If anyone has Aol could you check out you tube site as it wont play, it says you either have Javascript disabled or you need to update your flash player which I did:rolleyes: however I cannot play music from this site at all unless I go to IE or Firefox, any ideas? and please don't state the obvious... I know most people don't like Aol so I don't need that advice ;) :D

I initially use Aol browser as Aol obviously opens into the browser and I like the homepage for the news etc and also Aol help and information I may need. :)

Did you uninstall Flash first before updating? If not go here and download the uninstaller and then reinstall flash.

Hmm... really strange. Try youtube with IE.
well that explains something at least as it doesn't play through IE7 and Aol settings incorporate IE so it's not an Aol problem but IE:confused:

If you can try FF we will be able to know if it is a problem with software not being available or with the settings in IE

it works fine in FF :) I ran the test Blackmirror kindly gave me and it says Aol modifies IE and causes all sorts of problems especially with the latest version and as I've recently downloaded IE7 I thought it may help to go back to IE6 and see if the problem is still there
