Hi,
Not yet but Flash yes but keep in mind modern browser do not need flash object/ player
Java No beside what makes you think you even need Java from Oracle it's the most unsecure browser add-on you can ever install ?

Hi,
Thanks for the update,
You can if you want install flash player if you run into some websites you like that need it but please get it from Adobe's site and not from the website requesting it
http://www.adobe.com/downloads/

Same goes for Java although please read through these before you do download Java from Oracle and only get it from it's site,
Interesting reads,

Hi Toosun2009

Try going down to the Start and browse Internetsettings and open that.

Go to advanced
Check the first available box it says something about "GPU"

Then go down to the "Reset" button and reset all settings... Try and see if it helps.

Reset will void any changes :/
