I have just installed IE8 on windows xp sp2.
When I am trying to watch youtube videos using IE 8, I am not getting video but get a link "go , get it". When I click on this link, I am directed to Adobe FlashPlayer download. Now when I click on download "Adobe FlashPlayer", I get a message in the internet explorer information bR
"Internet Explorer is currently running with add-ons disabled. Click here to manage, disable or remove your add-on"
Now I click on this IE information bar and I get three options "manage add-ons", "About add-ons" and "Information bar help". I checked on manage add-ons, I have got all add-ons enabled listed in there. So why am I getting this message ? How can I install Adobe Flash Player ?
One thing, when I started IE, I got message " 'THe Drive Letter Access Component' add-on version '188.8.131.52' published by '(not verified) Sonic Solutions' is not compatible with Internet Explorer 8" At the top there is warning "THis add-on may cause Internet Explorer to stop responding or crash" So I am going ahead with default selected option "Check online for an update".
But nothing seems to be happening.
Usually I get the warning message "This site may require Active X control". But I am not getting this message and message coming up in IE information bar is "Internet Explorer is currently running with add-ons disabled. Click here to manage, disable or remove your add-on". I dont see any add-on disabled in the list.
So what shall I do now to install Adobe Flash Player ?
Why am I getting such a message in IE information bar ?
Which add-on is disabled in here , shall it not be in the list when I check "manage add-on" ? Is it necessary to turn on all the add-ons ?
