JavaScript & Macromedia Problem in IE7

    I went to youtube using IE7 and went to watch a video there as always and I
    get this message: "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old
    version of Macromedia's Flash Player. Get the latest flash player."

    The wierd thing is that I can watch youtube just fine on Mozilla Firefox.

    Yes, Scripts are enabled under the Security Settings, etc.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks.

  2. Windows version, please?

    Try running FlashRepair: http://docxp.mvps.org/b1n/FlashRepair.exe
    From http://docxp.mvps.org/Download.htm
    If still no joy, try uninstalling Adobe Flash Player:

    Then reinstall Adobe Flash Player:

    I'm running Vista.

    The problem was fixed after I went to the following URL:
    http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/ge...censing/win/install_flash_player_active_x.exe

    By the way, if I wanted to uninstall Adobe Flash Player to do a fix sometime
    down the road how would I do it? There is no mention of any Flash or X
    players in Uninstall a Program.

  5. In order to completely remove the Flash Player you must download and run the
    Adobe Flash Player Uninstaller program, located here:
    Program name: "uninstall_flash_player.exe"
