I have installed and uninstalled flash player 9 several times. I have turned the pop up blocker on and off many times. I've deleted my temporary files, cookies, reset my security levels, reinstalled java, ran REGCUR (and corrected problems), Registry Mechanic, Ewido SpyWare, XoftSPYSe, Spybot, Ad-Aware Personal and anything else I could find.
