    First let me tell you up front I am a techno idiot so dumb it down for me, please?
    I've played one on line game for years. Over night it loaded with sound but no video. I tried Face Book games. Same thing. I cleaned my cache, ran Malware Bytes, rebooted, downloaded about 60 Windows updates (not critical ones, these were optionals) and tried everything short of standing on my head. Off and on for about a week I tried the game again. ONE TIME it opened and worked. Nothing before or since. I hunted down an different source for the game. Still won't work. Now the problem has spread to simple videos on FB. All games installed on my computer work just fine so it has to be on line games where the problem is but the game site isn't the problem since it happens on multiple sites. That makes me think it is my computer but everything else is working as usual. Help!
