    When going on Myspace, the page loads, but there is no background and no sound or pictures being displayed, only the small box with the Red Cross on each one where the pictures should be. The bottom left indicates 'done' but with the small yellow ! Icon saying error on the page. I’m assuming it’s a problem on my end and not the site.
    With youtube it seems that maybe one in ten of the videos I select to view actually load. The rest seem to remain black with the 'loading...' text showing. I wait but nothing happens.

    Both these sites seemed to be working fine a few days ago. Is there anything I can do or check to see what’s happened? I have windows 98'
    Thanks for your help. Not too clued up on this kinda stuff so any help you can offer would be most appreciated.

    ok, first of all are you using firefox or internet explorer, and what media player are you using to play the videos on youtube?

    also, have you downloaded anything in the past few days...you said it worked fine a bit ago

    Im using Internet Explorer. I just watch the videos on youtube how they appear..I think its Macromedia or something but I downloaded the latest one just to be sure, but still no joy.
    I recently had Mcafree internet suite 8 but It slowed my PC down a great deal so I uninstalled, took it back and got a refund. Apart from that I have installed Disckeeper (defrag tool), Spyware Doctor (although I didnt realise you had to pay so I uninstalled) AVG antivirus free edition and the latest JAVA.. I thought that would help but it didnt.
    Can you see these ok out of curiousity?

    No joy on my part. It wouldnt have anything to do with this Lexplore thing that keeps appearing in my ctrl alt delete menu would it?
    thanks for your reply
