I went through the process of uninstalling my Aol Adapter and then relaunching it to install my Macromedia Shockwave, but it is still giving me problems. How do I uninstall the macromedia Shockwave? I want to reinstall it because I don't think it installed properly the first time because my computer locked up when it was installing.

Hi stkittsbeauty, first I want to say welcome to BC.

To get the uninstaller, click the link below and save the file to your hard drive:


Adobe Macromedia UNINSTALLER

To get the stand-alone installer, go to the alternates Shockwave page provided below.

In case you're still having problems - IIRC, you need to have Visual Basic 6 installed. I stumbled on this problem while working on a Win 98 computer. If Shockwave installed correctly, you'll see the animation in the box on the page it takes you to - if it doesn't show, it didn't work.
