Hi folk... My first post and I will enjoy reading other's...I am not a professional IT person...a 72 year old lady that has just been involved with computers for more years than I care to admit to...remember the IBM 360 and the Burroughs Beastly B80?...and have had my own PC since the early eighties.
I usually use open source browsers but because I teach others of my age to get the most out of their computers, I downloaded the new IE8 and found it wouldnt open a tried and true webpage that would open on all those browsers that I have used!!!!
The message included the dangerous piece of code called swflash.cab... when googling for information (how I found this site) it seems that some gamers programmers and others were experiencing a similar problem.
To cut a longish story short...I went to the Adobe site and downloaded the item...extracted and installed it from C:\Windows in it's own folder. Voila....I can now open the oh so clean Lottery web site here in Queensland australia.
