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

Have IE7 pretend it's IE6:

Internet Explorer 7 User Agent String

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.
