 Here is my problem fellas, perhaps you can help? Trying to watch videos on YouTube. It keeps saying to update my definitions (Adobe Flash Player). I did so but still cant view.

A little insight..... I was watching some other "special videos" (cough, cough), thats when I got the problem.

I deleted all temp. files, did a scan of everything, attempted a system restore (it would not let me), started the computer in SAFE MODE, then attempted a system restore (still would not let me), temporarily turned off ant-virus to try and download AFP, that didn't work, I checked whats in my start up menue, etc.


It does say I am "up to date" but I still cant view.

Kind of stuck here. Any ideas?
