Would anyone know why, all of a sudden, I am getting a Shockwave pop-up (at top of page) when I go to Time Warner or Amazon? I am using WinXP. I don't know why either website would want to run Shockwave.
(I have Shockwave 11.6 installed on this computer.)
Can anyone help?

"This website wants to run the following add-on: Adobe Shockwave Player 11.6 from Adobe System Inc. If you trust this website and the add-on and want to allow it to run, click here"

Shockwave, like Flash, is used to enhance web content. It can be needed to show some ads or to play videos. It is harmless and adding it will insure that you can access all the content that the page has to offer.

To insure that your computer has the necessary add-ons to access and view multimedia and animation content in all websites, it should have the following installed:

Adobe Flash Player ActiveX 11.1.102.55 (for Internet Explorer)

Adobe Flash Player Plugin 11 (for Firefox and other non-IE browsers)

Adobe Shockwave Player 11.6.6.633

Java Runtime Environment 1.6.0.30

Microsoft Silverlight 5.0.61118.0

Note: The links that I provided are for Windows(32-bit). If you have Windows(64-bit), make sure to select the Flash Player and Java links for that version.
