Hello,

A few months ago I've been having issues with attempting to install Flash Player and QuickTime. I'm currently using Firefox 7.0 and Internet Explorer 8 as a backup browser. In Firefox, the installation works, but whenever I restart the computer, it requires another installation. Whenever I attempt an IE installation, I get the "failed to register" message, citing problems with the ActiveX control. Prior to all this, I hadn't any problems with either browser's handling the Flash Player. I've tried several corrective methods online, but nothing seems to fix the problem.
I've also had issues with QuickTime installs; install attempts have been met with the "Error 46: Could not load or find the QuickTime ActiveX control" message.

The ActiveX control seems to be the culprit in both cases and I'm beginning to suspect it might be a registry problem, but I'm not sure. I'm a bit at wit's end with this and would appreciate any help correcting it. I've listed my computer's specs in my profile in case you need any of that info.

Thanks,

Lefky

Yeah, I usually run a system scan whenever I'm at the computer, sometimes a few times a day just to be secure. I currently have Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2011 and so far it hasn't detected any threats. Should I repost my original question above on the malware removal section?

The only plug-in that I have enabled right now is the Yahoo! Toolbar. Should I disable that?
