After scraping the laptop off the wall near me .... I had another look at my anti virus which has been disabled on many occaisions to assist with installations. The program is called Total Defence Internet security Suite. I noticed a few web sites that I have been to marked as being blocked, so I went looking and found a selection for Pop up Blocker control. I disabled all settings and everything worked. Youtube, farmville, gumtree, and all the flash testing sites. .. Thanks for all the assitance.
