I do play a lot of online games, and i am alway being asked to download shockwaves or directx or something like that to play the games, but what i cant understand is that why does this happen, when i have done it once eg last nite talking on msn was sent a wink, i was told to install shockwaves so i could recieve the wink, i tried to do this but it said i have installed but still couldnt receive the winks

Janet you should not have to keep downloading the flash player,have you uninstalled from add and remove programs first before reinstalling.

Good bet is to uninstall then run click here ,Reboot and reinstall.This way you will delete any obsolete registry values and have a fresh installation.
