    I am running Vista Home Basic x32, with Internet Explorer 8. I use a web site

    (IMDB.com) quite often to get movie information and to view trailors. Videos

    would play OK on Imdb.com, until I installed a codec pack. When I realized the

    videos would no longer play on IMDB, I uninstalled the codec pack. Videos still

    would not play. I tried a system restore, to a time before installing the codec

    pack. Still no videos on IMDB. I can play videos on any other web site. In fact I

    found that the videos will play using several different browsers. I am partial to IE

    8 and don't want other browsers on my machine. I also found that if I create a

    new user account, the videos will play. I hope someone knows how to make my

    user account play the videos. I have tried everything suggested on the IMDB

    site, and on the Adobe Flash player site. Thanks for any help.

    I finally ended up creating a new user account, and copying everything from tho old account to the new one. That was successful. Now I can view videos on all web sites. Since I had reinstalled the codec pack prior to creating the new account, all Media applications are working fine. Once I was sure everything was working I removed the old user account, and deleted all files in that user folder. I sure there must be something that I could have done to fix the problem in the original account, but I never found it. Thanks again for your suggestions. THIS PROBLEM IS RESOLVED! !

    While yours is an interesting comment -- did you even bother to read the DATE of the post? It was over three months ago! And the poster said their problem was resolved -- which means, they were NOT intending to come back here to follow up on this.

    You don't earn any rewards for posting here -- so please don't resurrect a three-month old post just to add a comment -- one that they're most certainly NOT going to read.
