Error Message on Internet Explorer Status Bar need help

by andrewghbk99 / July 7, 2007 7:13 AM PDT

Ok I recently bought this new computer that Im using right now. Its running Windows Vista and Internet Explorer 7.

Idk maybe about a few weeks ago this started happening, in the status bar on the internet explorer on most sites that I go to it says "Done, but with errors" (Picture Refs Below) So when I click on the error status bar this is what comes up for all websites that have it.

This is what it says on the status bar:

This is what the error shows for all webpages that the error status shows up on:

I also get this sometimes, not alot. It usually pops up when I sign into MSN Messenger, but will also pop up somes times when browsing the net(The "Line" "Char" "Error" "URL" are not the same that I get, this is just an example picture)

Now some one was telling me to un-install Adobe Flash Player, because I was telling him that I can't view youtube videos or any kind of videos online or anything else online that needs Flash Player. So he said something was probably wrong with my Flash Player, so I unistalled it and I went to install it at the site.

I click on "Get Adobe Flash Player" and it goes to the next page telling me what to do when this and that pops up but nothing pops up for me to install it at all.

So I can't even install Flash Player Right now.

If anyone can help me resolve these problems that would be great.

If you wanna help but not on here and think it would be easier in messenger, you can catch me on Aims at titleholder55 or msn at

Follow the instructions below to install the newest Java on your Vista computer:

Click on the link to Sun's Java below, then click on the ''Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6u2'' download button. Follow the prompts, accept the license agreement, then download the full ''Windows Offline Installation'' file to your desktop,(about 15 MB), scan it with your antivirus (just to be sure it's clean). Once that's done, if you've already got a Sun Java version on the computer, (It appears like you may not though) open the Control Panel, double click on the ''Add/Remove Programs'' section, then uninstall all previous versions of the J2SE Java listed there. Once that's done, then install Java JRE 6u1 from the downloaded installer.

After everything is installed, then open the Control Panel, double click on the ''Internet Options'' icon, then click on the ''Advanced'' tab. When that loads, scroll down to the ''Java(Sun)'' section and make sure there is a CHECK mark next to: ''Use JRE 1.6.0....''. Click on Apply. Then scroll to the ''Multimedia'' section and place a CHECK mark in the ''Play Sounds In Web Pages'', ''Play videos in Web Pages'', & ''Show pictures'' box and UNCHECK the box next to ''Show download Placeholders:'', then click on Apply, then Ok. Then click on the ''Security'' tab in ''Internet Options''. Once that opens, click on the ''Internet'' icon (the World globe), then click on the ''Custom Level'' button. When that loads,make sure the ''Reset to'' line says: ''Medium'', then click on the ''Reset'' button, then select ''Yes/OK''. It asks: ''Are you sure?''.

Next, please try installing Flash Player by using the instructions below:

Follow the procedures below to first Uninstall Flash, then reinstall it..

First, uninstall Flash by using the Flash Uninstaller at the link below..

Once that's done, disable the popup blocker on Internet Explorer, then visit the site below and reinstall Flash..

If you have more than one browser, visit the second link with each browser.. For example, Firefox and Internet Explorer install Flash in different ways. Firefox downloads an installer file where you then install from.

Hope this helps.

Everything seemed to work, until I got to the install the Flash Part. Everytime I try to install it nothing happens, nothing pops up asking me to install or anything.

Download the full Flash ActiveX installer from the link below, then run it to install Flash:

(Although the link below says: Version 9.0.28, I believe it actually installs the most recent 9.0.45)

Hope this helps.
