I couldn't find a post that involved my same exact problem, so here it is. I just bought a new Dell Laptop (inspiron b130) and I cannot get the macromedia flash player to work when I try to view videos on websites. For instance, I can't view anything from 'MTV Overdrive' or 'VH1 VSpot'. The MTV Overdrive will say 'Network Failure. Proceeding to next video' when it is going through the videos available. I also can't view video clips on www.cmt.com (windows media player) either, but for some reason I can view video on www.break.com. I have tried everything to fix it, but nothing works. I know it has something to do with the settings on my laptop b/c the websites work perfectly fine on my desktop that is on the same network. The only difference between the two is my antivirus software (Desktop-Symantec, Laptop-Trend Micro PC). I am confident I have checked all the internet options settings and matched them to my desktop. I have plugged my laptop into my router directly (instead of wireless) and it didn't work. I removed a compatibility flag file from my registry, which was suggested by Macromedia support. I have disabled my firewall on my laptop. I have disabled Trend Mirco PC. I have uninstalled/re-installed Macromedia Flash player 8. NOTHING fixes it! Has anybody encountered this problem and resolved it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
