Help for technical issues on your PC
« on: May 28, 2012, 03:46:35 PM »

I thought this a good place for helping members in need of advice to solve technical issues on their PC.

For instance, Amaterasu for one can not watch the youtube videos we often place in our posts for fear the Flash plugin will start, which causes her PC to freeze up.

Anybody have an easy suggestion for getting around this?


The 2 solutions to this that I am aware of are -


A) Go to one of the various websites that allows you to download youtube videos by entering in the URL of the video you want, and then you can watch them from your own hard drive. (These sites make also invoke flash though, not sure.)

You can locate the URL of a video in a post by clicking QUOTE on that post, and you will see the video code displayed.


B) We find and use an FTP site to share videos, again being able to watch them from your hard drive.



I am confident we have enough savvy members here to overcome any obstacle a member may be having.

Yes, the Flash virus kicks in any time I'm at a site that uses a Flash element.  I had to back off going to 12160 because of this and it's aggravating.  If I want to edit My blog there, I know I have to endure slowness, and then reboot afterwards.

And every page of YT that kicks the vid in actively starts the whole annoying process.  I had a free scanner software that found the virus but would not clean it off unless I "upgraded" (for a price).  It would clean the low-risk cookie things, but when I told it to clean the Flash thing, POOF! There was the "Upgrade Now?" thing.

Thanks for reminding Me!  Been so busy with other things.  Going to get it now.

EDIT to add:  Hmmm.  I go here:  http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html  and click the DL button and it takes Me to:  http://www.avs4you.com/AVS-Video-Converter.aspx?type=GoogleImageAds&gclid=CPWSrKaRpLACFUFo4AodxjhRZA

Is this the right page?

Amaterasu, Just try another browser, it'd be useful to track trouble.

I have - I'm on Chrome, but have tried Firefox and IE (eewww).  Same problem.  Doesn't slow down just the browser - everything slows down.

Well...  It's unclear.  That may have been an ad.  Below that are like 100 links to lots of stuff - and now I'm totally confused.

Yeah I see that, it IS a bit confusing.

I wandered around and found their download link here :

http://www.erightsoft.com/S6Kg1.html

It's the big one at the top of the page that says DOWNLOAD

Yeah.  That's the one that took Me to  http://www.avs4you.com/AVS-Video-Converter.aspx?type=GoogleImageAds&gclid=CPWSrKaRpLACFUFo4AodxjhRZA

Way down at the bottom of the  http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html  page - and I mean right at the bottom - is the actual DL.  There's two options, but I clicked the right button and seem to be getting the eright program.

Nothing like totally confusing pages, I tell You what!

Ok.  THAT didn't work.  It kept trying to change My browser home page.  I quit the install - and a stupid browser tab opened trying to get Me to "click here before time runs out!"

OK i was wrong. The big download button at the top is not it.

it's a teeny little blue link in the lower left that starts the download -

http://www.erightsoft.info/GetFile.php?SUPERsetup.exe

(you can run it from here using the above link)
