Windows 7: Random Adobe update led to Microsoft SE disabled; infected?!

One last thing:
Recently, on IE9, some of the Youtube videos don't contain 480p viewing for one, but mainly, when I want to go to full screen, it doesn't expand to the full screen, just the "viewing" portion of IE9. I don't have this problem with Firefox. I'm wondering if its my Flash, because Firefox noticed something about Flash for that browser and dl-ed/updated for me. IE9 doesn't have that, and I'm wondering if Flash needs something to work for this bug to be fixed. But then again, I don't know if its that or IE9, or something else, y'know?

The video player's icons look bigger, and the settings I would only see if I went to 240p, because it's showing two sides: one side shows 360p, the other being video speed. Now again, certain videos I see this (though I would say I'm seeing it more now), wheras other videos are just normal. Again, only on IE9, not Firefox.

Also, I just noticed that the videos with that problem, don't show up in my history. Even those I saw recently, that show up with that player problem, still staying where they were before like I didn't it reacently.

PS I'm kinda confused because I don't have an Adobe folder, but anything Adobe related (which I have to find really hard) is in the folder SysWOW64 (???) Is that weird, or normal?

Here are what they look like (videos with the issue)


(others strangely without the issue)

Nate, I don't see where you click the "full screen" button and it doesn't go full screen. It all looks normal to me. The speed setting makes the video play faster or slower. The full screen button is the one 4 buttons away from the quality settings you have open in the pictures, to the right.

This isn't an adobe problem, this is just how youtube changed to be like (owned by google, constantly changing)

My abd, this is what the full screen looks like from the first image:


But YT wasn't like this before the clean install, that's why I'm saying something must be off. Like I'm going backwards or something.

From Adobe: Shockwave; and I have Norton Safe Web Lite. Norton Safe Search (Bing is disabled). Windows Live E-mail (don't use it), and Bing map and translate (don't use those either).

Should I reinstall Adobe Flash?

Wait, could this be due to my connection speed (only from IE9 though)? Maybe that got affected (again, IE9; because Firefox is fine).

This is on Firefox: see the settings? That's not the case for this same vid on IE9:


Maybe this could help: upon click HTML5, I read this "
Fullscreen support is partially implemented. Pressing the fullscreen button will expand the player to fill your browser. If your browser supports a fullscreen option, you can then use that to truly fill the screen." Sounds like my problem.

And it says that I'm "currently in the HTML5 trial." And that page says that my browser suppourts
Video tag, h.264, but not WebM. Maybe all this could help.

Yea, I was testing it out the other day, and it doesn't have all its bugs worked out yet. I believe that once Win8 comes out, HTML5 will be used instead of adobe flash, at least for websites that use HTML5 (such as youtube).

Glad it is working and the fix wasn't too hard! Let us know if you have any other difficulties!
