My PC was idling with only the screensaver on screen and I pressed the spacebar to continue and found a download in progress which said "Shockwave update downloading". Can anyone tell me what this is please and what program it might be related to as to the best of my knowledge I have nothing like that installed. I cancelled the download immediately. My OS ia XPhome sp2. Many thanks.

Many thanks VoG, I have done a search and find that I do have Macromedia Shockwave Player V9. As I cancelled the download should I go ahead and download the latest version which is 10.

Yes - I would update.

Many thanks VoG, I will do that.
