Each time I play a video, Chrome crashes. I have done some research and apparently it's related to a conflict with the Flash plug-ins. I checked my plugins and I have THREE flash plugins (11.3r300, 11.2r31, 11.2r202). I have tried all possible combinations: leaving one enabled and disabling the other two, enabling two and disabling one, and enabling all three. This is very frustrating. None of these combinations is working and Chrome always crashes when I play a video. Any other suggestions?

Webkit doesn't like flash, the same thing happens with safari. The best thing you can do is uninstall and reinstall the latest version of flash. Having three versions doesn't really help.

Thanks. I don't know where all these plugin versions have come from. The latest scenario is that I have disabled the oldest two plugin versions, and keep the most recent enabled in the plugin list. There is no way to remove the older versions, only "disable or enable" unfortunately. Chrome still crashes with this scenario, however.

I looked in the control panel at the add/remove software list and here is what is listed:

Adobe Flash Player 11 Plugin (the 3 versions are not listed)
Adobe Flash Player Active X
Adobe Shockwave Player 11.6

Do I need all 3 of these?

As far as updates, I always update when prompted. Which one would I update as you suggest?

I don't know (I'm a mac user so i'm not sure about the windows set up.) Personally I would just uninstall all three, then go to adobe website and download the latest flash player.

I used to have the same problem on Linux with Chromium. They already issued a fix though. It should come soon for windows users.

A fiend recently had problems with Chrome and google. When he removed google in HOST, and then rebooted the problem was solved. Search engines are not necessary in the HOST files.
