Shockwave Flash may be busy or it may have stopped responding. You can stop the plug in or continue to see pf the plug in will complete.

What is you browser?

For Firefox:

You can check for problems with current Shockwave Flash plugin versions and try this:

disable protected mode in the Flash plugin (Flash 11.3+ on Windows Vista and later)
disable hardware acceleration in the Flash plugin

Chrome has it's own flash content so you must disable it:

The filename of each plug-in will be listed next to Location. Look at this information, and you'll see that one is stored under [Your User Folder]AppData\Local\Google\Chrome. This is Chrome's integrated plug-in. The other will begin with `C:\Windows\..' . The path names vary depending on your version of Windows. If you're using Windows 8, for example the path for the integrated plug-in is something like C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\36.0.1985.125\PepperFlash\pepflashplayer.dll (the version number may be different).

If both these files offer a Disable link, both are active and likely to be the cause of your browser crashes.

Good luck
