shockwave install instructions don't work

I followed the instructions here, which state

#1 Download the free Shockwave Player from the Macromedia website

#2 Run the installation routine and, instead of letting it install to a local browser, select to choose your browser

Trouble is, when I installed shockwave, it never offers this option. The only input it allows the user is whether to install google toolbar. After it's finished installing, my IE pops up automatically, I have no control over it. I never get the option to install to, or use, FFportable at any time.

Any idea how to get the instructions to work?

Leave FFP open

I have had success with opening FFP and running the installer while it is open. I have also had to run it several times in some instances.

Do you do the right thing even when no one will know you did?
