Hi Guys & Gals,

Recently I have been unable to watch YouTube videos because YouTube says I either haven’t got Java enabled or I need the latest version Adobe flash player. Both of which I have.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled both programs but YouTube still doesn’t like me.

I am using XP Home with SP2 with AVG Pro and Commodo Firewall going through a netgear wired router.

Any Ideas what might be amiss?

It's IE 6.

Perhaps I'l give Firefox a go then. Couldn't hurt.

You have to uninstall the old version of Flash with their uninstaller. Get it at this link.
