Morning i have just reinstalled  windows 7 on my computer (dont ask its' a long story) i now find website i go on,  asking me to install one of these.

you tube for instance, but i am not sure what they are for. i have googled them but the answers i get are way above my head.

so i am hoping you can tell me in words i will understand. and tell me please why i do or do not need them.    . another thing is when i am typing

If a website asks you to install software (e.g. JAVA) then don't let the website install that software. Go to the website of the maker of that software (For JAVA go to http://java.com) and manually download & install the software. That's the best way to do it.

Note: Java and Javascript are two different things. Many users think they are related and they aren't.

 

 

 

If you are getting a Javascript error on Youtube, you should go to the Adobe website and download the latest version of Flash. Are you using the latest version of IE. That would be IE11. If you are using something older, perhaps updating IE would solve your problem.
