Why won’t Flash work, even however it’s installed?
Adobe Flash is a almost ubiquitous contraption for displaying movie on the web. You must install it, of course, but often that’s not enough.

Wow. Reformatting sure seems like overkill for a problem like this. Reformatting’s a pretty major step, and not something I’d recommend without investigating things deeply.
I’m not sure what might be the problem in your specific case, but I can tell you this: there’s at least one excruciatingly elementary reason that Flash might not demonstrate up on many web sites, even tho’ you’ve installed it.
