I have set up user accounts as foll;

Myself ---administrator
Wife------standard user

I have no problems but the other 2 accounts have problems running video clips

wmv attachments in Emails
and media center etc

Can anyone please help?

Possibly there Flashplayer needs updating.

you can just try an update or remove the current version and download and install the new version.

Flashplayer removal and reinstallation; click here

or reinstall over the top click here

Note one for IE and one for Firefox/Opera/Flock etc

Thank you SKIDSY for response.

I have tried flashplayer removal and reinstall previously and just tried again. This does not solve my problem.
My problem first appeared 6 months ago and I investigated via numerous forums then. Everything seemed to point to a Flashplayer problem.

I still think it is a flashplayer problem linked to Administrator and Standard user accounts!!!!

Any other suggestions would be very welcome.

Problem Solved

Thank you rdave13.
Downloaded/installed Opera via your link. Had to dload/install another version of flash. (Presumably for Opera.)
After altering IE and Opera defaults to suit I now have 2 browsers available to all users.

I can now run video's from BBC website and YouTube
in Standard User accounts using OPERA browser.
Still will not work in IE.

Give it a try Nick. Hope it works for you.

Thank You All
