    Since I updated to the new Windows Vista Prem, I also have the latest version
    of Macroflash player installed and javascript on "enable", but I can't view
    videos (ie YouTube). Does anyone know how to correct this?

    Thanks to anyone who can help!

    I went through similar pain. I hope what follows helps:

    To Get Flash Player Working:

    Install Flash Player when prompted (don't worry that it won't yet work

    Vista (32bit) go to C:\Windows\System32\Macromed folder

    Vista(64bit) go to C:\Windows\SysWOW64\Macromed folder

    Open the folder and right click on ‘FlashUtil9b.exe’, then left click ‘Run
    as Administrator.’ The Flash Player installer should now start and once it
    completes, Flash Player should work and appear on the uninstall or change
    program list.

    This issue is related to how Windows Vista's security features prevent
    applications from changing registry settings (even if you are logged in as an
    administrator) you must explicitly allow programs to make certain changes to
    the registry.
