Shockwave error at startup
  

Hello

After starting my PC, I have a message:

[windows can not find "c:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave."].

After pressing OK the PC starts normally.

After research it seems that this message comes from adobe flash player. So I uninstall everything related to Adobe, some of ccleaner and reinstall but nothing changes.

Where could it come?

Thanks for any help.

With CCleaner and proceed as follows:
  • Uninstall Flash Player from Adobe.
  • analysis and cleaning the registry with CCleaner -> remained the key shockwave as usual
  • Backup registry (IMPORTANT)
  • Remove the key shockwave
  • Restart message and always present
  • new analysis of the registry with CCleaner -> still the key to the software needed shockwave
  • Remove this key in the registry database
  • reboot and start , and problem solved.

Have you tried disabling it from the startup group? Click start/run, type msconfig and click ok. Go to the startup tab, try disable.

I found this solution at another site

"To anyone who might be reading this and still face the problem of this thread, you could try this solution:
  • Uninstall Norton PC Check
  • Delete all files relating to this program (eg.symcheckupstub.exe in your C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave 11)
  • Go inside regedit and also manually clean the services/registries that are attached.
  • Still inside regedit, navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> Software -> Microsoft -> Windows -> Current Version -> RunOnce. Change the symPCCheckup Data to just C:\.
  • Reboot into Windows Safe Mode (Press F8 during boot time)
  • Get into the regedit and navigate to the same location in step 4.
  • Delete the symPCCheckup entry.
  • Reboot into Windows normally (automatic if you reboot your PC while in safe mode, else press F8 and start Windows normally)
  • There should now be no annoying popup window or alerts.
