A friend was have flash crashes so we looked around and since nothing from Adobe resolved the issue we went over the machine AGAIN. We found old spybot which was OVERLAPPING PROTECTION with their Norton so after tossing out many softwares it was better but still not fixed. The final apparent fix was when we changed video cards. We went with the other major video card chip maker.
I have removed(with Revo Uninstaller, NOT thru Windows Remove) Shockwave and reinstalled it beaucoup times, but still sooner or later I get the fatal message - It crashed. What to do? I have Windows XP and altho I don't use IE much, I have to download Shockwave 11, using IE or go thru some hoops sing an alternative browser like Firefox.
