Check your firewall and antivirus settings make sure woozworl getting allowed.
If your computer is connected to a network or the Internet, it is advisable to use computer security tools, such as a firewall, to protect your computer from unauthorized access or viruses.
Windows operating systems come with a built-in firewall, malware protection and Internet security.
These settings are automatically configured to the factory's default settings when you purchase the operating system.
To alter the settings for these security features, access the Windows Security utility through your system's Control Panel.

Open the "Windows Security" utility by opening your "Start" menu and selecting the "Control Panel" option on the right-hand side.
Windows XP users can click on the "Security Center" link in this window.
For Vista users, click on the "Security" option, and then click on "Windows Security Center."
Click on the "Windows Firewall" option to change the settings for your firewall, if you are using XP.
You can turn the firewall on or off, and also configure which programs are allowed through the firewall.
Vista users should click on the "Windows Firewall" link in the left window pane and click on the "Change settings" link. In this window, you can block programs from passing through your firewall and grant access to new programs.
Click the "Internet Options" selection to configure your Internet security settings.
You can raise or lower the security level for different zones using preset configurations, or you can create a custom security level.
You can also reset the Internet security level to its default settings.
Click on "Automatic Updating" in the Windows Security Center to configure your system's update settings.
In Vista operating systems, click on "Windows Update" and "Change Settings."
You can configure your update settings to automatically check for updates daily or weekly.
You can also set a convenient time for your system to update to prevent interruption.
Automatic updating can be turned off by selecting the corresponding option toward the bottom of the window.
Select the "Malware Protection" option to edit malware settings if you are using Vista.
This option is not available in XP's version of Windows Security Center.
You can turn the malware protection programs on or off using the arrow to the right of the "Malware Protection" bar.
Click the "X" button to exit Windows Security Settings.

Software compatibility issues with Windows Vista


ISSUE- Software compatibility issues with Windows Vista
SYMPTOMS-
Fortunately, many applications still work fine under Windows Vista. However, there are some applications which are incompatible with Windows Vista because they are not able to handle the changes in Windows Vista compared to Windows XP. User Account Control is one of those changes to offer a better secured operating system. Sometimes, this problem is solved by (temporarily) disabling User Account Control (which can be done at the item User Accounts in the Control Panel). But for security reasons, deactivating UAC is not advised!
RESOLUTION/ WORKAROUND-
Run as administrator:
Does an application not function properly or does it show an error message every time it is used, try to run it with additional administrator rights! Because most compatibility issues are solved by running an application with additional administrator rights. By default, an application is not started with those additional rights, but this can be done manually by right clicking (the shortcut to) the application and to choose for Run as administrator. Those administrator rights can also be added by default by right clicking the shortcut to the application and to select Properties, tab Shortcut, button Advanced and to activate the option Run as administrator.
Limited permissions:
The issues concerning the limited permissions is related to the problem with the administrator rights. Without the permission to modify files in a certain location, an application is not able to save a file in this folder (as example, it is not possible to change or add files in the C:\Program Files without the permissions to do it). In most cases this problem can be solved by running an application with additional administrator rights. A better alternative is adding permissions to modify the concerning folder. This is done by right clicking the folder and to chose for Properties, tab Security, button Edit (or the button Advanced) and to activate the option Full control for the concerning user account.
Virtual Store: virtualization of files
In Windows Vista, many folders are secured, which makes it impossible for an application to make changes to the files in the folders. For example, the folder C:\Program Files is secured: only an application with additional administrator rights is able to modify the files! However, many older applications continuously try to store files in this folder, which should not be placed there. To solve this issue, Windows Vista uses virtualization of files (which are stored in the Virtual Store). The application is not aware of this virtualization, and thinks the files are stored on the prescribed location. Virtualization is done separately for every user account, the files are stored in C:\Users\loginname\AppData\Local\VirtualStore. Program Files is one of the folders in the Virtual Store, which contains the user specific settings for the applications. All users must change the settings of the virtualized applications separately. This is an advantage as well because the changes won't effect the other users.
DISABLING THE VIRTUALIZATION
Because of the virtualization, files are stored on multiple locations (every user account has it's own virtualization folder), which makes it hard to handle them (the incoming folder of the file sharing software eMule is a good example). If the virtualization is unwanted because the files (and settings) have to be applied to all user accounts? This can be realized by giving all user accounts permissions to fully control all the files in the folder which else will be virtualized. Right click the folder and chose for Properties, tab Security, select Users and set the permissions to Full Control. If this procedure is to much work, the application can be run as administrator as well. This is done automatically by right clicking the shortcut and to chose for Properties, tab Shortcut, button Advanced.
Compatibility issues with older software:
Windows Vista manages some things differently compared to previous Windows editions, which can result in compatibility issues for older software. Some of the compatibility issues are solved by running a program in the Windows XP compatibility mode. This is done with the tab Compatibility of the program shortcut Properties (available by right clicking the shortcut). The compatibility mode pretends the program it is running in an earlier Windows edition. Unfortunately, it is not always a solution to compatibility problems.

TIP: If an older program is still not functioning as it should be, a virtual environment of a previous Windows edition can be a definitive solution to the problem. Here fore, Microsoft's has created the tool Virtual PC (download: www.microsoft.com/windows/virtualpc). This software virtualizes a whole new computer on which a previous Windows version can be installed.
Which applications are compatible?
Although there are compatibility issues, there are many programs which work properly (with or without additional permissions) within Windows Vista. Microsoft investigated many programs and made a list of Windows Vista-compatible software which is devided in two categories: the software is certified for Vista or the software works with Vista. When the software is tested by Microsoft and placed in one of those categories, the vendor is allowed to label the software with the logo Certified for Windows Vista or Works with Windows Vista. The page www.iexbeta.com gives a useful summation of (almost) Windows Vista compatible software. The combination of these sources must be sufficient to tell whether a program will work properly within Windows Vista.

If your Windows XP or Vista is getting slow, a wise thing to do is to defragment your hard drives!defragment

Flash 9 freezes after 1st. video plays on The Fan.


Lets Start from here:

Before you install Shockwave Player for any Windows browser, uninstall all previous versions.
In order to remove the Shockwave player, simply use the file UNWISE.EXE located in C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave 11. Windows users can also use the Add/Remove programs located in the Windows control panel. This will remove the Shockwave 10 player
For the Shockwave 8 and 8.5 there is an uninstaller available from the Web Players page.
Note: All applications must be closed before you run the Shockwave Player uninstaller. Quit all running applications, including all Internet Explorer or other browser windows, and all Instant Messenger clients. Check the Windows system tray carefully to make certain no applications which might possibly use Shockwave Player are still in memory.
After you have removed previous versions, you are ready to download and/or install Shockwave Player.

Before installing Shockwave Player, please check the following browser settings:
Internet Explorer ActiveX settings

Browser security settings should be chosen by you or by your system administrator. For single users who do not have an administrator, the Medium: Default Level allows you to view Shockwave content. For any Custom Level, ensure that both the "Download Signed ActiveX controls" and "Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins" options are set to "Prompt".

To change security level in Internet Explorer:

1. Open Internet Explorer.
2. Choose Tools > Internet Options.
3. Select the Security tab.
4. Select Custom Level.
5. Find the section "ActiveX controls and plug-ins".
6. Set ' Download Signed ActiveX Controls' to Prompt.
7. Set 'Run ActiveX Controls And Plug-ins' to Prompt.

If you are having trouble installing, make sure that your Internet Explorer security level is not set to High or to a custom level that does not allow viewing of ActiveX controls.
Computer user permissions

User permissions determine whether or not you are allowed to install ActiveX controls or plug-ins. If you don't have Administrator access to Windows XP SP2, or Vista you may not be able to install Shockwave Player successfully. Administrative privileges are required for the Windows system registry and for the C:\WINDOWS\system32\Adobe\Shockwave folder.
If the ActiveX Control for Shockwave Player fails to install, download the executable installer.

If the information above has not resolved the issue, download the executable Shockwave Player installer here:

* Download and latest Shockwave Player Installer.

Save this installer to your desktop, close out all applications, and run the installer. This may help if you are having trouble with the ActiveX installation from Adobe.com. To confirm that Shockwave Player has installed successfully, please click here. The two movies will show if you have Flash and Shockwave Players installed. The version numbers of the both Players will be displayed in the test movie.

Downloading Programs with the new Windows Vista


You need a special version for Vista if it's not what you tried to install already. It can be found here:

http://messenger.yahoo.com/windowsvista.php

Vista also pops up annoying prompts to confirm every system change, which may cause problems. This is caused by User Access Control, and I can walk you through temporarily disabling it if you can't get the above version installed straight away.
