Maybe I will try it but I have been often reluctant to update Avant in the first place because of various issues so I tended to use an older version and not update routinely.
Now while I like AB's extras it often works unpredicably.


And now since the SP3 upgrade and all the resets etc for example, I now find the BBC "latest News" tickertape" not even showing up in IE or Avant on:

Do you get any error message or script error indications? Any other sites with problems?
I suggest resetting IE again - failing that I can provide advanced reset procedures for IE.

No error messages.

And I'm now finding flash clips from the BBC site and Youtube clips are playing up so I hear the sound but the picture keeps freezing.

Is that also with both IE8 and Avant too?
It could be that Flash isn't installed correctly, try this:
* Close all browsers
* Uninstall Flash - Uninstall tool
* Remove folder %windir%\system32\Macromed\Flash\
* Reboot computer
* Reinstall Flash ActiveX Plugin (if using Vista/Win7 - run as administrator)

(Download the linked files first)

It's specific to Avant. The same videos play OK in IE8.

Did you try the IE reset and Flash reinstall tips anyway? No harm in trying.

The tickertape on the BBC news is now visible.

and the zoom is now working OK
Thanks for your help.

How very strange that the 11.7 build was functioning incorrectly for you.
I hope that you have the pre-release build that was released today.
Thanks for confirming - let me know if you have any further issues.
