Whats wrong with Win media player and Flash player?

Just recently I have been having a problem with Windows Media player. Everytime I hit the full screen button the screen goes black, tries to go full screen, fails, and then goes back to regular mode.

The other problem I am having is I can not install the adobe flash player. I tried there website for technical help and tried just about everything to no avail. Any ideas?

I also get another error when I close IE. I'll post it later.... something about a rutime error at a certain location..., I think...

I was having flash player issue as well in IE, but not Firefox. I download the flash removal tool from Adobe's site (in the help or FAQ section) and then re-installed and it was fine. Can't comment on the WM problems

Are you using a limited account or an Admin account? I believe there was some issue with IE and limited accounts with Flash player, but not in Firefox. I have my kids running under limited accounts, etc and remember going through this sometime last year. Ended up just switching them over to FireFox. That issue still shows up as unsolved by Adobe and having been reported to MS, I believe.



If you are not having the issue with a limited account, it could be the following:
