How do I associate an SWF extension to 'Shockwave Flash Object'?

Can't get my screensaver to work.

I've installed a screen saver with an SWF extension and it doesn't work (black screen). I am running XP with SP2. I've installed it on another, almost identical, computer and it works fine. I checked under 'folder options' and in 'file types' on the computer which works, it says (beside SWF extension) Shockwave Flash Object.
The computer it doesn't work on says SWF type beside SWF extension. I can type Shockwave Flash Object in there but that doesn't do anything. I do have Shockwave 11 installed.
Can anyone tell me how to associate SWF extensions with shockwave?
