    Flash installs, but youtube persists in saying flash missing...even though vids eventually play after a short delay. I get "The Flash Player ActiveX control could not be registered"
    Directx seems to not install.... mcp-ht screams that directx is missing...but vids play there too, once error screen is clicked out.

    I had the same problem with flash. Fixed by installing non-ie version:
    Download Flash Player 11.2.202.235 (Non-IE) - FileHippo.com

    Sorry, forgot to update thread. As previous poster, the flash from file hippo does the trick.
    Also, the directx from filehippo fixed that issue too.
    I have now bookmarked filehippo...

    What happens when you type dxdiag in the run bar?
