Over the last few days Chrome is giving me the above message anywhere from 3 to 8 or so times a day.
I'm not sure it's related but my computer is freezing once or twice a day and I have to do a hard shut off and re-boot.
How can I fix this?
It turns out that there were 2 versions installed in chrome and one had to be disabled. Details here: http://www.howtogeek.com/103292/how-to-fix-shockwave-flash-crashes-in-google-chrome/
I did this and all seems well now for over a week.
