Myspace Flash problems

Been having trouble for the last week with Myspace. On my own page or if I go to any other users page the music player doesnt load in and play. I have tried it today on my Dads PC and it works fine so I suspect the problem is with my PC.
I dont know if it is a Flash problem or maybe a Javascript problem but I have been reading around and a few sites have pointed me that way so I have uninstalled and reinstalled Flash and Java so many times.
Recently I did have trouble with Trojan virus infection and I ran so many anti virus, anti spyware type stuff that Im thinking that one of these may have changed some settings somewhere stopping the music players loading in?
Any advice gratefully received.

To find out if which (if either) is the problem;

Test Javascript; click here

Test Flash & Javascript; click here

They both seem to be ok.

Still got the problem though...

What shall I try next?

Using Internet Explorer? If it's version 7, go to Tools/Internet Options, click Advanced tab, click Reset. Close IE, open it again and try the site(s). Check your firewall and/or antivirus software isn't blocking things - products like Mcafee and Norton tend to monitor web-pages for things to block.

Tried the reset and have gone thru (I think) all my anti virus and firewall stuff but the problem is still there

Same problem

Have you tried in Firefox click here

No, never tried firefox.
Think it is worth it?
Im still not 100% sure its not something that Ive done in my virus removal?
Might spend an hour going thru it all tomorrow when Ive got more time and less beer!
Might also try firefox.
Keep those ideas coming folks... :)

In my opinion Firefox is prefered over IE,and im sure several forum members would agree.

Ok, will try it tomorrow and report back.

Thanks for all your help so far!
