Windows 7: Unusual Error Message When Viewing Videos in IE9

Unusual Error Message When Viewing Videos in IE9

Win7 64 bit with Adobe Shockwave and Flash Player installed.

On my laptop (not the desktop described in my profile) I get the following message when viewing any one of the videos using IE9(32 bit) on this website: - Breaking News, Latest News & Top Video News - ABC News.

Error Saving Localized Settings
Application is unable to access your file system

The videos play fine once I clear the message box by pressing OK. The problem does not occur on my desktop and I notice no difference in the two setups. Nor does it occur under Firefox on either machine.

Will someone try to help me here?

Thank you very much.

A correction and additional information.

First, I mistakenly said it did not occur under Firefox. As it turns out, Firefox has the same problem

Second, If I log on the the ADMINISTRATOR account, the problem does not exist.

Third, He is a additional video that causes the problem. Texas Teen Killed Before Testifying in Court | Video - ABC News.

Does this help in answering the problem? I hope so.

Thank you
