WinXP: forced installation of Macromedia Flash Paper on right-click

Hi X-perts,

I am getting a very annoying problem after upgrading to Adobe Flash.

The Problem: right clicking on any MS Office file in explorer triggers a installation of Macromedia Flash Paper 2 (not even a prompt screen, but actual run-time installation). I have been using Flash paper for a long time and it itself works fine.

I already disabled Flash Paper add-ins for MS Office applications (because had the same default installation upon opening MS Office), but cannot get rid of this crazy right-clicking problem

Note that it happens ONLY when clicking on Office files (excel, word etc)

How can I fix this?

Thanks

Thank you. I have tried, but it doesn't work. The problem is not a corrupted installation but some addins forcing Flash paper installation when clicking on office files
