I'm using IE. When I try to go full screen it will play in an area about half screen size. No error messages or anything like that. Videos play but just not on the full screen.

I haven't tried reinstalling or anything.
and I bet if you watch closely the toolbar application disappears when you load a video. Its an update just got to work out which one.
If I remember correctly when it worked right on XP, the toolbar would disappear when you went to full screen and would reappear when you moved the cursor.

On Windows 7 it would still disappear and reappear properly, it's just that the video would only be playing on part of the screen.

Windows 7 came installed, but I'm not impressed. Had XP on my old computer and had less problems.
