Chrome: Could not load shockwave flash

I had an expired Flash - Firefox. For some weird reason, I made an upgrade. (I don't really use Firefox)
This messed up my Chrome Flash. I had "Could not load shockwave flash", and that nice looking grey thing.
Went on to google it, tried several things.

  • chrome setting, something needs to be disabled (when you have 2 plugins)
  • delete some files from some flash folder on C drive
  • uninstall plugins, reinstall them

Nothing worked.

I finally uninstalled chrome, and reinstalled it. I didn't lose anything. Browsing history, shortcuts, home page, extensions (even an extension that is no longer in Chrome app store).

Flash also worked flawlessly after this.
