You can remove the vulnerabilty by cicking on the + sign to the left of the file detected :-
Instances Found:
C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Director\np32dsw.dll, version: 11.6.0.626 (NPAPI)


and then click on the folder icon on the right....the one without the dot.
Explorer will then take you to the file, which you can right click on and delete.

.You can then reinstall Shockwave,if you wish, from here:
http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/

To test your new Shockwave Player the link is:

http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/welcome/

Carry out a full psi scan, and all should be in order.

Hope the foregoing is of help.........regards,
