Hello.

I'm having some problems with Java apparently and for no apparent reason.

Suddenly, I'm unable to view videos on YouTube and any little Java apps or whatever refuse to work.

On YouTube, I get the "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player." message even though neither is true. I have the most up-to-date version of java installed and running, I've used the unistall tool for Flash Player and reinstalled the latest version, I've restarted my computer and checked in services to see if java is running and it appears to be.

The only event that seems to have coincided with this sudden problem is the blocking of an ad with Adblock Plus when I was viewing my Yahoo Mail. I've re-enabled the ad I blocked, even tried disabling Adblock on the pages where I'm having problems but all has been for naught.

Can someone please help? This is driving me nuts. :thumbsup:

Java and Javascript aren't the same thing. Forget about Java. Flash can be very confusing and Adobe doesn't help. The symptoms indicate that though you think you have the latest version of Flash, you don't. I suggest you go through the process of uninstalling and reinstalling Flash as it could have been corrupted.

But I already did that - since this problem arose. I guess I could try it again but I doubt it'll change anything.

Is Flash going to prevent something like the following from working?

"java script:IMVU.AvatarCard.showPopup(28170483)"

Okay, I used the uninstall Flash tool then rebooted. Now, when I try to reinstall Flash I get this:

"getPlus +®: Error:
Installation is corrupt! (followed by a series of numbers and letters)"

I've tried this three times now and keep getting the same result.

So now what? :thumbsup:

According to this, this error has to do with Adobe Download Manager. You have to uninstall it and then install Flash.

Did everything they said. No Adobe Download Manager in Add/Remove Programs. No getPlus files were found on search. Still, I used the uninstall tool, rebooted then attempted to reinstall Flash and got the same file corrupted message.

After that, I used the executable file recommended here: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/191/tn_19166.html

I'm still having problems with some things like IMVU though I can watch videos on YouTube now. (I was able to watch them after I disabled AdBlockPlus for YouTube. I tried this at IMVU and nothing changed.)

I did notice something I'd never seen before. In Firefox, under Tools, I have "Error Console". Curious, I opened it and found a ton of errors and warnings like:

"Expected declaration but found '*'. Skipped to next declaration."
"Unknown property 'zoom'. Declaration dropped."
"extend failed, please check that all dependencies are included."
"YAHOO.widget.Panel is not a constructor"
"IMVU.AvatarCard.observeOnlineStatus is not a function"
"IMVU.badgeTooltip is undefined"

Does this stuff mean anything?

I don't use Firefox but I suggest that you may be having problems with addons so you might want to tinker around with them. It's a very common problem.
