This notification pops up just about everyday and the result is videos will not play on any web page. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling Shockwave and Google Chrome, this also occurs in all other browsers but Chrome is my default. A temp fix is to restart my laptop but I'd like to not have to do that every day. Please and thanks!

P.S. iTunes doesn't run audio when this Shockwave problem occurs, Idk if related or not but just something to ponder on! Thanks.

I have 8gb of ram installed. Is it a possibility that not enough ram is dedicated to chrome or something? I don't see how dedicating ram would solve it considering it doesnt take a lot of ram to run a browser.

Have you check the plugins running for your browser if you have more than one for chrome browser they can conflict. type chrome://plugins into your browser and press enter try disabling any that might be conflicting. You can disable/enable by trial.

Look for any entries in the list such as Adobe Flash Player, or Shockwave Flash. If you can see two or more, you have more than one Flash plug-in installed.

As of right now I have only Adobe Flash Player plugin on chrome. Like I said before, this doesn't only affect Chrome as a browser. It also affects all video and audio media on my computer and other browsers. I'm getting the feeling its a bug with the computer that may be harder to fix than I previously thought.

If it does try the following in the plug in screen
click on [+] toggle option, adjacent to Details link in the upper right-hand corner of the browser window.
To expand the plugin

Take a closer look at the expanded entry you'll see two entries for plugin, one is for Google chrome

Did it look like this
Adobe Flash Player (2 files) - Version: 13.0.0.182
or did it look like this
Adobe Flash Player (1 files) - Version: 13.0.0.182
Which one can you see,
Sorry for asking you several times but one shows two files the other shows one file, just making sure your are seeing what I'm asking?
Your version may be different.

So if it showing 2 files look over to the far right corner and click in the square box with the plus sign (+) you'll have to imagine that is a square box and you normally have to disable the lower of the two when it expands as stated in earlier post,.

This is the usual fix for the issue you are experiencing.
