Question about PC Desktops

I downloaded Adobe Shockwave and now I have no sound on my computer at all. I've tried uninstalling the program to see if my sound would return, but no. I've reinstalled Shockwave and it's still the same. Absolutely no sound now with any program.

#1, see if it somehow disable or muted your sound card.
Look in Device Manager for the disabled indication, go to control panel for audio controls to see if the mute was turned on.

If it is enabled, and the mute is not on, I would try reloading the drivers for your audio card.

Shockwave is usually a very unobtrusive software, so this is kind of unusual.

Have you installed the shockwave plug in, you will need it to play these games.
If you have it may be corrupt, uninstall it and try again.

'Failed to install. For Troubleshooting please see: http://www.adobe.com/go/tn_19166'for windows xp


I'm assuming that you were trying to install Adobe Flash Player. The best thing to do would be to remove Flash Player from your system entirely, and then try a clean install. Please go to http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html and click on the link following the word "Windows" below the text "1. Download the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller." Save this file to your desktop. Shut down ALL programs that you have running. Look in the system tray (next to the time) to make sure that everything is closed.

Run the uninstaller by clicking on the file that was placed on your desktop. You may be asked to restart your system. If you are, please do that before going any farther.

Once Flash Player is completely gone from your computer, please go to http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/triggerpages/flash.html . Wait for a few minutes. When Flash Player is reinstalled, you will see a quick Flash animation in the middle of the lighter blue box telling you that your installation is complete.

Each time you upgrade your Flash Player, you should use this routine to ensure that no parts of the old version are left over to cause problems for the newest version.

Hope this helps! Diana Wellspring

Check out the Add Remove Panel for the Latest installation of

I'm having trouble with the shockwave game supermarket mania, it was playing fine and now i try and play and in just get me to the exit screen. I would like to uninstall shockwave so i can reinstall it.


START - CONTROL PANEL - ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS THEN ....
First make sure you UNINSTALL the SHOCKWAVE GAME from the System... then make sure you don't already have shockwave installed on your PC. If you do... REMOVE IT! Reboot the system without either the game or the shockwave software .. once you have done that, First REINSTALL SHOCKWAVE, and upon completion of that install the game again.
Be SURE that the game does not try to install an OLDER VERSION of Shockwave with the game.
Hope that works for you......

Flash 9 freezes after 1st. video plays on The Fan.


Lets Start from here:

Before you install Shockwave Player for any Windows browser, uninstall all previous versions.
In order to remove the Shockwave player, simply use the file UNWISE.EXE located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave 11. Windows users can also use the Add/Remove programs located in the Windows control panel. This will remove the Shockwave 10 player
For the Shockwave 8 and 8.5 there is an uninstaller available from the Web Players page.
Note: All applications must be closed before you run the Shockwave Player uninstaller. Quit all running applications, including all Internet Explorer or other browser windows, and all Instant Messenger clients. Check the Windows system tray carefully to make certain no applications which might possibly use Shockwave Player are still in memory.
After you have removed previous versions, you are ready to download and/or install Shockwave Player.

Before installing Shockwave Player, please check the following browser settings:
Internet Explorer ActiveX settings

Browser security settings should be chosen by you or by your system administrator. For single users who do not have an administrator, the Medium: Default Level allows you to view Shockwave content. For any Custom Level, ensure that both the "Download Signed ActiveX controls" and "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" options are set to "Prompt".

To change security level in Internet Explorer:

1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Choose Tools > Internet Options.
3. Select the Security tab.
4. Select Custom Level.
5. Find the section "ActiveX controls and plug-ins".
6. Set ' Download Signed ActiveX Controls' to Prompt.
7. Set 'Run ActiveX Controls And Plug-ins' to Prompt.

If you are having trouble installing, make sure that your Internet Explorer security level is not set to High or to a custom level that does not allow viewing of ActiveX controls.
Computer user permissions

User permissions determine whether or not you are allowed to install ActiveX controls or plug-ins. If you don't have Administrator access to Windows XP SP2, or Vista you may not be able to install Shockwave Player successfully. Administrative privileges are required for the Windows system registry and for the C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave folder.
If the ActiveX Control for Shockwave Player fails to install, download the executable installer.

If the information above has not resolved the issue, download the executable Shockwave Player installer here:

* Download and latest Shockwave Player Installer.

Save this installer to your desktop, close out all applications, and run the installer. This may help if you are having trouble with the ActiveX installation from Adobe.com. To confirm that Shockwave Player has installed successfully, please click here. The two movies will show if you have Flash and Shockwave Players installed. The version numbers of the both Players will be displayed in the test movie.
