    Why can't I watch Youtube videos any more? I am using a Dell Laptop with Windows 7 and IE 8. I have been looking at some old war games I used to run and think that the flash player has been affected. Any ideas?

    Hi Zep. Many thanks. All OK now thanks to your help. I used to run Firefox but reverted to IE following an upgrade. I am still undecided whether to change back and would appreciate your advice. Computers! Who needs 'em?

    I prefer firefox but I also like IE8 as well, firefox can be somewhat safer however I have never had an issue with IE8 I think it comes down to what you like an runs best for you...

    Hi Zep. My feelings exactly. There are advantages and disadvantages with both systems although Firefox does seem a bit more stable and you do not get the "not responding" message as often. Thanks anyway.
