Remove Corrupted Flash Player Registry Entries

In most cases I have seen, the Flash Player registry settings were in bad state. For example, registry entries with missing/ invalid data were found. Remove such entries and repair the registry as soon as possible.

1. Download a Registry Fixing Tool, for example, Reginout Registry Cleaner. 2. Install and run the application. 3. From the Registry Cleaner tab, click Start Scan in the welcome page. 4. When the scan results appear, click the button Fix Now to start repairing the problems found.

Why manual registry modification is prohibited?

I do not recommend you modifying the registry your own because:

1. Registry is a highly sensitive area (scientifically called, database) in your computer system. 2. If anything goes wrong while modifying the registry your own, it could make your system instable and your system may start crashing or showing errors & BSOD. 3. Not all readers are computer experts. Not all the readers have knowledge of finding errors from the registry and modifying it properly.

Disable your Antivirus Protection

Conflicts with your antivirus protection can result in Flash Player crashes. Disable your antivirus protection temporarily to fix the problem.

1. Click the Show Hidden Icons arrow on your System Tray. 2. Right click your antivirus software icon, and select Real-Time Protection | Disable. 3. If a confirmation message is appeared, confirm your action.

Remove the Temporary Internet Files

Clear the web browser cache, temporary internet files and other things that can result in Flash Player crashes. To do so, use the Disk CleanUp software.

1. Click Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Disk CleanUp. 2. Select a disk and click OK. 3. Follow the instructions your own.

Rename a Conflicting System File

A file called BtwVdpCapFilter1.dll sometimes results in Flash Player crashes. Rename it and re-start your web browser.

1. Close Internet Explorer. 2. Open My Computer, and browse the following location:


3. Rename the file BtwVdpCapFilter1.dll as backup_ BtwVdpCapFilter1.dll 4. Re-start Internet Explorer.

Download the following repair tool to automatically fix Adobe Flash Player crashes without doing anything with your computer. It is comparatively safe and quick option to fix your problem.
