Not sure why this keeps happening on my Latitude D620 with XP Pro. 

I frequently get pages that don't respond or the error "A plug-in (Shockwave Flash) is not responding."
And then it locks up for a while and slows everything down. 

 

Any ideas what I can do?

 

Thanks so much.

I have found that many bad things can happen if you download Shock Wave from any other place except Adobe.
Try this.

Are you using Google Chrome?

Yes, I'm using Chrome. 

Should I uninstall Flash and then reinstall it from the link above?

I'm assuming Shockwave and Flash are interchangeable.

Google Chrome comes with flashplayer.

 

If you have installed another copy of flash player uninstall it as see if the problem stops.

 

If this doesn't resolve your problem uninstall Chrome and reinstall it.

 

I'm assuming Shockwave and Flash are interchangeable.

 

Adobe Flash Player and Adobe Shockwave Player

I switched to Firefox and stopped having problems.

It seems like a miracle.

I've been cursing this computer for so long because of this problem.

I also uninstalled Adobe Shockwave Flash.

 

We can close this issue.

Thanks so much!
