For a look at how I ended up here refer to this topic-

http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic481022.html

to see what I've been up to the last 3 days. As described in the last few posts over there I cannot install Adobe Shockwave under any circumstances. In addition the info posted I have just completed trying to install older versions going back to the version 10 series with no result. I don't have a clue what to try next.

I found the problem. In IE9 Manage Add-Ons Shockwave Flash was enabled but Shockwave ActiveX Controls was disabled. Enabled it and it ran fine. If anyone has a similar problem just use Chrome to test Shockwave and if it works it is probably a setting in IE. That's how I found it.

ActiveX Filtering should be shut off.
It affects JAVA as well as Flash & Shockwave.

Ok, well be that as it may, I got it to work by using the "Manage Add-Ons" menu as I described. Either way, it works now, so...as far as I'm concerned this topic can be closed out. Thanks for the help.
