hey guys, this is my first time using this site
a buddy of mine downloaded shockwave on my computer quite a while back. i have just been dealing with it and thought i would forever have to. i just heard about this site and would appreciate any help you can give me. here is what it says:
Illegal operation in Plug-In
The pulg in performed an illegal operation. You are strongly advised to restart Firefox

i have done a search of my computer and cant find it anywhere, so i dont know how to delete/uninstall it. ???
thanks

The easiest way to uninstall Shockwave is probably to go to Control Panel>>Add/Remove Programs (in the Start Menu). It'll show up on the list as "Adobe Shockwave Player" if it's on there. Just hit the "Change/Remove" button and uninstall it. The problem you're having is likely because Adobe doesn't claim to support Firefox with it's newest version of Shockwave.
