Web pages not viewing properly in windows 8

  Mike__81 08 Dec 12

I have recently bought a 8 laptop and have installed the adobe flash player as instructed, but it seems that after viewing a couple of websites, the view of the sites changes as if the flash player is not reading it. when i tried deleting my browsing history it went back to normal again and the pages were coming up properly, but it keeps happening everytime i log on and it happens after viewing about 9 webpages. any ideas as this is driving me insane!!!!

Check in IE10, tools, manage add-ons, under 'show' select 'all add-ons', you should see Shockwave Flash Object. Version should be 11.3.376.12

Flash is now a third party component of the OS and will update automatically via Windows update. Possibly updating the IE version of flash has upset the apple cart.

Run IE without add-ons, mouse cursor to bottom left and right click. Select run and paste iexplore –extoff . IE 10 will open without add-ons. Enable flash, for a while, to see if you get the same problem. If not then it could be another add-on.

Forget that last command in run. Although it's showing as no add-ons are running, they still are.

In IE 10 select tools, internet options, advanced tab and reset Internet Explorer. You will have to reboot. Try running flash based sites for a while to see if ok. You might have to reinstall other add-ons again.
