Ok, well, first things first. I am running Win XP pro with ie7. I also run Norton Personal Firewal and Norton Anti-Virus, etc. Now that I've done all this upgrading some java or flash players are not working and I have no idea why. Some examples are the ones used on web-pages such as my myspace page that are the music controllers. Not one of those will work. Also a few buttons won't work on another page I like to visit. YouTube prompted me to download the Macromedia Flash Player and I did... and still it doesn't work. I have tried turning off my firewall to see if it's blocking it and off or on I have the same problems. I'm pretty frusterated. I'm not sure what else to say about the problem. Please ask questions if you need to know more... otherwise... what are some of your suggestions?? Please and Thank You in advance.

Welcome to Geeks to Go,

Are you receiving a page that says ALL ADD-ONS DISABLED when you start IE?

No. I have not seen anything like that. I know some pages will prompt you if your activex is not updated and you will not see certain graphics, etc. on those pages unless you let IE update them but I have not seen those either. Come to think of it, I'm not sure I've seen anything about add-on's at all with IE 7. I'm not sure I like the new IE interface... I can't find anything as easily. I upgraded to it thinking it might help my problem. Boy was I wrong.

LoL. I feel pretty stupid. Thank you Patrick for mentioning the Add-Ons... because that clued me in to look for that 'Tool'. I'm still getting used to IE7 so it took me a while to realize that I was skipping over the clear menu chose that said Manage Add-On's. I opened that up and low-and-behold!! My flash player was disabled. I usually am not this absent-minded... or dense... You see, I grew up around computers and recently built this one to replace my old one whose motherboard fried about 2 weeks ago. I just could not get past certain problems. I blame it on cold meds and fatigue. does that work?? :whistling: Alright well, problem solved and it was so much simpler than it seemed. Again Patrick much thanks for bringing add-ons to my attention.

No problem. I recently went through it with my IE 7.

I completely agree with you. IE is garbage now. Try Firefox. Much better browser.

I've been having the same problems since swithing to to IE7 a while back and posted elswere here, (http://www.geekstogo...howtopic=152743) tried the recommendations but I'm still having problems. I am running Win XP Home--we removed IE7 and are running both IE6 and Mozilla. Same Norton Firewall/Anti-Virus as Kay. Same problems

On my Manage Add-ons, all are enabled except for Aim, Windows Messenger and Yahoo Toolbar. I went to Youtube for the test. On Mozilla I get the Quicktime Q with a ? in it and on IE6 I get "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Macromedia's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.

Suggestions?
