I've been recently landed into an awkward situation. I am currently using the latest version of flash player. On visiting few websites, the websites ask me to install a flash player in order to use them. So, I installed adobe flash player. But after installing the adobe flash player, on visiting those websites, my browser crashes and a message pops-up, "Google Chrome isn't responding." These are the websites on visiting whom, this problem arises.
Please help. I thought that the problem is associated with windows. So, I reinstalled Win 8.1 but the problem still continues.

IE 10 fails with a browser crash.
Chrome 61 (updated today) reports "Shockwave has crashed. Reload?" If I reload, it crashes again.
Firefox 56.0 and 56.0.1 (updated today) displays a blank screen. On refresh, I get the expected prompt for enabling Adobe Flash. After granting permission, the page begins to load and then reports that Flash has crashed.

Problem started TODAY, occurs on mulitple PCs.
Of course, Adobe provides no way to roll back.
Sorry, I was a little premature. We're still in the process of pushing the bits live. The version with the fix is 188.8.131.52. I expect that they should be live in the next hour or two.
the IE 11 win 10 update vir as well?
Flash Player is a built-in component of Internet Explorer and Edge on Windows 8 and higher. There is no beta program, and a functional fix like this would not meet Microsoft's bar for an out of band release. You'll need to use another browser, or wait until the next generally available release on Patch Tuesday (November 14th).
MSI's out soon?
We do not release beta MSI's, only EXE installers.
184.108.40.206 fixes the crash and is now available.
Please go to get.adobe.com/flashplayer to download the latest version.
We can't speak as to when Google (Chrome) or Microsoft (Win 8.x/10 for Edge/IE) would release the update.
