Unable to Display Adobe Flash Player and YouTube Website

I have a Dell XPS Studio 435T/9000 Desktop with Intel Core i7 CPU and 6GB RAM. The operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1 with IE9 32bit. Graphics Card is a ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series. Win 7, IE9 and graphic card have all have been updated.

My problem is that some websites cannot display flash content, or displays the webpage in an HTM text format, or cannot find the website (YouTube) at all.

My attempts to solve the problem thus far have proved futile. I have:
  • Updated graphic/display driver.
  • Downloaded and installed Adobe Flash Player's latest version Have installed and uninstalled it several times.
  • Reset IE9 several times.
  • Enabled/Disabled - "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering" - feature several times
  • Run malware scans - no virus found.
  • Uninstalled IE9 and installed IE8. Adobe Flash Player would work but website YouTube would not display properly. Either website not found or displayed in HTM text format.
  • Re-installed IE9. Received error msg when websites trying to display Adobe Flash Player (latest version). Again YouTube would display in HTM text format or page not found.
I have exhausted my limited knowledge of Windows 7 and IE9 in trying to solve this problem. I am hoping someone out there that can help solve this problem.

Thanks and regards

I solved my problem.
