I am running KIS 2009
It seems to feel that my newly updated (after I restart my system later) Shock Wave Player plug in is a threat?
Just wondering if I should remove shockwave altogether?
To be honest, I'm not sure what Shockwave's purpose is. Does it have anything to do with Messenger? I rarely use that program. Just checked + it's Windows Live Messenger.

Thank you

Shockwave is made by Adobe and considered safe.

Shockwave is still being used??? :thumbsup:

If so, then I'm very much out of it.

Shockwave is used lightly, as it is getting booted out the door, eventually!
