Hi. Lately youtube is not working on my computer and neither are some applications. Mobsters on myspace is another one that is not working.

I have tried installing Adobe Flashplayer and Shockwave. I then tried uninstalling them both, restarting and then reinstalling them both.

When I go to youtube page it tells me: Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player. When I use Mozilla Firefox (which I strongly prefer) it just tells me there is an error after the video on youtube tries to load.

I apologize, but I dont know what JavaScript is, or how to turn it on or if it really is even off.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

In Firefox go Tools > Options > Content tab and make sure Java and JavaScript are enabled.

Go Start > Control Panel and double-click Add or Remove Programs. Post back and report any Java or JS2E entries that you have.

That Java entry is out of date. You should remove it and then get the latest from here:
