Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 7

1 Answer

I have been having trouble with getting to open a pilot program @familysearch.org. First, I needed to update to Flashplayer 10, in working with the support there they tell me I need to update my browser from IE 6 to IE 7. I had no problem using the IE 6 prior to an update they made and now only me but others are having the same problem. I am reluctant to change to IE 7 or go to Foxfire as they are suggesting. I have MS Widnows XP Media Center Edition 2005. Would you offer me any suggestions? I am able to view items from other sites and hard headed to see this is my problem. I told them it was their coding. All worked beautiful before update made. Thank you .."Teacup"

    Thank you for your help. I did confirm on another computer that IE7 would help me to see the link I wanted to use. I have since downloaded IE7, however when it came into my computer it went to my Documents. Should I move this to the programs before I install it? Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thank you for your advise, but being hard headed I have to see that it works before I am convinced. I helps to know there are smart techs who can get you on the road again. Great job and service.

You can't fight progress, especially with software. Microsoft is just about ready to roll out IE 8 which will make IE 6 even more obsolete.

Don't fight it, just roll with it. I know change sucks sometimes but if you plan on using computers you're gonna have to deal.

As far as browsers go you shouldn't be hesitant to use Firefox.

It's widely accepted as the best browser around.

visit www.getfirefox.com

and save yourself some grief. If you don't like the problem you can always just uninstall it or better yet just keep it as a backup.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask.

Best of luck!

    The location of the file doesn't matter. Most of microsoft's downloads are self-installers. Once you double-click the downloaded file it will automatically copy all the necessary files to the program files folders.

    Glad I could help. Don't get too attached to 7 now, remember 8 is coming very soon.

    Also give firefox a shot, seriously. It's the best.

    Take care.

Unable to install flash player in internet explorer 8.. after agreeing activex controls its giving a dialog box saying gp.cab publisher not verified.. i am downloading it from the adobe site itself yet it...


Make sure you don't have any prior versions of Adobe Flash Player in your system. Look in "programs and features" and make sure. If you have prior versions, uninstall them. You have to be out of all apps when downloading, IE: Internet Explorer, MSN Messenger, some Yahoo mails, anything that accesses internet. You will be asked to allow Active X and you should get warned about things you're in that won't allow download which, you can get out of by minimizing download, getting out, then returning to download. If it's easier, save the download to file, get out of everything, then open file and download. Adobe has a pretty good help section. You will also want to have Java, if you have Java, make sure it's up to date. You can check in "control panel", click on the Java icon then the update tab. If you don't have Java, you can get it here:
http://www.java.com/en/
Adobe's is here, just in case:

I want toopen to have adofe flash player but internet doesnt permit to loaded


The following guide, originally written for Firefox 2, has been used successfully on Firefox 3, Firefox 3.5 and Firefox 3.6. Users of Firefox Portable edition (versions 3, 3.5 and 3.6) also have been successful using this guide.
The Windows computers available at my University permits login only by autenticated users (students) who don't have Administrator access and permissions.
Installing software on those PC is then not possible.
Recently they finally installed Firefox 2 but without the Flash plugins, which is absolutly useful/needed.
I then tryed to install the Flash Player using the "standard" way (click on the missing plugin link then install the plugin..). However without administrator plugins it was not possible to install.
Then I started doing some tests trying to install the plugin manually. Now I have it installed and working perfectly!
This is how I managed to install it without administrator permissions:
  1. Download the XPI archive of the Flash Player Plugin to your hard disk (right click on the download link then "Save link as.."). XPI archives are only ZIP files containing the files used by the plugins. A more updated version of the plugin is also available here.
  2. So you can safely rename the file you just downloaded, called flashplayer-win.xpi, into flashplayer-win.zip (you are changing its extension from .xpi to .zip)
  3. Extract the files in the archive. You can use any program capable of opening .zip files (WinZip, WinRAR or the free and great 7-zip). There are also websites which can uncompress archives: wobzip.org.
  4. Copy the files flashplayer.xpt and NPSWF32.dll to %APPDATA%\Mozilla\Plugins\
    • %APPDATA% is not a real folder. It's an alias. By inserting it in your windows explorer address bar, you'll be redirected to the real folder which holds your applications profiles and settings. The location of this folder depends on various setting that's why we need the alias and not an absolute path.
    • You can open this folder simply choosing "Start ? Run ? Type in %APPDATA% ? OK".
    • In case you don't have a Plugins folder you can create one and place your files there.
  5. Restart Firefox
  6. Enjoy your flash websites!

I have been trying to install adobe flash player on my hp pavillion for safari yet when i try to get it to download it says i have to close safari how is it that i must install it then??


Adobe Flash Player will only install when Safari is not running. This is normal. Adobe Flash Player uses a separate installer that will install Flash independently.

Get the flash player at this web site:

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

I hope you find this information helpful.

I cannot download adobe flashplayer. Whenever I go to certain sites, I keep getting told that I need to disable Java or I have an older version of Adobe. I keep trying to download FP, but it keeps failing....


I had this problem before..you need to clean the registry files stored in your computers harddrive. The problem you are having now is that the flashplayer will not complete the download because the old flashplayer is priority even though you have upgraded your browser. I spent a few days when this happened to me. Try this free registry cleaner from CNET, click on the link and download it. After you download it, install it and run the program and it will clean all of your old files out of the harddrive. It will find and delete the old versions of Adobe. After you do that, resart the computer and redownload Adobe flash player.

I had norton installed on my computer. but now my pogo game with java wont work I uninstalled norton but it still wont let me play my games what wrong and what can i do to fix it


Hi,
First of all make sure you have another antivirus installed on the computer.

Download Norton Removal tool from here and run the program >>>>>>






http://service1.symantec.com/Support/tsgeninfo.nsf/docid/2005033108162039






Restart your computer and see if you can play any games. If you can't then you will probably need a Adobe Flash Player update.
Get Adobe Flash here >>>>>






http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/






Just install the file and try to play games.
Please let me know how you get on.

Good luck.

Chrome Adobe Error


Fresh out of Google suppot -

"Download the flash player for windows xpi file - http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/get/flashplayer/xpi/current/flashplayer-win.xpi

"Rename the file to .zip

"Explore the .zip file and you will see a couple files, flashplayer.xpt and NPSWF32.dll, which you have to copy.

"Open another explorer window and go to the plugins folder of your google chrome browser, which might be at -
C/Documents and settings//Local Settings/Application Data/Google/Chrome/Application/Plugins/

"Paste both the files in this plugins folder and then close your Chrome browser and restart it

Those instructions worked fine for me, but I had to make one small change to the advice given there - Vista uses a different folder structure, so I had to paste the two necessary files into C:\Users\{Username}\AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\Application\Plugins

The folder Plugins did not exist when I navigated my way there, so I created it and dropped the two files in, restarted the Chrome browser and ... Voila! Working fine

Other thing I’d say is that my first step was to visit the Chrome Help pages, in particular, http://www.google.com/support/chrome/bin/answer.py?answer=95697&cbid=1798iqe1e7223&src=cb&lev=answer

and installed Java 6 v 10 like they suggested, before doing the Flash business
