    My daughter is not able to watch videos on nickjr.com, i get the following
    message. http://www.nickjr.com/nickvision/playtime/noplayer.jhtml

    My computer had the problem with ie6 and i just upgraded to ie 7 and still
    the same problem. I installed the latest flash program. I have a brand
    new pc and i live in the usa. I went to a website to check what version
    of ie it detects, and it says that it's ie 5.0 even though i just
    upgraded to ie 7. Can anyone help me solve this browser problem?
    thanks

    Hi,
    Go to http://gemal.dk/browserspy/headers.php Scroll down to the results
    table and copy/paste the HTTP_USER_AGENT information (something like this)
    Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90; MyIE2) into a
    reply to this post.

    Sorry. I lost track of this thread. IE7 is still in Beta testing. You should
    uninstall IE7. IE6 will return- you won't have to reinstall IE6.
    Uninstall information at:
    Release Notes for Internet Explorer 7 Beta:
    http://msdn.microsoft.com/ie/releasenotes/default.aspx

    Then post the user agent information that IE is sending and we'll try to
    solve the problem.

    Go to http://gemal.dk/browserspy/headers.php Scroll down to the results
    table and copy/paste the HTTP_USER_AGENT information (something like this)

    Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows 98; Win 9x 4.90; MyIE2)

    into a reply to this post.
