Have you tried to uninstall Adobe shockwave and reinstall it after reboot too?
If yes then what kind of alerts are showing up in Event Viewer after this "crashes"?

Actually this problem occurs due to certain errors related to Flash plugin in your system. The corruption in sound drivers and the incorrect registry settings in your Windows also result in Shockwave plugin crash. The guidelines given here will help you to fix the problem at ease.
* Uninstall the Flash player and active-x plugin. Afterwards reinstall it.
* Try to change the version of the Adobe Shockwave as sometimes the programs do not function well due to various internal conflicts. Get the most recent version.
* Update your system drivers
* Especially update the sound drivers.
The above guidelines allow you to take measures to find an easy solution to the problem.
I also got some help from this article to fix flash player crashes
Hope it fix your problem.
