I'm using After Effects CS5. I recently started getting the following warning message whenever I launch the program:

"After Effects warning: there are multiple copies of plug-in effect "Mettle ShapeShifter" on your drive. To avoid problems, quit After Effects and move or delete the older or unneeded version(s)."

I've never installed more than one version of ShapeShifter, and it's been on my machine for quite a while, so this puzzles me. I rarely use the plug-in, so I could try uninstalling it, but I'm wondering if there's another option for eliminating this warning message and would appreciate any and all suggestions.

I'm on Windows 7. Thanks in advance.
