Windows 7: Updating IE9

Nah, I don't run Java and I'm fine on Youtube, but it did cross my mind a few times. I also thought about Shockwave player and Air. They used to be tied to Flash, but I don't have either on my machine - so I ruled them out.

Yeah, follow the uninstall directions - start to finish and consider using the full pkg download.

If it's still not working..

I don't know how much you configure on IE, but you might consider defaulting your IE 9 security zones and restoring advanced options. The final consideration would be to reset IE.

Note: I was editing my post to include what Youtube suggested when you posted, so it might not have been in the list when you read my post.

I'm not sure that I have anything left after this - everything keeps going back to what I already posted. I'll be out most of the day Sat. I'll check in the evening to see if I had any epiphanies during the day.

Epiphany 1: Is it just Youtube? Try The Daily Show and Star Trek part 1 | part 2- both have players.
Epiphany 2: Could HTML5 be part of the issue? Try leaving the HTML5 trial on Google if you're part of it, remember to join again if that's what you want.

Ok, time to spend the day with my granddaughter.

Bill,

Been working on this youtube problem for about two un/installs this morning, it finally boiled down to the popup blocker.

Even though I had it off I had to add www.youtube.com to the allowed list.
There was still one video that only played audio, but I jumped around to about twenty others and they all played normally A/V both.
By then I lost that one and couldn't find it to re-test it.

When I installed Flash back on FF it took right off and started playing video and audio. Must be something about security with IE9.


Now I have to figure out why FF will stop responding on initial opening, close it and open the second time and its okay.

Thanks for hanging in there with me!

Steve


Addendum:

1.) Just saw your post, TDS, and ST both played normally A/V both.

2.) That HTML5 looks interesting, I will be checking that out.

3.) Enjoy your time PapPap they grow up so fast!

No problem Steve,

PA folks are good folks.

Dang! Saw something about popups and thought "Nah! that couldn't be it". Should have posted it anyway, but I put so much out there already didn't want to overload anyone following the breadcrumb trail - lol
Edit: I did mention popups way back in post# 55. But.... just checking the setting wouldn't help, you had to manually add youtube.

There's that mystery bit somewhere in IE that's making Flash a bit wonkey - perhaps other things will clarify. You'll be surrounded by angry dwarfs, an error will appear and say "Here is the problem - just enable the xyzzy option"

Ok, I'm off today. going to the zoo and then the movies.

Bill

Must be doin' sumpin' right, as I post this there are 73 bread crumbs, and 1,352 followers.
For some reason I thought "Oh what the heck" lets make sure IE9 doesn't mis-understand and added it to the list, and it worked!

Do you mean this, Solution 2: ? Movies don't appear in browser | Flash Player installed I thought about editing the registry, but at that point I didn't want to get that drastic, yet.

Odd about the popup setting, good workaround.

No, I was just goofing. The text based role action game ADVENT (Adventure) from the early days. You can download a Windows version here. That's a direct download link - the wiki page gives away too many cheats - better to be frustrated and figure it out than to know the answers - similar to problem solving. We used to read the code for the cheats - FORTRAN on Prime Computers.




Memorable lines from the game are:
  • Rub Lamp:
    Rubbing the electric lamp is not particularly rewarding. Anyway, nothing exciting happens.
  • A huge green fierce snake bars the way!
    Kill snake (or any creature):
    With what? Your bare hands?
    Yes to kill with bare hands
    Congratulations! You have just vanquished a creature with your bare hands! (Unbelievable, isn't it?)
  • Kill bear:
    With what? Your bare hands? Against *his* bear hands??
  • Feed bird:
    It's not hungry (it's merely pinin' for the fjords).
    – a reference to Monty Python's Dead Parrot sketch
  • Hit bear (after feeding it):
    The bear is confused; he only wants to be your friend.
  • The game responds to a frustrated player's swearing with Watch it! and to commands to eat inappropriate things (e.g., the bird, the snake) with
    I think I just lost my appetite.
  • A sign posted on the bridge reads, "Stop! Pay troll!"
  • blast:
    Blasting requires dynamite.
  • Typing a word that describes something in the forest:
    The trees of the forest are large hardwood oak and maple, with an occasional grove of pine or spruce. There is quite a bit of undergrowth, largely birch and ash saplings plus nondescript bushes of various sorts. This time of year visibility is quite restricted by all the leaves, but travel is quite easy if you detour around the spruce and berry bushes.
I always like this game and just downloaded it for Auld Lang Syne.

Your registry edit nugget is interesting. MS regularly releases Kill bits through WU. I checked the value in my registry and it is set to zero as the Adobe reference suggests.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000}]
"Compatibility Flags"=dword:00000000

Having a look-see in your registry won't hurt.

A clean install of IE9, you say? Maybe this was already posted in this thread.

To uninstall Internet Explorer
If you're trying to uninstall Internet Explorer because of an issue with the browser, first check to see if a solution is listed in Internet Explorer 9 Help and How-to.
The following instructions apply to both Windows 7 and Windows Vista.
  1. Click the Start button , type Programs and Features in the search box, and then click View installed updates in the left pane.
  2. Under Uninstall an update, scroll down to the Microsoft Windows section.
  3. Right-click Windows Internet Explorer 9, click Uninstall, and then, when prompted, click Yes.
  4. Click one of the following:
    • Restart now (to finish the process of uninstalling Internet Explorer 9 and restore the previous version of Internet Explorer).
    • Restart later
Note
After you uninstall Internet Explorer 9, the previously installed version of Internet Explorer will be available on your PC. It isn't necessary to reinstall.

If the previous steps didn't work to uninstall Internet Explorer, see How to uninstall or remove Internet Explorer 9 when the standard uninstallation process doesn't work.
I know this thread is marked solved and this information comes late - but..... if all else fails, someone following might consider uninstall. One word of caution - even though the MS instructions tell you that the previous version of IE will automagically be available, you should have another browser on your system.

Mine are the same:
Code:
 
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000}
"Compatibility Flags"=dword:00000000
Yours:
Code:
 
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\ActiveX Compatibility\{D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000}]
"Compatibility Flags"=dword:00000000

Do you remember an old floppy game called "Leisure Suit Larry" ?


I'll be in and out, I'm staying up for the Orionids haven't seen any "shooters" yet, but it's early.
