I believe it was to do with the changes in settingsmade when Spyware was recently removed courtesy of this site, thanks again!

Ever since, I have had problems with viewing websites and videos on Youtube for example. I have downloaded and upgraded with all the lastest additions, and it has been tested, it is on my system.

However on most sites it keeps saying I need to download and install Flash to view what is there. I assume it is one of the settings, howver I do not want to make a serious mistake and leave myself open to spyware, do you have any suggestions?

Kind regards,
THFC

Thanks for the reply, however, I was aware of the Java Script prior and it is enabled, I am baffled by this!

I was having the same problem, this version did solve it. Thanks,

Too bad Microsoft doesn't make it easier to let them know when there is a problem and a solution.

Thanks for your response Keith, I downloaded the latest version from your link and rebooted but the problem is still there, this is so frustrating! anyway, when I go onto youtube I get the following, and get similar messages on almost any site which has Java etc:

Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Macromedia's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player.


I have all the latest software I believe and have the boxes check I think, well the ones that should enable it all!

Thanks in advance,
THFC

What web browser are you using? Have you tried using a different browser?

(like if you normally use IE7, have you tried Firefox?)
