Hello all!!

First off let me just say i'm very pleased to have found your site, as these look like very helpful forums! Anyway, here goes:

Well my problem concerns YouTube.com as the title bar suggests.. I'm not sure if i'm aloud to ask about this since it's another site, but i'm going to try my luck none the less. Recently i have been getting alot of the "We'r sorry, this video is no longer available" message. Now i know they haven't been deleted for a fact, because i've checked with some friends that they can play videos which i have been prompted to be deleted. I'm guessing this has something to do with some registry issues or maybe spyware? But i don't really know how to fix it.. Would anyone here know??

Thanks in advance for any help!!
Matt.

Have you tried it in a different browser? Can you post a link of one that you are having a problem with?

Hello coachwife6 ;)

Sorry i forgot to inform you that i'm using FireFox. I have tried IE aswell and sometimes they work on IE. However i want to be able to play the videos on Mozilla and it's quite baffling since they used to work fine :)

Here are some links that don't work for me;

Help!! :)

Are all your windows updates up to date including flash, shockwave, etc.?

I can see these videos.

Are there permissions set on your computer, ie: is it your parent's computer and they have put permissions on it?

What are your security options in IE or firefox? They may be set too high.

You might even clear out your cache, close down your browser and open it again.

Hello again :)

I'm admin on this computer and all the other computers on the network.

I have cleared cache || Updates up to date! .. Well as for the security it's still standard as i have never changed it since i used Firefox ..

Here's the tricky part! I am able to view the videos today? I have no idea what's going on but this might also help;

Randomly, when i open my browser, Google asks me to fill in a required field with some letters because their site suspects me to be infected with malware? Yet today it's not doing it either. So i can't take a screenshot..

I understand i may start to be an annoyance at this point haha.. Therefore, Should i just stop bothering you and hope that the system stays as is at the moment or is there something wrong that needs to be fixed here? :)

Matt.

1. You are not bothering me.
2. I am not a huge fan of registry fixers. They have their purpose.
3. If it was working OK yesterday before you started tinkering with it more, can you restore it back to the date it was working much better?

Click Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools.
Click on System Restore and follow the instructions. LMK how it works. :)

haha thanks :) You're so nice!

Well i havn't made any adjustments to anything, i just ran a Full system scan using my Bit Defender, then used Spybot S&D to check for spyware, uniblue registry fixer and uniblue's speedupmypc..

But i these are really a weekly routine i have... Its all random.. game work's fine sometimes, other times it doesn't.. Same with my IE and youtube... my registry fixer still refuses to work however, ever after system restore..

Maybe i should just reinstall it?

I would uninstall the registry fixer, IMO.

I don't know the answer to your second question. Can you run a hijack this log and place it in this topic? We usually don't do that but let me have a look to see if anything fishy is going on.
