Weird crash window with Chinese characters

I keep getting this window, and Chrome freezes. I do a ctrl-al-delete hard quit because I'm afeared it's a virus. Anyone have a clue what this is? Cheers!

I just experienced the same thing - and this is one of the few Google hits in english I managed to find. Anyone know what this is? It's pretty scary looking!

I received this too. Chrome (10.0.648.204 , Official Build 79063) was about to play a video on a news site (smh.com.au) when the video player locked up. Other tabs were functional, but I was unable to close the tab with the video. Chrome then crashed with a similar message:

I think it is a problem with Adobe Flash.

Same here; it happened when I was watching a video on Youtube. After clicking OK, Chrome kept running but said that Shockwave Flash crashed.

Um, so, Google, do we all have the same virus or is this just the same old "Flash crashes in Chrome" with an Asian twist?

Getting the exact same error message here. Occuring from any number of Flash-related crashes: myspace music player, streaming video, etc. Reading around it doesn't seem to be a virus - more likely an error on Google's part but who can say at this stage. Interested to see where this goes. Really don't want to change browser and for usability and speed I'd pick Chrome hands-down, but it's becoming SO unstable...

I too am having the same issue. The error message I receive reads 'The instruction as 0x1c4159a9 referenced memory at 0x00000000. The memory could not be read.'
The title of the message is the same chinese characters listed above.
 
This does not happen when I am watching videos on sites like Hulu and youtube. The crash only occurs with specific pop ups with flash content like the ones for LiveJasmin. However, apart from the crash and error message when I receive certain flash pop ups I now have the issue of flash videos not loading at all on some sites. One example would be all videos on Roosterteeth.com. I can watch their videos on youtube, but if I try to watch the same video on their site all I get is a blank grey box. This problem did not start until the error messages started, so I feel strongly that they are related.
 
I have the same problem across all browsers, I just noticed it first in Chrome since it was my default. I am running windows 7 and have video acceleration disabled. Acceleration was on previously, but I disabled it in a vain attempt to figure out just what was going on.

I have also been experiencing this issue within the past week.
Running Google Chrome, and will randomly see it happen without any apparent trigger.
I will see several other boxes appearing around behind the Chinese character titled memory error, but they vanish as Shochwave crashes out.
Virus scans turn up nothing and it doesn't seem to be occurring off of any particular websites or videos.
Warm reinstalls of Shockwave have not affected it, haven't tried a full uninstall/reinstall yet.

Outsourcing to China seems to be a wide phenomena these days. Just another reason Adobe Flash needs to be phased out with HTML5.
