    Hi lostwallet.

    A little more information is needed before anyone can offer some plausibly workable solutions.

    Is this a 32bit or 64bit version of Win 7?
    Were there any problems during the reformat?
    Which browser are you using?
    Is FaceBook the only site you have trouble connecting to or are there other sites as well?

    After the re-format did you re-install the Sun Java Runtime Environment?

    Did you re-install the Adobe Flash Player? Note, there are multiple versions of this depending on browser and version of OS(32 or 64bit). You may need more than one version if using 64 bit as well as if you're using IE and another browser like Firefox or Opera

    What(if any) messages are you seeing when trying to run Windows Media Player? Please be as precise as possible.

    Since you reformated, have you installed any "codec" packs such as the K-Lite Codec Pack Full or the Windows 7 Codec Pack?

    When you "try watching movies and nothing loads" do you see any messages? Does this happen at all sites or just some sites?

    Have you tried watching any movie(s)/video(s) using VLC media player? If so what were the results?

    Are you seeing any other unusual messages during normal operation of the computer?

    IF you want too play movies and other stuff Go with this Codec pack i have never turned back its free and use's all the codecs.
    just install this and you don't need any other Pack
    Just un-install any other codec you have in stalled first.

    If you Don't want any other players use that codec pack this even plays DVD's if you have a DVD player.

    Link too facebook help

    You tube works fine for me
    What you need too do is install the flash player for Both
    Internet Explorer And For Other Browers.

    Most likely that is the reason for no videos showing.And make sure its either for 32bit windows or 64bit.If you install 32bit on a 64bit system most likely it will not work.Make sure you get the right up dates.

    When ever you reformat and reinstall Windows, the first thing you want to do is make sure your drivers and Windows itself are up to date. You also need to have adequate security installed and up to date, firewall, anti-virus, and anti-spyware. If you don't, your computer is not going to stay in working order for any length of time.

    If you now suspect there is malware on the machine you should follow the steps in the READ & RUN ME FIRST Malware Removal Guide, then start a new thread in the Malware Removal forum attaching the requested logs created while following the guide.

    If you choose the malware removal route instead of a reformat/reinstall, please do not make any further changes to your computer except for the instructions in the guide and later the instructions provided by the malware removal Experts in the Malware Removal forum. Once you've been given an all clear in the Malware Removal forum you can come back to this thread and continue on.

    If you start here http://majorgeeks.com/
    what happens when you scroll down and type your search term in the box on the left not the box at the top of the page?

    The top of the page is a special google search and loads in a frame.
    The search on the left under FILES is different.
