Users of the Microsoft Windows XP operating system receive the following message when attempting to install the free Adobe Shockwave Player:
"A file replacement was attempted on the protected system filefile_name. To maintain system stability, the file has been restored to the correct Microsoft version. If problems occur with your application, please contact the application vendor for support"
In the past the Adobe Shockwave Player included the Adobe Flash Player in its installation. Windows XP includes the Flash Player in its default installation, thus causing an alert upon installing the Shockwave Player.
