    Video playback impossible in Internet explorer 7

    Hello
    Since update of Internet Explorer (from the version 7), not play the videos on the net. I try every possible video sites like youtube, meta cafe etc. I understand that because my browser blocks ads but I do not know what parameters need to be change to play video.
    Thank you in advance for help

    P.S I am using Windows vista home and windows media player

    Vista sometimes has a glitch where even though the default programs are selected, you have to reset them. Go into the default programs utility and change the program for the file type (i.e. .wmv) and actually navigate to the Windows Media Player.exe in program files. This should allow it to recognize the file type as associated with WMP. I had the same problem where it would just attempt to either download the video or error. Unfortunately I needed to do this for each extension. Hopefully this helps.

    In Windows Internet Explorer 7, go to the Tools menu, select Phishing Filter, and then click Phishing Filter Settings. In the dialog box that appears, under Phishing Filter, select Disable Phishing Filter.
