Re: Chrome crashing with adobe flashplayer plugin

First things first, if you haven't rebooted since you started experiencing this issue, start there. 

If the problem persists, there's a good chance the Flash Player included with Chrome was corrupted somehow.  The easiest approach is to just remove and reinstall Chrome.

Based on the symptoms, I'm leaning towards a client-side problem -- either a corrupted binary, or maybe a weird permission thing, like a group policy that's applied in your enterprise, which restricts access to required files or registry keys that we would assume normal access to. 

Google has excellent telemetry, and is very fast to raise new issues like this in the field.  This is definitely not a widespread issue on the radar at the moment.

It's also possible that it's a driver thing.  Early Conextant audio drivers on Win10 were very problematic, but aside from that, driver-related stability issue would typically be limited to video or 3D content.

If you're still stuck, let us know, and we can collect more detailed forensics.

Re: Chrome crashing with adobe flashplayer plugin

I have rebooted multiple times after issue started. I try yesterday to uninstall then reboot, I install again but same behavior, I restart today and issue persist after the new installation. I have an Intel Lynx Point-LP soundcard, I'm using Microsoft drivers. Could you please confirm what else I can check?

Re: Chrome crashing with adobe flashplayer plugin

Just for grins, lets try disabling hardware acceleration.

Instructions are in the video troubleshooting guide, below:

If you're still stuck, please follow the directions in the guide on providing the dxdiag report and additional information about what you tested and saw.

If you can, it would be *really* helpful if you can grab the crash dump from Chrome:
