Windows update breaks Flash!

Here is an insidious new twist from our friends in Redmond (Microsoft). Having lost a patent lawsuit to Eolas Technologies, Microsoft has “fixed” their Internet Explorer software to comply with the terms of the settlement.

As a result of this settlement, the latest Windows update contains a tweak to the Internet Explorer web browser which adds a border around EMBED, APPLET and OBJECT components such as Macromedia Flash, QuickTime, RealPlayer, Java and Adobe Acrobat. This breaks uncountable millions of pages throughout the Net.

To fix the problem, follow these steps:

1) Just below the last <object> in your HTML page, insert the following Javascript:

<script type=”text/javascript” xsrc=”ieupdate.js” mce_src=”ieupdate.js” ></script>

2) Open a new document in Notepad or your HTML editor, and copy & paste the following content into it:

theObjects = document.getElementsByTagName(“object”);
for (var i = 0; i < theObjects.length; i++) {
theObjects[i].outerHTML = theObjects[i].outerHTML;
}

3) Save this file as ieupdate.js

4) Upload both files to your web server, and the problem should be solved.

Even if your Flash based website appears to be unaffected at this time, we strongly suggest implementing the update immediately because your visitors will see a website that behaves in a way you never intended.

Every time I have contacted my host provider. They have responded with speed, courtesy and accuracy they are professional and a joy to work with.

P. LaGambina

I waited to write a review until I had absolutely everything working, thinking that something would come up that eboundhost couldn't solve almost immediately. I've never been so happy to be wrong - their customer support is just incredible.

Shannon I

Awesome Service And Excellent Customer Service!

Cory Farbman

From using your hosting services for dozens of web clients and appreciating your wonderful customer service (all the while enjoying spending my meaty affiliate checks), I look forward to growing with you and watching you evolve surely and steadily into a powerhouse of a force to be reckoned with for your competitors. In an overcrowded abyss of hosting providers it is an absolute MUST to stand out above the crowd if you want to claim your stake and play with the big boys. Period. All I can say is this...Look Out World - GAME ON!!!

S. Gino

There is not a place on this Planet that you can get better service, support or hosting!

Pat

Fast, reliable, full of features... Over the years, I have used more than a dozen hosts, both the big ones and smaller ones; eBoundHost.com is by far my favorite.

Dries J

I was just looking over our emails and adding up how much time you guys have taken to get me squared away with my new eboundhost account. I can't tell you what a relief it is to have fast, dependable hosting and the kind of immediate support I've gotten from you, after having struggled with a sub-standard host for years. eboundhost has, in the short time I've been with you, already saved me hundreds of dollars of billable time. My thanks.

Bart W

Reliability and customer service that is rare and refreshing. We have been using eBoundHost for several years and unlike many companies who's service wanes over the years, the staff at eBound has consistently delivered top notch performance. Bravo!

Don Bailey

I have worked with many hosting companies over the course of my years in the website building and design business. I can say with certainty that eBoundHost.com is among the elite companies. I would and have recommended them to anyone.

Jim Nickerson

I came to eBoundHost after a very bad experience with a so called "big boy" - you know one of those places you are only a number. I have been a satisfied customer for more than 4 years now. The support is second to none.

Gary Hutchison

Cost, technical support and promptness of return calls are of paramount importance to me since most of my work is done on the road and waiting for a reply is frustrating. eBoundHost has been a pleasure to work with friendly, courteous and professional.
