When you visit such heavy websites using your chrome browser, you may find shockwave flash problems in chrome. Either flash crashing the chrome browser or you get the annoying message – Shockwave Flash has crashed.

If you see Flash (2 files) then it is understood that you’ve installed it two times. On the right side of same window, you can find Details. Click the + button to expand and show some details of it.

Now you need to disable one flash plugin. You should disable the one which is installed in the chrome app data folder. The location something like C:\Users\name\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome …

Restart the browser for the changes to take effect. Mostly this will fix the problems that you’re facing because of Shockwave flash issues.
