Anyone know (in very layman's terms) what I need to do to fix my YouTube viewing?

Since about February viewing YouTube videos has been real hit & miss and getting worse. It seems like I can only view the older videos and none of the newer ones and now it's getting to the point where some of the older ones won't work. :(

When I attempt to view a video I get "An error occurred, please try again later." and below that "Learn more". If I try later I still get nothing. If I click on the "learn more" I get a bunch of "try this" stuff I don't quite understand and don't know if I should even do or if it will even fix the problem. :confused:

I'm sure I'm not the only one that's had this problem. :turn:

I'm in the same boat as you when it comes to the computer. Life was alot easier without computers and cell phones. Try googling you're problem. RICK

What browser are you using and version? Try using another browser to see if it is the one you are using. Also get a program called Malware bytes and run a full scan on your system. If that doesn't work create another user on your system and see if it works there.

If you are still on Windows XP, you are stuck using IE8 and that's a problem now. Step 1 is to install Firefox or Chrome and start using that.

If you are already using a modern browser, go to Adobe's site and reinstall your Flash Player.

Ya know, I don't think I have Flash Player anymore, well at least I don't see it anywhere. :confused:

I see Adobe Reader X but not Flash Player. I believe I had it. :confused: :turn:

Download Malware bytes. It is free and have it scan the computer, anti-virus doesn't check for Malware.

Agree, I use Malwarebytes at work all the time. It finds bugs that are missed by your Antivirus scanner.

Also, if you installed chrome or Firefox, you may need to install Flash again when using those browsers.

Try installing Java then restart you're computer. Heres the link. RICK
http://www.java.com/en/
Okay, I went to run the Java download and I get a popup that says that it's from an "untrusted" location and asks if I still want to run it.

???????????? :confused: :turn:

I agree with snoopy and kodeman, Malwarebytes is great. I use it in conjunction with Superantispware.com. Both are free to download/use, and do a really good job with cleaning up viruses, spyware, etc.

Also agree with dumping Internet Explorer. I use Firefox, it's a lot faster, and has far fewer errors loading pages.

If you have to use Internet Explorer for whatever reason, you can try resetting it back to factory defaults. Go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced > Click Reset at the bottom. Good luck!

Cache clearing

Remove temporary Internet files and other useless crap like cookies....blah

For win xp.instructions: http://www.ehow.com/how_2293053_clear-cache-windows-xp.html
Win 7: http://superuser.com/questions/62776/how-do-i-clear-the-cache-history-in-windows-7

Win 8: http://www.addictivetips.com/windows-tips/how-to-clear-cache-in-windows-8-guide/

If you have Vista or another OS , google cache clearing for your specific Operating System.

You gotta dump crap sometimes!

I use Avast as anti virus. Free version available and notifies you when your programs need updating. works great!

Keep.your OS up to date. Note that Microsoft has stopped support for XP or will soon.

If you cant load up porn, you have a very severe problem!!
