I have been running version 3 beta for a while now and I have (3) programs that do not upgrade or patch.
The one that is most frustrating is shockwave as multiple times a day I get a pop up stating that I have a newer version running and the version 8 can not be updated.
I press the OK button and a while later it pops up again.

I did go into control panel and removed the version 8 and rebooted and rescanned but it still pops up.

Any suggestions?

This should clear shockwave.


1. Uninstall Shockwave for your OS from the clearly marked link below:

2. Reinstall Shockwave from here:

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

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