Re: I've been having a problem with VT...
It sounds like a problem in one of four areas: ISP, cookie/privacy settings, out of date applications, or parental controls. First, I recommend you ask your ISP (Internet Service Provider) about it. See if they have some restriction for some scripts. Explain to the tech support the problem you're having and see if they can explain it or fix it. Next, ask your mom if she ever put parental controls on either computer or any other program for that matter (use you judgment about the programs). Then look into your cookie and privacy settings. Just as a test, make them allow everything. Also, put your firewall down (permanently because of the next step) because some firewalls restrict some applications. Restart your computer and keep your firewall disabled so it doesn't start up. Now try it. If it works, then it was one of the previously mentioned problems. If not, look for updates for your Windows XP on the Windows Update website (open IE >> Tools >> Windows Update). Update your browser(s). After that, update your Java installation. Since the FlashChat runs on Flash, go update your Flash at Adobe's website. Update anything else you can think of. Then try it again. Come back with any results and findings.
Happiness is not about being perfect.
It is about seeing beyond the imperfections.
