What is your operating system & web browser?
What exactly means "will not run" and "will not play"??
I have windows (crap) seven and internet explorer. When I try to access movies or tv shows, I'm always asked to install the latest version of Adobe Flash Player. When I check the programs list, it indicates that Adobe Flash Player Active X is installed. I have uninstalled adobe and reinstalled it several times. Do you suppose this is a virus, and I need to redo the hard drive completely?
