"We are unable to proceed"
recommends update browser and also says
"unable to play the selected clip"-"operating system ok"-
"Internet browser does not meet minimum requirements"
"requires Macromedia Flashplayer version 8"
"needs to be installed or upgraded"

BUT!! this all has come up in the last 24 hours-everything was working fine- til I answered those questions that come up for Yahoo to become home page -

answered yes and then regretted that-- tried to go back using the Tools/Options tab -

used a tab that asked me to select a home page from favorites--

that lead to a version of Yahoo that opened really slow because it had 20 tabs!! one for each opiton from yahoo--

Tried again and typed in www.yahoo.com -- now have a better home page but the videos won't work and

I have tried to down load the specified macro-media version 8 at their site but could not find one that was named like that.

Downloaded Mozilla Firefox to see if a newer version would help -- but trying to play a clip results in the same error.. The real frustration is that it all worked 48 hours ago and I can't seem to figure out what I did that would disable the bleeping thing.

Is all this being done IE7?

Yahoo is not up on the times with the name of the flash player. go to http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer to get the latest Flash player (9.0.49 i think). This should help. Adobe bought Macromedia for 3.4 billion USD a couple years ago so it's called Adobe Flash Player...

Good luck.

Yahoo is really funny about Firefox... stupid Yahoos...
