Java Script turned off or an old version of flash

Hi all,

I keep getting this message on you tube when i click through to watcha video? It was fine the other day but now i can't watch anything.

I've re-downlaoded flash player several times and as far as I'm aware I have java script enabled.

Any ideas?

It happens a lot.......and when it does use this version of Flash player click here

That usually fixes things.

I was just about to raise this issue when I saw this posting. I`m having the same diff. on desktop system tho all OK on Laptop. Checked IE7 settings ( compared Lap + Desk ) and all are the same. Tried different versions of Flash Player ( 2 variations of vers 9 and also Ver 8 ). Still get message on youtube as per paulcomp.

Uninstall flash player using above link and then reinstall from here, click here .
If you use Firefox or Opera browsers they will automatically ask you to download the neccessary add-on.

I have done as per above. Used Adobe supplied Flash uninstaller then d/loaded Flash 9 from Adobe site ( well attempted to ! ). What happens is the d/load starts, I select to allow Active X install. The d/load then appears to start again. At any rate from C/Panel I can see 2 instances of FP installed ( 1 Labelled Flash Player, 2nd labelled Flash Player 9 ). Looking in further details the 2nd is vers 9, the 1st is ver At any rate for some reason install NOT taking and No youtube video playing. At my wits end. Have also ( Very inadvisably ) disabled Zone Alarm and McAfee AV while attempting install. Did not help. Any advice welcome.
