    Have you got the latest versions of Java and Macromedia flash player installed?

    You could also download and use Firefox from HERE

    I have just looked at the site in your post using Firefox and it seems fine.

    One of the great things about Firefox is that if you go to a site that needs a plugin. Firefox will let you know and can download and install the required plugin for you.

    I did a firefox experiment before that lead to a re format when it all went wrong hence I am nervous about that. (see a prevous post that folk still find the link and ask if I sorted it)

    Just been looking at your post from last year about your Firerfox troubles.

    That was quite sometime ago and things have moved on alot since then.

    You could always create a restore point then download and install Firefox.

    If it causes you problems then just do a system restore.
