MSNBC and Limited Account

by wildbird / May 4, 2006 10:36 PM PDT

Recently I had problems to play MSNBC video. After a fresh installation with hard disk formation I am now able to play msnbc video both administrator and limited account on my laptop. It also had problem at first then after repeated installation of macromedia flash player the problem had solved.

The same problem I have on my desktop computer too then I did reformat the hard disk and installed the OS. Like my laptop I experienced same problems. After repeated installation of macromedia flash player I am able to play msnbc video on administrator account but the limited account cannot play msnbc video. I got the following message:

Have you tried...

This has happened to me numerous times in the past, and the following usually works:

1.) Log out of the limited account completely. (Don't just use fast user switching.)
2.) Go into the administrative account and change the limited account to an admin.
3.) Log into the now-administrative account.
4.) Use that account to install Flash Player.
5.) Restart.
6.) Log into the now-administrative account and test it.
7.) Log out of that account completely.
8.) Log into the administrative account and turn the now-admin back into a limited user.
9. Log back into the limited account and see if it works.

Hope this helps,

ZoneAlarm Security Suite 6 or Norton Anti Virus 2005

In reply to: Have you tried...

I did the installation after changing the Limited Account to Administrator Account. Now I found the problems of my Desktop computer. First I disabled the ZoneAlarm then I clean all the cookies and temporary files then sometimes I was able to watch MSNBC videos. Then I uninstalled ZoneAlarm but nothing much different from the disabled zonealarm. So again I uninstalled the Norton AV 2005, this time everything works properly. Then I rinstalled ZoneAlarm and use its AV, I works perfectly. Again I disabled AV of ZA and installed McAfee AV v.10 it works fine.

On my laptop I use Norton and ZA but no problems.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
