Resolved Question

Help with flash player and trackpad button please?

by ali-maselli / June 11, 2012 6:08 AM PDT

On my laptop, sometimes when I go on YouTube, my Internet explorer crashes and when I click my left trackpad button, most of the time, my laptop seems to register that I have clicked twice, when in fact I have only clicked once! Does anyone know how to solve this issue? Then please could you post it here?

For Flash, try the most common cure.

Google this and pick the article you like and understand.


As to the trackpad, to test if that is a hardware failure, try an external mouse.

Thanks. The problems with Flash player have more or less stopped now, but I am yet to try getting an external mouse, I will give it a go! Happy
