Just from a history point of view. It was unstable at first when 98 rolled out and after a few years they fixed it up so it worked for more people.

http://reviews.cnet.com/5208-6138-0.html?forumID=31&threadID=19329&start=0 shows the same irritations with Shockwave. But with that one I've found (with the help of people here and personal experience) many things that cause that to not install.
Has anyone encountered problems downloading the free version of Quicktime, causing the system to crash, or reboot? Is this rather bloated program a source of undesirable issues?
Any comments appreciated.
