Question

Q: Javascript and Flash Player

Two days ago my Vista Ultimate machine worked fine on YouTube and other sites for viewing video.  Yesterday, when I visited the Geni.com site and later the YouTube site, I got the following message:

Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player..

I loaded the latest flash player and this made no difference.  After checking here in the forums I found a couple threads that led me to the help page for script enabling.  I followed those proceedures to no avail.

  My first question is how do I fix this.  My second question would be, what happened two days ago????

Thanks

Nick

Answer

A:

Download and run the Adobe Flash Player uninstaller:

Afterward, right-click on the Internet Explorer icon located on
your Taskbar and select: Run as administrator.  Then visit:

In addition, make sure you have the lastest version of Java installed:
