Can't watch youtube!

Yikes! How am I to stay informed and entertained?

Win2K, SP4, all security updates from windowsupdate as of last night.
This is a relatively new build which I just started using for work (no
idea if it ever worked with Youtube... never been tried before).

When I go to youtube, I get a message where the video should be that
says "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version
of Macromedia's Flash Player. Get the latest flash player."

My Flash player is the latest and verifies that at Macromedia on the
install screen. I do allow JS. I even took security down to the lowest
levels in MSIE and it still didn't work.

Ideas ?

Thanks,

If you believe it to be an operating system issue the steps in this article

Dave:

I don't think this is an "almost reinstall windows" sort of problem
as you've suggested as a solution. This is an almost new build, SP4
applied, all security patches at MS through yesterday applied. I have
a feeling it's a more contained problem... some sort of MSIE /
security patch mangle perhaps. I am hoping for a more contained
solution than the reinstall.

Try downloading and using Sun's Java.

Somehow you must have some java issue only. Check the various Java security
settings in IE.

I found the problem... or the solution anyway. Adobe has a flash
un-install program you can run. I un-installed and then re-installed
and it works now.

Can you view full screen? I had found the fix that you have but when I go to full screen it locks up everytime.

Are you pointing at something specific out there? The material related
to the error message I am getting suggests enabling active scripting.
But, I've already enable JS (it works fine at other sites) and I am
already running at low security - see my previous post.

Thanks,
