SHOCKWAVE

1. Uninstall Shockwave for your OS from the clearly marked link below:
http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/alternates...

2. Reinstall Shockwave from here:
http://get.adobe.com/shockwave/

3. If you wish to test your new Shockwave Player the link is:

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

4. Complete a full PSI rescan. That should have cleared the problem? If not, please publish the troubleshoot report as outlined here:
