Shockwave not playing - saying restart computer

Shockwave not playing - saying restart computer

Shockwave not playing - saying restart computer

I'm running Windows XP with Firefox browser; I need to have the latest Shockwave player (10).  Downloaded install file from macromedia.  After install, it said I needed to restart.

Shockwave player never worked.  I get only a blank screen; no errors, just nothing.

Macromedia site says you don't need to restart computer.  Search for extra installs of dirapi.dll and iml32.dll, but I don't have any.  Then it says to uninstall and install from standalone install.  I did that.

Problem is still occuring.  What do I do?

By the way, IE isn't an option.  It's totally dead.  Not just shockwave, the whole stupid browser.  

I appreciate any help!
