Youtube videos won't play

Videos on Youtube won't play. When I type in the Youtube url it doesn't go to the Youtube page but to a page that looks like some king of my settings page. When I click on a video listed on that page I get a message saying: "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player". I checked in IE, and JavaScript is activated, and I have installed and uninstalled Flash Player many times with and without the firewall activated and have rebooted after uninstalling and then installing. I use Firefox. Both when installing and uninstalling I am disconnected from the Internet and have the downloads box closed. I was able to play Youtube videos up until last night with no problems. Before playing any Youtube videos today I ran Ad-Aware, Spybot Search and Destroy and ATF Cleaner. I have not been able to run any Youtube videos after running these programs today, so I think I deleted something with one of these programs which have prevented the Youtube videos from playing. When running ATF Cleaner the only thing I chose not to delete were my Firefox passwords. I can play Youtube videos imbedded in other sites. After installing, Flash Player is listed in control panel, but it's blank on the right hand side of the page for Flash Player where the size of the programs are listed. Flash Player is 1.8mb, and the the mb for much smaller programs are listed in cp. I believe I have had this problem before but was able to resolve it. Thanks for any replies.

I would try downloading Flash Player and reinstalling it and see if that helps.
