Flash or other Plugin doesn't function

HEllo,

Since a couple of weeks I've got problems with IE 6. I don't know what is changed in the meanwhile but now i've got the next problem:
Some pages that use "flash" say that I don't have installed the latest Flash Plugin. This for example happens when I visit: www.planet.nl or www.bol.com.
So I've installed the Macromedia flash Plugin many times, and there it seems to work. Cause I get the message that is installed correctly and also other sites that uses flash...they all work.

So I don't think it's the flash plugin that isn't installed but that something else is wrong.

Also: On some pages when I click on an link to open a new window, then this window does open, but nothing else happens. I guess this is Java??
I don't know if this two things are the same problem?

I did try to install IE 7, but then the problem is still there. I also installed the Macromedia Flash Plugin, Shockwave plugin. I checked my Internet safety setting. It all appears to work normal. But I still have these problems.

So I hope someone can help me?

Thanks in advance.

many websites employ java technology so your problem could be related to that not being installed. In any event, you ought to install it if only to check if it cures the problem. What you need is called the 'Java Runtime Environment' which allows java-based applications to run on your PC and in your web-browser. It's here:
http://www.java.com/...load/manual.jsp

Choose either the first or second download buttons. Both install the same version, but only the second one allows you to save the setup file so you can install it at any time on to several machines without having to re-visit the site.

Thanks for your advise pip22, but it didn't help. :whistling:

I did already tried to uninstall and reinstall the java plugin. And this also appears to work correctly if I test it on the Java site.

So i'm still having the problem.

Hi Beelen...

Open Control Panel and double click on "Internet Options". Under the "Security" tab, click the "Internet" icon in the top box. What is the Security Setting set to? If it is set to Medium High, lower it to Medium, "Apply" the change, and try the pages you have trouble with.

The safety setting is set to "normal", so I suppose this shouldn't be the/a problem?

Thanks anyway.

So you're still running IE6...set your security settings as suggested on This Page.

Any help?

Indeed I'm running IE6, I tried IE7...but the problem was still there.

I've checked these settings...they are the same as mine.
So this is also no solution for the problem. :whistling:
