Okay, so whenever i try to load the video player from the website TMZ.com, i get nothing but a blank black page. I have tried to open the same video player from all three other computers in the house and it works fine with them. This happens on my laptop with both IE7 and Mozilla Firefox so I know its not the web browers. i have reinstalled both just to make sure. I have shut off all firewall settings changed my internet options numerous times....restored default settings, etc. and still BLANK and BLACK. I have whitelisted the entire site as well. Now the TMZ.com website is hosted by AOL.com and when I look at the page source for the video player i see the whole Atwola adwrapper thingy and i think that may have something to do with it, but I don't know what to do and how to fix this. Its not so much my need to view stuff from this website, its the fact that I am unable to and want to know WHY? I am able to view videos from the AOL website as well as from all other media players online.

I have Windows XP...i use Webroot and EZ Trust AV/Firewall applications.

Here is the page source code:
