For a few days now IE7 has no tbeen able to play any videos, music or load any games.
Was wondering if anyone had a cure.
Even when using standalone WMP/Realplayer/etc. it doesn't feed.

Havn't installed anythig lately that might have stopped it from working.
I can't test it on Firefox either becasue IE7 is also not allowing me to dl anything from the browser :blink:

Help Needed :whistling:

You could try reverting to IE6 by uninstalling IE7 (Add-Remove Programs). Windows will automatically return to IE6 when IE7 has been removed and you reboot. Hopefully IE6 will then at least allow you to download stuff including a copy of firefox. IE6 may also be fully functional where IE7 was not, but if that is not the case you can now try firefox instead. Despite the fact that IE7 has many improvements over IE6 (most notably tabbed browsing), I know many people who have ignored the upgrade and still prefer Firefox which has always had tabbed browsing, and they only use IE for those websites which require ActiveX such as Windows Update. IE6 is just as good as IE7 for that purpose.
