First off, in Internet Explorer, nothing will 'mark as read' on forums, and when I edit a post I have to do a hard refresh before the changes actually show up for me, otherwise if I have to add something to it, it reverts back to what it was before I edited it.

Also, I have a problem with ActiveX; I can't view any videos embedded in a webpage (not including YouTube or Nascar.com), and whenever I have Quicktime installed, it will appear as a Quicktime logo, if it isn't installed it appears as a red X. I also can't see any custom MySpace countdowns as the same exact thing happens. This happens whenever I get a message saying 'click to run an ActiveX control on this webpage'. I heard it was a problem with a Windows update, so I went to download the patches to fix it, but they become corrupted whenever they download. Please help.

First of all, I would check the security level in your browser; try changing it to "Medium" (on the menu bar, press Tools > Internet Options menu, and select the Security tab.)

Then, clean the browsing history and all the temporary Internet files. This will help fix the problem of the corrupted update files; next time you download them, the computer will get them again from the Internet instead of using the corrupted version already stored in your disk.

Next, check how your browser handles page updates. Maybe you have a custom setup that forbids the browser to auto-update a page (which would explain the situations with the forums not marked as read).
On the menu bar, go to Tools > Internet options, historial, setup. You can adjust how often the browser checks for updates (set it to "automatically") and how much disk space it will use to store temporary files (I always set it to the minimum, 8 MB; otherwise those temporary files tend to accumulate and remain unused, wasting disk space.)


Finally, if you're still running IE 6, be aware that it has been having troubles recently; it is the version that crashes at random when opening NickDisk, for example. Many problems with IE are fixed when you update to IE 7.0, which you can download for free from Microsoft Update.


Hope this helps. Bravo

I'm running XP. I haven't run on '98 since encino was around Embarassé

I fixed the refresh problem but Mozilla FireFox doesn't have the ActiveX error, so I can watch embedded video and plugins only on Mozilla.

You should use an updated anti-virus after re-installation.
It will work good all after that.

The solution of the shared problem is very impressive but I think its not the troubleshooting of your browser.

I think you should replace it now.
Overall you have done everything for it.
