Did you download the Google Chrome browser or install a toolbar by any chance?

You can also try this:
1. Open IE by clicking on its icon on Desktop.
2. Click on Tools > Internet Options
3. Under 'General' tab, click the 'use blank' button under the "home page" entry.
4. Click on "Programs" tab and click on 'make default' button under "Default Web Browser" entry.
5. Click 'Apply' and 'OK' buttons

Close IE and reopen to see if this solves the issue. Please post back if this is not what you meant in your original query..

Sounds like you need to update internet explorer. Do you have automatic updates on? You can have two internet explorer windows open at the same time. If you have IE5, minimize the window and open another one the same way you opened the first one. You can download anything as long as your hard drive is big enough. Most are at least 60 gig now days and if your pc was purchased new within the last 5 years, its probally 160 gig or bigger. When you click a link to download something it will usally ask you if you want to save it or run it. Click save and then it will ask you where to save it to. Click the work "Desktop" on the left, then click SAVE. To save a site to favorites, click the star or the word favorites on the Internet Explorer window. Then click add to favorites. Make sure you are on the page you want to add to favorites first.

Are you getting error message that reads " Either you dont have latest Java version or flash to run the videos.

As the problem with the IE 7.0 and IE 8.0 is related to cookies comes from the videos websites.

I would recommend you to rollback the IE to IE 6.0.

For further guidance on rollback, please visit this link:
