Olly, help!!

I got on the forum this morning using my office computer with MS IE (I usually use Netscape on my personal computer).

Almost every time I clicked on a thread to read, it got a window asking me to install Flash 4.0 -Macromedia. :eek:
Does this have to do with the board? Or maybe Internet Explorer?
I have looked at the board on that computer before and never had this happen.
Suppose it's not a big deal, just curious. Any ideas?

The animated banner with the links and flags on top of all pages on Boxerworld is made in flash. Flash is included on all 4 generation browsers and over. For some reasons (flash was probably uninstalled), you don't have that plug in so you just have to install it. It takes 1 minute to download and install it. That was the time it took to Sharon (Krikkit) to install it :)

Thank you. I thought I was going crazy! :)
I need to download the newest version of IE (5.0 or 5.1 I think) anyway. I suppose when I do that, I'll also get the Flash plug-in.

Yes, IE 4 (and over) and Netscape 4 (and over) already have flash included.
IE 5 works fine and the site is enhanced for it. I wouldn't install IE 5.5 (newest version) for the moment as it has many bugs :)

I was wondering if anyone else has had problems getting on the Boxer Board? When i log on i am asked to download a shockwave flash file and when i tell it no my Windows NT doesn't doesn't work right. Does anyone
have a suggestion? I tried to go and download the shockwave file and it did not work. (and i have no idea what it does, i am a little computer DUMB, being blonde does that to you, heheheh)
Can someone please tell me the exact file and give me the site address to download? I would appriciate it very much.
If anyone does respond, Please email me since i am having problems getting on at work. Right now i am at a friends house so i had no problems geting on.

My email address is Melanie.Kacsmar@rcn.net Thanks

Melanie

Hi Melanie, I had to download it too. When I went to the main Boxerworld page http://www.boxerworld.com another screen came up asking if I wante to download it. I just clicked on 'yes' and about 40 seconds later it was done.
