O.k. some times these can be rather difficult to remove, especially if you had a bad download. Start by going to and downloading CCleaner. CCleaner is extremely useful in these situations, and is also a good tool to use on a regular basis in order to keep your machine running smoothly and at optimum performance. Once you have the CCleaner, then open the shockwave and check to see if there is an automatic update setting, if so, disable it. Also disable any features that you can. Now, open the CCleaner, and in the tools section, remove the shockwave player. The tools section is an uninstaller that works better than the Windows add and remove programs. After removing the shockwave, run the registry cleaner, then the regular cleaner. Don't worry about backing up the registry file to be removed/fixed, the cleaner will not delete any necessary fies unless you have set it to in the advanced options. I don't recommend adjusting any of the advanced settings. If the CCleaner will not remove the shockwave in the tools section, then run the registry cleaner first, then remove it, then the registry again, then the regular cleaner. In some instances there is a glitched registry file that will not allow the removal, and usually this glitched registry file was the corrupted file in the bad download and the reason it didn't work properly.

Hi, just finished downloading Java, but still cant watch anything. What am I missing? Thanks for your help

I am not sure you would need Java to watch videos on the web. I could be wrong, but may you should try installing the Adobe flash player and then see if the videos work.

Hope that helps!

I am trying to download Adobe Flash Player without Mcafee Security Scan Plus. I have installed in at least twice it's showing that it has been installed sucessfully. But i still cant watch...

The easier way is , delete The adobe flash player that you had installed . Go to you tube site and try to play a video there . You tube will demand you to install the missing plug-ins . Click on the icon that says you have to install missing plug-ins. You will be directed at adobe download and install, click on download. If it promps you to save File, save it. Then install that file, if you are using firefox and your installation stops , just exit firefox, not the installation process, installation will automatically continue and will be finished. Then open you tube again and try to play videos. Hope this would help a little friend. Have a nice surfing !

Help My farmville will not load at all. I tried to upgrade the adobe and that won't work eather Help

Sorry Farmville I have no advice. Adobe Flash Player > Yes.

When upgrading to a newer version of Adobe Reader Flash Player, the old version does not automatically get deleted. You have to manually delete it yourself. (Not that hard. Read on)

If the old version isn't deleted, the new version will not install.

To delete the old version us the Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller, from


Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page.
Where it states the heading > Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller, go below, and click on the blue >
Tech Note.

This is where it takes you. I just wanted you to see the main Adobe Flash Player Support page,
and know this is the genuine thing,


On this page go to number 1. in the list, and click on the blue > uninstall_flash_player.exe

After you click on the file name a small window will come up.
Opening uninstall_flash_player.exe

Click on Save File.
In the next small window that comes up on the left, quickly observe the heading.
This tells you where the file will go.

The file may go to your desktop screen. Minimize all windows, and look at your desktop.

If not the file may go to your My Documents folder. (WinXP)
Click on Start > My Documents, and see if it's there. (uninstall_flash_player.exe)

It may be within a sub-folder of My Documents called Downloads.
Click on Start > Double-click on My Documents > Double-click on Downloads.

When you see the file name Double-click on it.
Follow the simple instructions.

If you are asked, restart your computer. If you are not asked restart anyway.

After Windows has fully loaded again, go back to the first Adobe Flash Player link, and download the newest version of Adobe Flash Player.
(Click on the white f in the red box to the left of > Get the latest version)

After downloading, and installing the latest version of Adobe Flash Player, be sure to restart your computer again.
