Did you check Internet Options for IE and see if Scripting is turned on? Should be under the Security tab near the bottom of the scolling.

That's not a good idea to have everything enabled under the Security tab for the Internet Zone. Might try resetting that and then check that the Scripting box is Enabled if you still have problems viewing site.

ok. It's reset and have everything done. I think i will go in and do a complete uninstall, even in the registry. That might do it. Then re-install.

O.K i have found the answer to the problem.

Un-install any instances of flash player you have downloaded and then download this version

http://www.softwarep...rnet/flash.html

It's the Vista version of flash and after its installed you will be able to watch youtube videos no problem.

Hope this helps (i know it did for me!)

Try adding youtube.com in Internet Options in under both the Security tab (Trusted Zone) and the Privacy tab/Sites Button. Set to allow. May have to add site to the Content Advisor tab, but try first two first.

hendaz: Thanks for adding the info to your solution. Hope it works for the others.

Ron
