Ok, I just now got this error:
Error: Error #2067: The ExternalInterface is not available in this container.
ExternalInterface requires Internet Explorer ActiveX, Firefox, Mozilla 1.7.5 and greater, or other browsers that support NPRuntime.
Why do I get this error? The browser versions we have is greater than the versions it lists.
Also, some other stuff I'm reading is making me wonder if it's what is causing the problems-
Computer user permissions
User permissions determine whether or not you are allowed to install ActiveX controls or plug-ins. If you don't have Administrator access to Windows NT, 2000, XP, or Vista you may not be able to install Flash Player successfully. Administrative privileges are required for the Windows system registry and for the C:\WINDOWS\system32\Macromed\Flash folder."
I'm wondering if the repairman who worked on my computer right before this past Christmas has caused something to happen. See, we had to call someone due to something that caused me to all of a sudden get locked out of my computer. It was coming up with a message that said
"This computer is in use and has been locked. Only AMY\AmyR(Amy) or an administrator can unlock this computer."
Then it had 2 boxes, one to enter in a username and the other for the password and then 2 buttons Ok and cancel.
The repairman brings the computer back. But then after he leaves, the locked out message comes up again. But it changed a bit. It had the word help entered in the username box and it also had (help) instead of (Amy) and then I didn't have to enter in any passwords.
I finally got a little help I guess on getting that locked message to stop coming up. I got it to stop by some setting I never even knew about they said to right click on Desktop and then Properties, then I go to Screen Saver tab and there was a checkmark next to On resume, password protect. That seemed to have stopped the locked message from coming up. But I have no idea how that thing got marked in the first place. Any ideas as to what would have caused this?
Also, another thing I have noticed after doing some exploring around is if I right click on the my computer icon and then go to properties and to Advanced tab and in the user profiles section and settings, it has 5 columns- Name, Size, Type, Status and Modified. Here is what was listed for everything.
Name Size Type Status Modified
1. Account Unknown 35.4 MB Local Local 5/22/2009
2. DeLL\Administrator 35.4 MB Local Local 5/22/2009
3. DELL\AmyR 1.06 GB Local Local 8/14/2009
I guess I'm wondering if the repairman did some kind of settings. Problem is we don't know what all he did. My mom said she was tempted to call him back since that locked message did come up again since we thought he had fixed it. Everything was just so hectic at the time too since it was right before Christmas and all that this was happening.
Also, another question.
I notice you say about things to disable. We don't have any of those toolbars mentioned- Google, yahoo, etc..
Only thing we noticed you talk about disabling AVG. If we disable AVG then I wont have any virus/spyware/adware protection.
