My Windows 7 recently upgraded Internet Explorer to 9. As a result, the home page (fox news) won't load correctly. Using the compatibility icon doesn't have any effect on it. Fox News loads correctly on my other computer which has an older version of IE. I've also noticed that some videos and pictures won't show. I get a black box for the video, and the square with a red X in it for pictures. Any suggestions?

Check is the following if you are using IE9.
Open windows Control Panel, open Internet Options and click the Advanced Tab. Under Accelerated Graphics, make sure there is not a tick against 'Use software Rendering instead of GPU Rendering'. If there is, remove the tick and then click Apply to save the change. Restart IE.
If the above doesn't help ( or doesn't apply ), download the latest installer for Flash Player and save it to your Desktop. Next, close all browsers, open windows Control Panel, open Programs and Features and uninstall Flash Player if it is showing here. When done, restart the PC. Now double click the installer on your Desktop to reinstall Flash Player.
Another option is to download and install Firefox as a temporary measure, as the latest version of Adobe Flash seems to work OK with this - you may need to run the Flash installer again after installing Firefox.

An earlier forum comment said that Internet Explorer x64 did not have support for Adobe Flash Player. Therefore one might use the 32 bit version since both come with Windows 7.
Maybe this is the problem with IE9?
I keep getting the message to upgrade to IE9 and plan on doing. But I was wondering, do both the 32 & 64 bit versions of IE8 get upgraded to IE9? Or just the 64 version?

I was using IE 9, but couldn't get Adobe Flash Player to work with my 64-bit system. So, I am using another browser until there is an update.
