When I try to download Shockwave player, I.E. closes the webpage and goes to a white screen saying:
"A malfunctioning or malicious add-on has caused Internet Explorer to close this webpage."
It then gives me the option of going back to Adobe, going to my homepage, or "More info". That states:
"Windows Data Execution Prevention detected an add-on trying to use system memory incorrectly. This can be caused by a malfunction or a malicious add-on."
OS is XP Pro w/SP3 w/ 1gb RAM and I.E. 8.0.6001.18702IC
Any ideas what is going wrong? Any suggestions?
Try downloading the offline installer from http://www.adobe.com/products/shockwaveplayer/shwv_distribution3.html and save it to disk, then close all browser windows and run the downloaded installer.
