Error Message - Following Plugin Is Unresponsive - Shockwave Flash

Every time i try to watch a youtube video, i get the error message: _"the following plug-in is unresponsive: shockwave flash_would you like to stop it?" I recently upgraded my windows vista pc to windows 7. I did not have this problem before the upgrade. I cannot access any online flash content through any internet browser.

I am running windows 7 64 bit, but i am always running 32 bit internet browsers. I have uninstalled and reinstalled flash player numerous times. Every time i try to watch a youtube video, i get the error message: "the following plug-in is unresponsive: shockwave flash would you like to stop it?" This crash happens with google chrome, firefox, and internet explorer.

Flash Player Crashes And Itunes Issue

This issue is very frequent and i am really tired of it. I am almost ready to switch to a mac! So quite frequently when i am watching a video on youtube or another streaming video site, randomly the flash player will crash. I have discovered that when flash crashes it brings itunes down with it as well as the ability to play local video in windows media player (itunes will open but will freeze when i try to play music) . Nothing will work again unless i restart the computer.

Everything is up to date etc. I'd like to know if there is a way to track these things to find out exactly what is causing the crash. There must be some kind of software to give you an insight as to what is actually contributing to the issue so it will make it easier to diagnose and fix. I have searched the internet and this seems to be a very big issue although no body knows how to fix it.

Ie8 Crashes When View Web Pages With Flash

I've got 2 windows 7 machines, but on 64-bit processors with the 64-bit version of windows 7 installed. On both of them if we go to a web page with flash on it, and then close internet explorer 8, it will, always crash.

Why is that?  I can avoid if, if i go to some other web page without flash on it, but man that can be hard to remember and sometimes the flash isn't obvious because it isn't moving, so its easy to forget to go to some web page withou a flash item on it, but that's not the point. The point is why in heck does ie8 crash just because there's a flash element on the page?

Shockwave Error When Playing Games Online Or Watching Movies

Okay, i am having a huge issue with my windows 7 operating system. I recently upgraded from windows vista to 7 via the disk dell sent me. I got my operating system free because i purchased after a certain date. Everything worked fine for the first week then i started experiencing error that i cannot seem to find if anyone else has had similar problems. Now i had to do a system roll back, but guess what i still have the problem.

I rolled back to when my shockwave player was working and it continued to not work. Everytime i try to play an online flash game my shockwave fails critically. Even on movies sometimes i am using a dell studio xps 16, with a mobility radeon t9550 at 2. 67 ghz processor speed. There are no problems with my graphics card for it worked for maybe 20 minutes then messed up again. I reinstalled shockwave and still problems. I don't have a virus, i use kaspersky internet security 2010, and it works fine.

Computer Crashes

I recently had a new computer built and had windows 7 pro installed on it. The computer has been checked and all hardware is ok. So someone mentioned that it may be a 3rd party driver issue. I did install a driver for a hp laserjet 4p onto the computer in hopes that it would print ( no luck there either )  after the install the computer crashed the next day when i went to start it up.could it be a driver problem . And if so how do i get an older printer to work with windows 7

Youtube Video Crashes

Youtube video crashes in windows 7 32-bit or 64-bit, using flash player 9 or 10, videos play in chrome just fine. I have 1gb ati 5770 vapor video card, intel system board, i5, 4 gb ram. I have tried both windows 7 64 and 32 bit to no avail. The screen flickers and system reboots.

Video crashes in ie 8 and firefox. They work fine in chrome. I am think of installing vista 32 bit. I wish there was a solution. I have installed whql video drivers. If i disable hardware acceleration in flash. It is more stable, but video quality suffers. Windows is sending the memory dumps, but no solution is available.

Display Driver Crashes

I use a 6 months old xps dell 8000 with windows 7, 64 bit, with an nvidia geoforce gt220 video card. 1 or 2 times a day the monitor goes black and then restores with a message "display driver has stopped responding and recovered. Display driver nvidia windows kernel mode driver ?" This continues to happen for no reason, even though dell has replaced my video card 3 times. With dell customer service help i uninstalled and reinstalled the current drivers from the dell site previous drivers downloaded from the  nvidia site caused other problems which have been resolved. I would appreciate any guidance in resolving this issue which neither dell or nvidia want to claim as their fault.

File Crashes Explorer

A file i have been downloading for a game via bittorent (legal mod for a game) that i was re downloaded to play with friends has been giving me some trouble. It started with bittorrent locking up when trying to check the files after i re started it, so i thought it was the program and uninstalled it and went to delete the 2 files i was downloading. When i try to delete the files it would bring up the recycle task bar and start locking up my computer and eventually crash explorer, even after that i can hear my hard drive making noise so i ran virus scans (avg), hijack this, ccleaner, seagates hard driver check (to see if it was dieing).

And nothing came up. I know have the two files sitting there and if i do anything to them, try to move them, right click them, etc explorer will freeze and crash. And even after it comes back on i can hear my hard drive accessing data or trying to do something. So my best guess is the files got corrupt during the download when i stopped the download and for some reason wont allow me to touch them. Any ideas?

Win 7 Crashes After Any Update

Ok, so i put w7 disc in computer, restart it for booting and installing and there in loading shows blue screen. Then i tried to restart computer again, this time success. Everything looks fine now, i can restart computer and do almost everything, all is working fine. Then i discovered that when i make some automatic update (even sound driver and/or security updates) after restart it crashes, loads the loading picture, screen is starting to be blank, mouse appears on screen and then suddenly it restarts. After restart it gives 2 choices between to run repair computer or start windows normal.

If i choose start windows normal effect is the same - restart before desktop should appear. If i choose repair computer it is scanning something, then when it's done computer need to be restarted, and windows still doesn't work - makes restart before desktop should appear. If i try to repair again, it says that it don't know how to repair it, do i want to send info to ms. I send it from safe mod, because am' on router.

Update Crashes Computer

I have a lenovo thinkpad t400 and running vista business sp2 32bit. I have this problem since october, it seems that after i have install some window update, my computer will sometime freeze and hang either at  the window login page or when it's in the window, so i have to hard reset my computer. An other problem is after i've done the update, my laptop cannot use the thinkpad thinkvantage software such as rescure and recovery to create back. My laptop will hang as if i try to create a back up.

I have try to reset my laptop back to factory setting. At that point, my laptop was able to use to use the thinkvantage software. But again, when i install the window update. It happen again.

I have called up lenovo, they said this is more like a window issue rather then lenovo issue, so they've ask me to contact microsoft. But i hv try eamil them a few times. And they never got back to me.

Also, i have try to use the online chat thing to make contact during office hour, but for some reason, they said my product key for window doesnt work. So i wonder what is happening.

Crashes On Sims And Hp Games

I have played sims 3 and hp games on my vista without any problems until recently. I installed the new sims 3 ambitions and it worked fine. I let my 12 year old sister on to play and as soon as she got on, it crashed (just sims). I figured it was a fluke and started sims again, she was able to play without any problems. Unfortunately, she left sims on my computer for 6 hours while we were out and i didn't find out until later. The next day, i got on sims and after about 15 minutes it crashed on me.

I tried again, same thing. I restarted my computer and tried again. Now, after about 3 minutes on sims the entire computer shuts off. I figured it was just a sims thing and tried to get on my hp games. After about 5 minutes on that my computer shut off. This only happens on games and i am afraid that the video card is messed up.

Win 7 Crashes Randomly

Recently my win 7x64 pro started crashing randomly (and now it crashes extremely often, but still at random) like if you pulled the plug. No bsod, no reboot, no crash-dump, nothing. The system only tells me that it didn't shut down properly.

The pc is a asus aspire m7711 (core2quad q8300, 8gb ram, geforce gt130), nothing clocked, no modifications. I've updated win, updated all drivers (except the ms-teredo-tunneling software, for the win update can't find any driver), turned off several stuff in the hardware manager, that could cause the problem and finally reinstalled win 7 it still crashes, sometimes just a few min after i turned it on but in safe mode the pc is stable. It only crashed once, that was some time ago and in user mode it crashed about 80 times in a week.

And the pc still has warranty, so i won't void it by opening the case. I see this as the last option, because i want to know what causes the problem.

Office 2007 Crashes

Since updating to windows 7 ultimate, i find my office 2007 apps keep stalling, freezing and crashing; windows explorer also keeps having the same issue. It happens when i highlight and copy and try to paste; when i highlight a selected section of text; when i try to drag ppt pictures; when i try to edit excel documents; and when i am on the internet with ie8.

The consistency of the crashes seems to vary. It does not always happen, but of late it has become more consistent. I have read posts on this and find that many people say they are having the same issues.

Pc Crashes And Automatically Restarts

Original title: pc has become massively unstable when i first installed windows 7 my dell desktop was reinvigorated and ran like a fresh young athlete it woke fast and went back to sleep as quickly.

However this is but a distant memory as my once lithe machine is now nothing more than a grumpy unpredictable demon.

My problems are not measured in days or hours my problems can best be grouped in minutes.

1. The machine will simply re-start sometimes i get a warning more often i do not with absolutely no explanation.

2. Firefox 3. 6 crashes normally within minutes of loading, once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

3. Chrome crashes normally within minutes of loading, once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

4. Internet explorer crashes normally within minutes of loading; once it starts crashing there is nothing that will prevent it.

5. Windows desktop manager is either corrupt or just plain angry as it crashes without warning or seeming reason.

Anyone with any suggestions as to where to start looking for the problem, or better still a solution will be listened to with my full attention! The sooner the better please as one more week of this and i am going back to xp pro!

Win 7 Boot Crashes

I have a problem again. The first time it happened i just re-installed windows, but now i don't wan't to do that. I want to fix the problem. And the problem is that, when i start my computer, after the bios post screen, it ends on a black screen. It doesn't show the windows flag (logon) nor let me press f8 for more options. It just frozes in black.

I tryed putting my installation disk and using the recovery utilities. The first time it said that there was a problem with the a start-up thing. Then asked for reset but nothing. I use the installation disk again and tryed loading a previous state. Repairing the strt-up (no error found). But the point is that my laptop won't boot.

For more information: my os is windows 7 professional x86. Fresh installation (formated the disk before install). I've been using it for a while before this to happen. I have office 2010 professional plus beta and visual studio 2010 rc. Note: the recovery said my *** update was yesterday almost at 12 am, and it was something about a %msft% .net 1. 0. 0. 85 (don't remember the exact number though i thinks it may be that). Anyway, restoring didn't work for me this time.
Any help so i don't need to install windows and all my apps again?

Windows Explorer Continually Crashes

Windows explorer continually crashes. Program menu icons are non-functional. Desktop icons are blank white squares. Upgraded from vista business to win 7 professional (32-bit). Updated video driver and bios. Desktop goes blank if i right-click and "refresh". Programs will only run if i know the executable filename and use "run. "

Hardware is lenovo t60p notebook with 3 gb ram. Ati radeon firegl 5250 card, for which there is no windows 7 driver available, so i ran latest driver after using "compatibility checker", which applied xp service pack 2 settings to it. Have tried various other video drivers to no avail. Any workaround? Wrote to lenovo and ati. Notebook is barely 2 years old. There are win 7 drivers for older and lesser radeon firegl cards.

Driver Crashes Flight Simulator X

Vista driver "uiautomationcore.dll" crashes flight simulator x. I get this problem whenever i run fsx, if, i am in a second or third flight, and if i use the mouse to right-click a menu around 18 times. I've tried replacing the dll with the windows 7 version and done tons of other things mentioned on avsim, but i can't get it to stop crashing. Vista's report-problem solution only tells me that i need to run windows update, since it's a system driver, but there's obviously nothing to update.

I'm running fsx sp2 (crashed with sp1 and stock also) and vista sp1. I am at a loss as to why this is happening to me since all the other people. I've found that have had this problem have had it only because they were running the beta of windows 7, and were able to fix it by getting the dll from vista and putting into their windows 7 installation.

I am running windows vista, and as such i can't downgrade to windows vista. I did try upgrading to the windows 7 version of the file, and then it still didn't stop the crashes. One person did recommend downgrading to the 32-bit version of the file since fsx is a 32-bit program, but it didn't fix it.

On a side note, i'm really surprised it would happen to this game since it was made by the same company that made my whole operating system. This does not happen in any other games, and they're 32-bit also.

Win 7 Crashes After Installing More Ram

I bought new ram (4gb) for my system, but as soon as i install it, i get a rash of bluescreen crashes and total shutdowns.

It is the correct type of memory (ddr2), my motherboard can handle up to 16gb (asus p5q se2), and i'm running 64-bit win 7, so i should be able to use past 2gb of ram.

"My computer" shows that the system now has 4gb of ram, as does the bios list, so the sticks must not be faulty.

To make it even more confusing, i can work in safe mode (which is how i'm posting this). I am completely stumped.

Spooler Service Crashes Repeatedly

Just installed windows live essentials beta and now i cannot print anything. Part of the package was live messenger, photo gallery, movie maker, and sync. There was also a connector for ms outlook 2007 that connects to e.g. Linkedin.

I also installed an update for security essentials (kb2254596) as well as a hotfix for windows (kb981621) this morning. I do not know what may have caused this problem - i could print yesterday - but it should be one of the above.

What happens is this: the printer spooler service is started automatically upon starting windows but almost immediately crashes. I can go to printers under control panel and see the printers installed but unless i'm quick they have all disappeared when i open the window - since the spooler service crashes. I've tried restarting the service, but it just crashes again within a few seconds.

I've also tried repairing live essentials beta as well as restarting my computer (several times), but neither seems to make a difference. The event viewer's system log states only that "the print spooler service terminated unexpectedly" along with the number of times it has crashed. There is no error code.

The application log says:

"Faulting application name: spoolsv.exe, version: 6. 1. 7600. 16385, time stamp: 0x4a5bced7

Faulting module name: unknown, version: 0. 0. 0. 0, time stamp: 0x00000000

Exception code: 0xc0000005

Faulting process id: 0x1460

Faulting application start time: 0x01cb17a9e389d336

Faulting application path: c:windowssystem32spoolsv.exe

Faulting module path: unknown

Report id:25eed760-839d-11df-8b1a-f51b53ee2f4b"

I have run the microsoft automated troubleshooting service (, but it finds no errors except that the spooler service is not running. So it suggests to restart it, but upon restart it just crashes again. Obviously, this is no solution.

I have also run the system file checker (sfc) tool, but it finds no problems (no "integrity violations, " as it puts it).

Furthermore, i've run ccleaner to check if there are any errors in the registry, but there is nothing.

I have two "out of the ordinary" printers installed: adobe acrobat 8. 0, i.e. The pdf converter, and printanywhere for printing from my laptop on university printers.

I run windows 7 pro (upgraded from vista business) 32-bit on a thinkpad machine. Please help - i've run out of ideas.

Office 2003 Application Crashes

All, we're rolling out numerous desktop and laptop pcs /w win7 enterprise x74 (mostly new dell stuff) and with office 2003. (Upgrade is not an option at this time as we're a >5000 employees company)we're experiencing some strange appcrashes lately like in word 2003 when using it as e-mail editor in outlook. As soon as we close outlook, word crashes . This happens every time, so it's predictably. Starting outlook in safe mode w/o extensions didn't help. When word is open /w another document (from local disk or server share) then outlook can be started and stopped w/o any issues - so word only crashes if it's started with and stopped with outlook.

Another strange thing is excel dying in an appcrash randomly especially when using the clipboard to paste stuff into a cell. This is not predictable because we don't exactly know which action actually causes the behavior. This happens to fresh installations which are patched to the maximum available level (sp3 including all following patches).
