    I run Windows XP Home with two users, me and my wife. Yestrday I wanted to create some order in my Internet Explorer Favorites, so I opened the folder Favorite with Windows Explorer and created new folders and transferred links between folders. Net result none of the links to YouTube work anymore. I get the message “Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player”. I did all the recommended things like reinstall FlashPlayer, Java, Adobe, check the settings on Tools, disable Norton etc… No joy!
    However when I log out on XP and log back in as my wife and then go to that same “Favorites” folder containing the YouTube links that won’t open and click on them… Bingo they open and I can see the video’s
    What does my wife have in the eyes of FlashPlayer that I do not have?

    HeadHunter12, Many times deleting your Temporary Internet Files including all offline content will correct that problem.
