Flash Crash Issue in Google Chrome

As most of you know Adobe Flash Player is a plug-in that enables viewing multimedia content. It's a common experience that Flash crashes a lot, especially while watching a YouTube video. If you're going through the same experience, you've come at the right place. We'll provide simple and quick troubleshooting instructions to get rid of this problem.

The problem is that your computer has two versions of Flash Player installed, viz. internal and external version. The former comes with the browser. The latter is used for other browser which causes conflicts with the former. Check for the internal Flash version and disable it to prevent conflicts.

For Windows 8.1/ 8 and Earlier Versions:
1. Open Chrome through its desktop shortcut.
2. Type €about: plugins€ (delete the space in between)
3. Press ENTER.
4. A new page will open in a new tab showing list of all installed plug-ins.
5. You would find two versions of Flash listed in the page.
6. Simply disable the internal version, and then close and re-open the application program.

Remember that DLLs/ ActiveX file registration entries are corrupted. Use the ZombieSoftFix. Check for the registration entries of those files and resolve any issues that are found. I bet after restarting the PC it'll work normal.

Extensions are the third party add-ons that are installed in your browser. Malfunctioning extensions are the core reason behind Flash crash issue in Google Chrome. Load the list of all extensions and then disable all the third party extensions that you see.

For Windows 8.1/ 8 and Earlier Versions:
1. Click the Wrench icon.
2. Select Tools | Extensions.
3. Disable all extensions.

You might have to reset your browser settings. Restoring the default settings will prevent crashes. Here are the steps to reset the same:
For Windows 8.1/ 8 and Earlier Versions:

1. Click the Wrench icon.
2. Select Settings.
3. Click €Show advanced settings€ link.
4. Click the button labelled €Reset browser settings€.

The Sandbox feature deals with security of the browser. Do not use the sandbox feature to get rid of frequent crashes. This is how to fix Flash crash issue in Google Chrome.

For Windows 8.1/ 8 and Earlier Versions:
1. Right click the desktop shortcut of the program.
2. Select Properties.
3. Click the Shortcut tab.
4. Add the following in Target box:
€--no-sandbox€
5. Click Apply | OK.
