Shockwave Flash for ActiveX

CNET Editors' review

Adobe's latest version of the Flash Player browser plug-in is just as trouble-free as previous versions, existing unobtrusively in your system until Web-based animations, games, or ubiquitous Flash ads require its services.

The latest version downloads and installs quickly, and will probably always require a browser restart. Our tests turned up nothing to make us scratch our heads, and upgrading from version 9 to the current one has fixed for many people a bug that caused embedded video to freeze.

You need a Flash Player to experience the Web at its fullest, so users at any level of expertise should have no qualms about installing or upgrading to Flash 10.

    "Absolute Garbage, thanks Adobe!"

    April 15, 2014  |   By TxTom

    Version: Shockwave Flash for ActiveX 13.0.0.182

    Pros

    None. The update stinks.

    Cons

    Takes up disc space and does nothing but crash.

    Summary

    V13 is a complete failure on the Mac at this point.

    "Dead on arrival"

    April 15, 2014  |   By shineola77

    Version: Shockwave Flash for ActiveX 2.0

    Pros

    Cannot find a single good thing to say

    Cons

    Does not work with MAC X with /firefox, not eevn a little bit

    Summary

    Adobe notified me that there was an upgrade to my flash player available and since flash seemed to be slowing my on line life, I opted for it and then my child wanted to see her Frozen song on You tube and I got the old error message and the query about reporting it to presumably Adobe which is about as much use as reporting injustice to the Justice department.
    I shall be happy when flash falls into the dustbin of history along with Stacker, the Bournolli Box and the Osborn 64

    "Does nothing but crash"

    March 31, 2014  |   By nmweatherman

    Version: Shockwave Flash for ActiveX 12.0.0.77

    Pros

    None whatsoever

    Cons

    Doesn't work with my browser at all

    Summary

    I am running XP Pro with a Chrome browser and this software does not work at all with Chrome. Almost instantly I get messages that it has crashed or is unresponsive. I've given it four trials but now its history. It is simply incompatible with Chrome I guess. Plus when it's crashing it freezes up my web pages. Nothing but trouble.

    "Crashing for weeks"

    March 29, 2014  |   By essaadams

    Version: Shockwave Flash for ActiveX 12.0.0.77

    Pros

    A fix would be a pro. An update would be a pro. But nothing to fix this issue is a con all the way.

    Cons

    Crashing - and the box that freezes me from working - well h*^# I know it crashed, now leave me alone to work. Who thought of this version? I have had professional support techs on / in my computer for hours on end to uninstall, reinstall, repair, re-register, and do all their tricks and it is the same. So I just reinstall myself. Any thing can crash it. Going to a recipe site, to Facebook, to my work site, to my own website where there isn't even a slideshow or flash in use. And NOW it is bringing in the email message I may be writing so I have to get that out of the way too. Sometimes I have to click it out of the way 2 times or 25 times. Reinstall and may get an hour or 10 hours or 10 minutes. Fix it! I use Firefox. Techs also set me up for Chrome in case, but I have no interest and it crashes there anyway.

    Summary

    Fix it!. They need to fix it.

    "Latest version started crashing and freezing browser."

    March 19, 2014  |   By tembuktoo

    Version: Shockwave Flash for ActiveX 12.0.0.77

    Pros

    The past two updates before the March 11th version worked fine.

    Cons

    Latest version of software dated March 11th started crashing and freezing the browser today(March 19th). Seems like the programmers intentionally program issues into the software so they will have job security.

    Summary

    As soon as someone somewhere comes up with ANY alternative to this software I am dumping it immediately.

    "Version 12 fails. To load, install, or run."

    February 8, 2014  |   By pyotr576

    Version: Shockwave Flash for ActiveX 12.0.0.44

    Pros

    It is free.

    Cons

    It does not install - the "installer" program deletes itself, does something, but it does not install. Not to Firefox.

    I give it one star because I cannot not give it zero.

    Summary

    how many times do I have to download and install Flash 12 before it actually installs and works in Firefox?

    "Adobe: The Worst Apps on Earth"

    February 4, 2014  |   By Netteligent

    Version: Shockwave Flash for ActiveX 12.0.0.43

    Pros

    Nothing but annoying updates and junks

    Cons

    Nothing but annoying web site to force its users to install Adobe apps. Then Adobe installed McAfee in your computers. Users ends up with nothing with junks.

    Summary

    We highly recommend not to visit any web sites using proprietary technology or platform like Adobe.
    Users end up with nothing but junks in their computers.

    "No download !!!!"

    January 28, 2014  |   By Ta0RX

    Version: Shockwave Flash for ActiveX 12.0.0.43

    Pros

    Flash is a must have to any computer ... Never had any problem with it till this latest version ... because I don't have it yet, I'm having issues with many websites.

    Cons

    Same as NKalanaga, can't download the update because the link to it isn't working ... it just redirects to the home page.

    Summary

    I'm surprised that Adobe is taking so much time to repair this link problem ... it's even kind of silly that the Adobe update software in my machine urges me to update now and there's no link to download it in site ... Hope this will be fixed soon, would really appreciate it. Thanks.

    "Fools never learn, but hope springs eternal"

    January 22, 2014  |   By nmweatherman

    Version: Shockwave Flash for ActiveX 12.0.0.43

    Pros

    None yet.....

    Cons

    Doesn't work with Chrome

    Summary

    I am here to try this flash player yet again. It is said that if your run Google Chrome as a browser that Chrome comes with this flash player. I run Chrome, but this flash player doesn't work. I get endless warning messages when I go to this or that website that "Flash Player isn't working" or "Flash player has crashed." Got so tired of it I uninstalled it. All I can say is well, here we go again. Is there no flash player out there that will work with Chrome? I am NOT changing browsers. (I use Windows XP Pro SP2).
