    Why is this a sticky thread? This can be easily found anywhere on the net. Is it even required to use this site?
    Admin abusing the threads, it seems.

    Note: When troubleshooting issues with any website, after clearing your browser's cache and cookies, exit your browser completely before attempting to access the site again. In Windows, close all your browser windows; in Mac OS X, quit (Command-q) your browser.

    Also, if clearing the cache doesnt work, this is what worked for me.

    Tools. Internet Options. Advanced. then under Multimedia in the scroll down menu, make sure everything has a check mark by it. Apply. Ok. Then restart computer.
