Try turning off that setting.
so my computer keeps taking a really long time to load some pages on the internet. Even logging in to my email on yahoo can take forever when using Chrome, only for the page to finally say "following plug-in has crashed: shockwave flash'. Does anyone know how to get rid of this problem? I use Vista
Yes I went to the Adobe site to test it but there was no test... It just told me what I had for the Google Chrome browser... I checked my computer's and it listed an older version. I tried to update it but recieved the message "Google Chrome has the latest edition" and that I didn't need to update it. I went to the plug-in on Chrome and it said to update the shockwave..... I did it but still have problems with Zynga games freezing up.
I read your replies and it never seems you made the change.
YOU are OK. It's the software makers that should be flamed here. Why didn't Adobe detect this issue instead of creating more angst for you?
My advice is not intended to make you feel bad. Why should folk today have to deal with such things?
I read the thread: http://forums.cnet.com/7723-6122_102-519707.html
When I went to the Adobe site, my flash passed the test even though my browser (Chrome) said that the plug-in had crashed. I found the settings and unchecked the hardware acceleration. However, using the internet is very bad because the pages often don't refresh, etc.
Online email is non-functional.
I have an Acer laptop i5 chip 2.27Ghz with Windows 7.
Help would be appreciated!
1. Updating the video driver for your computer's video card? (Updating ALL drivers would be even better.)
2. Scanning for malware with BOTH of the free tools below:
SUPERAntispyware Removal Tool
3. Disabling all add-ons/toolbars on your browser?
Hope this helps.
