Personally, I haven't used Shockwave Player for years and it has never been installed on either of my 2008 devices.  If it is installed on your PC, it is time to consider uninstalling it as it is reaching EoL as of April 9, 2019.

From End of Life (EOL) for Adobe Shockwave:

Quote

Effective April 9, 2019, Adobe Shockwave will be discontinued and the Shockwave player for Windows will no longer be available for download.

Companies with existing Enterprise licenses for Adobe Shockwave continue to receive support until the end of their current contracts.

Adobe Shockwave is a browser-based multimedia platform for interactive applications and video games. Retiring the Shockwave player for Windows is the last step in a multi-year process: Adobe Director, an authoring tool for Shockwave content, was discontinued on February 1, 2017 and the Shockwave player for macOS was discontinued on March 1, 2017.

Adobe continues to offer a rich set of content creation tools through Creative Cloud, including Adobe Animate for authoring interactive content for multiple platforms, such HTML5 Canvas, WebGL, Flash/Adobe AIR, and others.

i forgot it existed!
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. ~C. S. Lewis

Please note:  If you saw information about security updates for Adobe Shockwave Player released today (09April2019), those updates apply only companies with existing Enterprise licenses for Adobe Shockwave.  They will continue to receive support until the end of their current contracts. However, consumers with Shockwave Player still installed are advised to uninstall it as there will be no further security updates.
