I don't know what I should do anymore, since nothing fixes that problem, so I did it all once again to be sure everything is done properly. I just don't think it's a matter of those programs, cuz i tried everything - uninstalling and installing it all over again. It doesn't seem to be my firewall, or browser settings either. But it's weird that more people have the same problem.
And I really appreciate that you're trying to help. :) It's just so annoying... that I can't fix it.

Sorry that I didn't reply promptly.

You earlier tried to allow Youtube as a trusted site. According to your error message it was not youtube, it was s4.ying.com (I believe). You may also want to try and load firefox in safe mode and see if it works.

To load Firefox in Safe Mode, go to "Start" "Run" and type in "firefox -safe -mode"

I tried safe mode - still nothing

I also downloaded that SubInACL (did all that was in the instruction) and checked other options, but [bleep] it, still doesn't work >.>

... uh well but thank you anyway for trying to help

I know it's weird and I don't know if anything except reinstalling windows would repair it. I only I didn't have so many Gigas of my files, I would do it right away.. it's hard to burn everything on cds though.

I also tried to repair windows with the operating system cd but it didn't help either.
Maybe it really is my modem's fault.

if your hard drive dies...your data dies with it

IMHO...any data that you don't have at least 2 copies of is data you don't care about...

I connected another computer to my ISP, and deviantart AND youtube are both working, no glitches.

So... the brightside is it's probably not your ISP. Yay for optimism?

EDIT: I should mention that the computer I used was actually running on IE6 and did not have an updated adobe flash player.

Ah finally after a month or even longer of trying a lot of different ways I've managed to fix it! (though I dunno what exactly was the problem still)
Anyways, for those who still have that problem - maybe this way will help you as well:

1. I went to Menu --> Run --> msconfig, and I disabled almost all programs that were running on startup accept those that I really use daily (I was really surprised that so many of programs were there, though I haven't used it at all)

2. I uninstalled my antivirus and installed a different one (the old one had expired subscription anyway)

3. I used uninstaller to uninstall my flash player

4. I installed the flash for Internet Explorer first and then the plug-in for Firefox (note: I didn't download installers, I went to this site via Explorer and it automatically asked me if i want to install flash player. Same with Firefox plug-in, I went to the same test page and it asked me if would like to install it via Firefox directly)

5. After that those two pages still didn't work properly. I went to DeviantArt and refreshed it by Ctrl + F5.
And suddenly it worked! (it was surprising cuz I tried refreshing it that way before but with no result)
I did the same with youtube and it started working correctly - both sites.

I have no idea which one of the steps helped me to solve this problem. But thank god it works now :)

I don't have another anti-virus to install on my computer, so I didn't do that step... and it didn't work, despite doing all the other steps.

I don't really understand how it coule be the anti-virus... I haven't configured it differently and everything worked before. I don't know if anyone can shed any light on this?

I also didn't have another anti-virus, but some PC specialist told me here I can download a really good anti-virus
and indeed, it seems to work well so far. I also searched for opinions in the net and everybody think this program is really good.

I really have no idea why it started working... and sorry to hear it didn't work for you >.>

I was looking at the same one actually, so I got it now for the computer currently attached to my ISP now. My sister banned me from downloading anything else on her computer, so we just swapped it out. Nothing like ignoring the problem. >__< It was probably the anti-virus though. It was severely out of date.
