    I made some kind of change in Internet options several weeks ago, to stop those annoying pop ups at bottom of screen. Well, I made some kind of mistake, now I do not get video on news pages, photos show up with a small blue x and can't be seen. Happens on webpages also. l've also had Adobe tell me several times that it needs to be updated, and I thought it was, but it shows up again. Then I get a message telling me that there are features turned off, and when I look for those features in internet options, I can't find them. Tried to restore, and it tells me the restore failed. Acer laptop, Vista longhorn. Thanks in advance for your help and time.
