Difficulty with shockwave

I am having difficulty loading any web pages that require shockwave. When the page opens, a pop-up comes out saying that "The page attempted to load an Internet plug-in named “Shockwave for Director”, but the plug-in failed to load successfully."
I have tried resetting Safari, deleting cookies, reinstalling the shockwave software both in slim and full versions, I have tried repairing the disk permissions, and I have tried deleting the cookies. Nothing has worked. Any suggestions?
