    So I recently removed some unknown vital file and had to use HP's recovery disk. After that, Opera commits a crime every time I hit flash or streaming realvideo (the lowercase is no typo :mad:). IE also won't recognize them, although (I think) it didn't crash. I tried to reinstall Opera (with Java) and Flash (twice!), and reduced hardware acceleration to 1/4. No use. I'll try to to take acceleration further, albeit unwillingly, but if that doesn't work, what can you recommend? Should I tinker with read-ahead optimization?

    There's something you need to know about the HP Recovery disk. Even if you choose the non format, and it looks like your programs are still installed, they are not. You need to reinstall all your programs for them to be installed and function correctly. If after you have reinstalled all the programs you had added and you still have problems, post back.
