IE8 web page buttons don't work

    i am having a number of problems with ie8, windows 7 64bit.
    Flash doesn't work - youtube just leaves a gap where the video should be, no
    error message.
    downloading flash the "accept and install" button simply refreshes the page.
    downloading google chrome (for testing) the "accept and install" button
    refreshes the page.
    ie8 addons gallery - "add to internet explorer" button refreshes the page if
    i use the links in the addons gallery i get "an error occured"
    most other links seem to work but not buttons.

    have tried,
    resetting internet explorer, removing and reinstalling flash and java.
    running ie with no addons
    disabling/uninstalling norton 360
    removing ie8 (as much as you can in win 7) and replacing it
    tried chrome (had to download the installtion from filehippo to avoid
    buttons) works fine.

    pc is an Acer laptop windows 7 64bit 2.1ghz dual core 3Gb Ram
    with norton 360 installed.

    i would like to completely remove ie8 and reinstall but i don't think that
    is possible in win 7

    any help much appreciated

    Adobe has still not released a 64-bit version of the Flash player. Until
    it does, I recommend using the 32-bit version of Intenet Explorer 8.

    Just buy a mac, then you won't have a buggy browser with flash, and you will
    have a neat and good working 64 bit system with snow leopard.

    Really helpful!
    something else i didn't make clear - I WANT to use windows 7! I WANT to use
    internet explorer.
    i don't understand why, if you don't like (or know) microsoft products, you
    would waste time in the microsoft newsgroups - get a life

    Norton applications are notorious for not uninstalling cleanly!

    But be careful not to buy anything else from Apple, or you'll have
    a severely limited system that will not support flash at all, just because
    Steve thinks it is not worthwile.

    - Get the uninstaller (http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html) to
    completely remove any remnants of their Flash AX control.
    - Disable all [non-Microsoft] add-ons. I usually only disable the
    non-Microsoft add-ons. You could disable all add-ons during the
    reinstall to ensure that none of them is causing a conflict or
    involved in the install problem.
    - Install the Flash Player; however, if you had problems with the
    on-demand installation from within IE, download the installer
    (http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/142/tn_14266.html).
    - The Flash Player should now be the only [non-Microsoft] add-on that
    is enabled.
    - Test if Flash now works. If Flash works, re-enable the other
    add-ons one at a time and retest each one.
