    The other day, I was unable to load a web site that used the flash plugin. Uninstalled, repaired permissions and reinstalled flash. No good. Saw that the new quicktime was screwing up people's flash, so uninstalled and reinstalled that, too. Now my powerbook won't run Flash or QT. Anyone else had this problem and solved it?


    P.S. Please answer in english. I don't speak techy very well.:)

    Any web site. Tried one my kids like to play, starfall.com, Yahoo Fantasy Baseball. And now, QT won't even work on files from my hard drive.

    Anyone else have this or similar problems?

    Flash and QT

    Open your System Preferences. Under Internet and Network, open the QuickTime panel. Go to the Advanced tab and click on the Mime Settings button. Go to the Miscellaneous - Miscellaneous File Formats and open the pull down menu. Uncheck the Flash Media check box.
