Do you have the latest Catalyst drivers installed?
Hi Sean, thanks for the reply - yes I do have the latest Catalyst drivers installed but still no joy. Any other thoughts? Thanks.
Is there a particular URL you are visiting that provokes a crash?
Main one is www.cams.com

Looks like there's a work around to this problem, i found in a few
In discussion forums:
"I have talked to Sony about this and we reached a workaround.
it involves a file called BtwVdpCapFilter.dll (it is a bluetooth
profile that essentially allows people to share their webcam across
bluetooth BUT no one uses this) and it is what is crashing when you
access the webcam thru IE/Firefox/Opera.
So go to C:\windows\system32 and rename it to anything for example
BtwVdpCapFilter1.dll and everything should be fine. Sony said they
will be releasing a patch for this.
Try this and see if problem gets sorted out!! It worked for me.
I too have problems with Shockwave crashing on Google Chrome. It happens on multiple web sites. I get a message: "The following plug-in has crashed: Shockwave Flash".
It is not related to the Sony Bluetooth issue as I do not have a Sony or Bluetooth. It is not because I do need to upgrade to the latest version because I have the latest. I have tried to reinstall, but when I go to Adobe and try this, I get a message that Google Chrome has the plug-in installed (or something like that).
If I reboot my PC, the message will go away for a few minutes, but then will return and everything from there forward redisplays the message that "The following plug-in has crashed: ShockWave Flash".
I also see the little puzzle piece with a very unhappy face in place of the flash display.
I would really appreciate it if anyone can help with this. I am beginning to think that this is a conspiracy to discourage us from using the Google browser.
Thanks in advance for teh simple yet elegant solution some genius is going to provide :-)
Found a solution. See the info below from Chrome help. I chose the option to "To disable Adobe Flash completely, click the Disable link under its name." I had earlier tried to just disable one of the two, but that failed. All tests out OK after disable.
Adobe Flash is directly integrated with Google Chrome and enabled by default. Any available updates for Adobe Flash are automatically included in Google Chrome updates.
If you want to use Adobe Flash in other browsers, you’ll need to separately download the Adobe Flash Player for those browsers. Visit http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/
Disable Adobe Flash
- Click the wrench icon on the browser toolbar.
- Select Options (Preferences on Mac and Linux; Settings on Chrome OS).
- Click the Under the Hood tab.
- Click Content settings.
- In the Content Settings dialog that appears, click the Plug-ins tab.
- Click Disable individual plug-ins.
- On the Plug-ins page that appears, find the "Flash" listing.
- To disable Adobe Flash completely, click the Disable link under its name.
- If you've previously installed Adobe Flash separately, you'll see two files listed for the plug-in. To disable a specific version of Adobe Flash, click Details in the upper-right corner of the page. Then click the Disable link for the version of Adobe Flash you want to disable. The version of Adobe Flash that's been built in to Google Chrome shows the file gcswf32.dll in its location field.
- Restart the browser.
You can also type about:plugins in the address bar to quickly open the Plug-ins page
Hi Just a few comments. It's not helpful to post on a two year old thread, especially when the topic was not about Google Chrome in the first place.
