When browsing in Google chrome, I get an error message
The exception unknown software exception (0x40000015) occurred in the application at location 0x0025bf18.
I get a pop-up message later saying that the Shockwave plugin is not responding.
I've tried uninstalling and re-installing Chrome (even by clearing my browsing data while uninstalling) and still the error persists.
There are 2 instances of Shockwave that I could see in my Chrome by typing
chrome://plugins. I've tried disabling either of those alternatively too. This prevents me from browsing a lot of sites including FB and Stackoverflow through my favorite browser. I don't have any problem when I work from Internet Explorer.
