In our download, and yours may be different, the Adobe Shockwave Player came bundled with the Registry Mechanic adware.

Interface:

The interface of the Adobe Shockwave Player varies greatly according to what kind of content you're viewing. With animations for example, there's no interactive features. But with some content, like games or interactive presentations, you'll be able to make selections within the content that dictate where you go and what you see next. With an interface that varies like this, you'll have different experiences nearly every time. But one thing's for sure, a lot of work went into making sure you have enjoyable experience whenever you encounter Shockwave content through the web browser player.
