While trying to view or d/l video, I now get a message telling me
that I don't have javascript enabled or my cookies aren't set
properly. Also says I need to d/l latest Adobe flash player.

I've d/l the flash player but am not sure if it really downloaded.

How can I check these things to be sure javascript is set properly
and cookies are correct. And how can I be sure Adobe flash is
up to date?
btw, I use IE7 Windows XP home

Thanks in advance,

IJ

You need to uninstall the old version of Flash before installing the new version. You can get the uninstaller at this link.

Hi there!

Also for videos online, right click flash videos and click settings. Here you can uncheck the box next to "Enable Hardware Acceleration." What hardware acceleration does is use your video card to its maximum. This is simply not needed for flash videos, because it can slow down your computer by allowing a higher priority process take effect.
