Hi, I first of all wanna thank you guys with helping me with all my spyware problems and was wondering if you could help me with one more thing. Whenever i try to open up a music video from a website or streming music my windows media player encounters an unknown error. But music and videos on web pages dont work either so i dont think its the players fault. MTV dot.com tells me i need macromedia player plug in, so i install it but that doesnt help. Please help.

First off you should download Spyware Blaster, install it, and update it. Have it running in the background. What it will do is protect you from certain ActiveX that can cause browser hijackings. Plus it will protect you from several kinds of malware. This program is invaluable. Next go here for resources and info: http://www.popie.com/security.asp
Finally you should run use Firefox as you browser and ditch IE. I only use IE for windows update. But make sure you do your homework as far as ActiveX goes. It's good to know the good and bad sides to it.

When you click to install them it goes blank? Thats strange. I'm guessing you'll have to reset your security settings for IE. After that go to a site and try to install a plug in and see (but to be on the safe side I would have to strongly recommened you have Spyware Blaster running). As for your settings follow this step by step: Open Internet Options from the Windows control panel and click the "Security" tab. Highlight the "Internet" icon and then click "Custom Level". Choose "Medium" from the drop-down box at the bottom, then click the "Reset" button. Click "ok", then click "Custom Level" again. Set your options just as I have listed below: .NET Framework-reliant components * Run components not signed with Authenticode (Disable) * Run components signed with Authenticode (Prompt) ActiveX controls and plug-ins * Download signed ActiveX controls (Prompt) * Download unsigned ActiveX controls (Disable) * Initialize and script ActiveX controls not marked as safe (Disable) * Run ActiveX controls and plug-ins (Enabled) (This actually refers to Java and Flash, not ActiveX) * Script ActiveX controls marked safe for scripting (Prompt) Miscellaneous * Access data sources across domains (Disable) * Drag and drop or copy and paste files (Prompt) * Installation of desktop items (Prompt) * Launching programs and files in an IFRAME (Prompt) * Navigate sub-frames across different domains (Prompt) * Software channel permissions (High safety) * Userdata persistance (Disable) Scripting * Allow paste operations via script (Prompt) * Scripting of Java applets (Prompt) Be aware that MSIE has many security flaws that will allow a clever site designer to bypass security settings, even if their site is in the restricted zone. More must still be done. Now you need to install SpywareBlaster. ActiveX programs need to use a CLSID (identifier number) before Windows will execute them. SpywareBlaster stops certain ActiveX CLSIDs from working by setting a "kill bit" in the Windows registry. This will stop ActiveX drive-by installations from programs that use those numbers, as well as preventing software already installed from running if they use that CLSID.

olrighty i did all that and i was finally able to successfully able to download macromedia flash player 7 from a link on MTV.com. But i still cant see any flash on some websites including MTV.com! im thinking a program or something i have is disabling active x content from running on my windows. Because my internet setting are all go (enable/prompt) and like i said my flash is installed. Got any more advice? Anyone? Thanx
