Sometimes when I try to watch a stream on twitch or a video on youtube in google chrome a message pops up saying "A plug-in (Shockwave Flash) isn't responding" and it gives me an option to stop the plug-in but that does nothing. I have a short term fix where I restart my laptop and then it's fine until later that day where it occurs again. It has become an annoyance and I don't want to keep restarting my laptop. Any suggestions on how to fix it?
Have you tried uninstalling it and downloading the latest version and installing it?
This could help.
Also what browser are you using? Chrome comes with it's own version of flash. If you're using an alternative browser (Opera, Chrome, FireFox, etc) try using IE and see if that makes a difference. If you are using IE, try using Chrome. This could help narrow down the problem.
