What area would I go to so I can find out how to fix this annoying Shockwave Flash crash issue? 
Reading some of the things on this website has been such a great help, but I just can't seem to understand what to do about these crashes. Sometimes if I click the 'reload' it works god for awhile... but other times I have to 'restart' the machine.

I get "Shockwave Flash not repsonding", "has Crashed" etc

If I continue to click "reload this page" about 7-10 times it will sometimes begin to play.

I ran Windows Fix (all in one) Tweaking Windows and for a about an hour or so seemed everything ran great.

Then thing declined to the same issues. There must be something I can do, short of totally reinstalling Windows 10.

I have removed and re-installed Shockwave Flash.

I would appreciate anyone's help.
