When you are watching a page loaded with flash content in Google Chrome browser, all of a sudden, flash player plug-in will crash and that tab becomes unresponsive and Chrome asks to stop the crashed flash player, sometimes closing the non-responsive tab will close the Chrome browser.

Fix ‘Please close all Google Chrome windows and try again’

Since Flash player integrated into Google Chrome, we don’t need to manually update the flash player plug-in as Chrome looks after it.

As Chrome runs each tab in a separate process, we can not lose the other open tabs, but we can close the unresponsive or not responding tab by pressing Shift + Esc to bring up the Task Manager, then select the task that was causing the browser to crash or hang and click ‘End Process‘.
