Now I think I'm having a problem with Adobe Flash -- when I was investigating what the various plug-ins were, just so I'd know what I was disabling, I came across an Adobe page which suggested I update to the latest version of Flash, which I did. However, then I noticed that it came with something called PlusPlus and a McAfee security scan (the latter I didn't want and uninstalled through Add/Remove Programs). I also read that Plusplus was not desirable and so disabled that new add-on. Then later, when I tried to play YouTube, YouTube would not work -- the video portion was just a black screen. So I tried to troubleshoot Flash -- I uninstalled and reinstalled, but YouTube still does not play. When I reinstalled Flash there was no Plusplus this time. I supposedly have the latest version installed, but I'm wondering why YouTube won't play. Also, at one point during this process, a black box similar to what was going on before (but much smaller) blacked out the Flash Installer icon on my desktop. I don't understand what's happening, but feel that, one -- I've messed things up somehow, and two -- given the blacked-out Flash icon, maybe it was a bad version of Flash that has been been causing this problem all along? Is that possible?
