it has become unresponsive. Asks - wait or stop it. Have tried several times to wait it out,wait again up to 2-3 times, and stop. sometimes the plug-in responds on the first try when wait option is used 90% time it always fails and have the message of " folling plug-in has crashed: shockwave flash. " with that dead puzzle piece being displayed.
Shockwave Flash is Flash Player, not Shockwave Player.
