I cant play videos on youtube or hulu and i also cant download ANYTHING from the net.
I started my laptop up after a update and it said CCC has stoped working, and now i cant watch videos or download, i think its connected because before the "ccc has stoped working" poped up everything worked fine.

I tried to install the latest version of Ati ccc and it wont download i tried a simple mod file for a video game i play and still nothing happens... Please help :(

what is happening exactly for example what is happenin when you try to download something from the internet

can you get on a website or not at all?

are you sure the reason you cant watch youtube is that you have a really old version of flash?

So what happend was I had an update from windows , about 7 updates and they all installed but one and it said it failed, this is what i see when i click the details on it.

I have tried to download it again of course, and can not download anything. I have tried system restore and reapplying the updates and that dident work. and do now I turn the computer on and everything loads up and comes to life, then i get a pop up and it says Ati CCC has stoped working and gives me two buttons one to search online for a solution and two to close the progam.
i have clicked the search online button and it brings me to a page with a few diffrent solutions and none have worked.It basicly wants me to down load the lates version and i cant download it. I get a second pop up after i close the first, that says the same thing. I am able to go to websites and surf the net, when i go to download something for a web page nothing happens, i click the download button and it may send me to a page that says you download will begin in 10 or 30 seconds blah blah and if it doesnot then click here and i wait then i clcik there and still nothing, no file pops up promting me to save or open the file, i get nothing. and on youtube the video screen is black and i see no play buttons or anyting just black. Im not sure if i have the latest version of flash but im sure i do, and if i dident would it say i need to install the lates version? And also if i find that i do not have the latest flash,then i need to downlaod it, and i cant lol. what a mess.

Ok UPDATE!!!

I installed google chrome and now i can download anything and watch videos on youtube and on netflix and its alot faster so i think the problem was with IE.
the CCC still isent working but my system seems unaffected by its absence...
so i guess if anyone else is haveing problems with downloads and videos, stop useing IE cause its sucks space balls!!!!! :D  lol thanks for helping me out, i figured i would pop on and let everyone know its fixed. I came upon a few posts in other forums that had the same problem and all i got for a solution was "its fixed , thanks " and "Nevermind my awesome bro fixed it for me " cause that helps us sooooooooo much lol.
Pissed me off lol . BUt yes its all better, thanks for the help and ADIOS!!!!!!!!!!!!
