You can check for problems with current Flash plugin versions and try these:
- disable a possible RealPlayer Browser Record Plugin extension for Firefox and update the RealPlayer if installed
- disable protected mode in Flash 11.3 and later
- disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin
I dont have real player, disabled the hardware acceleration , tried to disable protection mode could not. Is there anything else I try everything but no it still does not work. Here are some crash reports,this is happenning on my laptop as well, I have read and tried everthing on the forum please help

I know this is going to sound very random, but could you keep Adobe's about page open in a separate window tab while you're browsing?
Three minutes after you close all pages that use Flash, several different software components unload. Then when you visit another page that uses Flash, they have to load again. By keeping one Flash tab open at all times, we hopefully could bypass issues related to this process of Flash loading and unloading.
This is the page I'm referring to: http://www.adobe.com/software/flash/about/
Thanks I will try this
Thanks but it did not work tried for a couple days but will keep going Thanks
in order to repair the issue with shockwave crashing you must install the debugger from adobe that was recently released ... Link provided below
scroll down until you see the system and installation type you have installed ... worked awesome for me =)
Hi konamocha, did you see any page explaining the difference between the "debugger" version and the standard plugin?
This page makes it sound as though it might not be the best release for the average user: Uninstalling Adobe Flash Player Debugger.
4/9/2013 – Updated debugger and standalone versions of Flash Player. These players contain fixes for critical vulnerabilities identified in Security Bulletin APSB13-11 . The latest versions are 11.7.700.169 (Win and Mac) and 18.104.22.1680 (Linux). All users are encouraged to update to these latest versions.
It stopped mine from crashing and this is the one that they posted for the 64 system
it did not do a complete install .. it just added components to the existing on my system
Thank nyou I will tryn it, I am using windows 7 but will try it. Thank you
Thanks but it did not work I still get the flash player is not working.
