|Have tried to use IE8 and Firefox neither of them can play the videos. I just get a black screen with no messages. I have the latest version of Flash and Shock Wave. I also cannot get some of the hot buttons on certain web pages to respond. One of those is the hot button to download flash on the adobe web page. When I click it all that happens is that page is refreshed.|
When I run the PC in safe mode the videos will play and that is how I got flash downloaded. When I tried to play a youtube video I got a message to load Flash which I did using the hot button. Then I played the video. Once out of safe mode I am back where I was before. Something happened in the last few days. I was getting along fine and all of a sudden programs start non responding, the cpu and hard drive intermittently go into overdrive about every ten minutes although the PC was just sitting with nobody touching it. Then I tried to find the problem and things went even further south.
Any suggestions would be welcome.
