    Chrome has started playing up and I cannot find an answer. Its seems some things need adobe flashplayer and some need shockwave flashplayer BUT the two run together causes a conflict. I can disable either but still have a problem.
    Any answers out there please.

    Try Firefox, now V36 and I've been using it since V3, never let me down.

    There's another thing - some Flash players in Chrome can bugger around with your sound output. For example playing music on iTunes while browsing with Chrome can create a scratchy record effect on your speakers.

    The answer is in the thread title. Do as Brian recommends and move to Firefox :)

    Huh !!!!

    And you got problems.

    Adobe Flash player is not supported on Android at all.

    Bloody pain having to put some coal on my laptop boiler to view some videos.
