Ok im not sure where this should go. Im having problems with windows and IE7 but i think it is to do with my flash player so not really sure where was best to put this.

Anyway, as of a few days ago IE7 went a bit strange. On sites such as youtube and pinkbike the videos wouldnt appear, but on pinkbike it said i needed to update my flash player. But also on pages such as google i kept getting the yellow ! and an error showing. When you go onto google your cursor usually automatically goes into the text box but it stopped doing this. Also on my webmail for my website the site usually auto detects my browser and changes the interface accordingly but it couldnt recognise it on IE and kept giving me errors whenever i logged in. Lastly MSN started to muck up, i was using the latest version and there was about a 10second lag when logging in from when i entered a letter to it appearing. And following on from that, trying to log into the Live hotmail dosent work anymore with an error coming up in the bottom corner again.

So after all that. Would these all be connected to having an out of date flash player?
Appreciate any hlep guys :)

What is the error in the bottom corner?
Is Windows all up to date?
What information do you have stored in IE (Favorites, passwords, form history, etc)? Would you be opposed to simply uninstalling and reinstalling IE?
Have you made sure that any Shockwave or Adobe addons are enabled by going to Tools > Manage Addons > Enable/Disable Addons?

I either get the above ^^ or instead of Done it says "error on page"

Im pretty sure windows is up to date. I have a lot of favourites stored but the ones i want to keep i know anyway. Also i do have a lot of passwords etc stored on different sites but im sure i could remember them if needs be. I made sure everything was enabled.

On this computer is a number of accounts. and on the other accounts the internet explorer works fine but on mine i keep getting errors etc.

If you double click on that error symbol, it will open up a new dialog box with the error information in it. There may be a few. Please post them here!

Also, go for me to Tools > Manage Addons > Enable/Disable Addons, and make sure that anything that looks like Adobe or Shockwave shows up as Enabled, not Disabled. If there's one that is disabled, click on it, then click on "Enable" near the bottom of the dialog box.

Also, please go to Add/Remove Programs, find and click on "Adobe Flash Player ActiveX", then click "Click here for support information." There will be a version number listed - please post that here as well!
