Question about Computers & Internet
I've tried to download the flash player about 12 times--I get two icons on the desktop but nothing more. When I click on the icons, a bunch of gibberish appears in notepad. It isn't just youtube---any videos that have the ''Q'' willl not play on my machine, never have. The ''Q'' has a question mark inside it. As I say, I've tried to download the flash player but with no luck. The videos marked wmv play fine. I am using the latest version of the wmv player. The computer is an IBM Thinkpad A20.
Why dont you try deleting Internt Explorer, and when you delete Internet explorer, delete the flash players also. Restart the machine and reinstall IE.
after IE is installed, reinstall the flash players from adobe.
If it STILL dont work, then just reinstall the OS?
Hope that helped
