I have a really annoying problem that is really pi**ing me right off, any help fixing it would be greatly appreciated.

Basically when I go to YouTube in Firefox or any other browser, I click a couple of links and they load fine. Then however every time I click a link the page just hangs. Sometimes if I clear the cache it might go there but often not. It's very sporadic sometimes ages will load, sometimes not at all. Also when I run a search this often comes up and the search will not run >>

Or I get a just a whole page of nonsensical code, which after I refresh the page may go away and then the page loads properly. >>

My system runs windows 7 ultimate and is a P4 3Ghz with 3Gb Ram.

Hi Friend,
Do you have the NoScript extension installed on firefox? If yes, then that can be the problem, coz it doesn’t allow javascript or flash to load. So look for the options, if you have the NoScript extension installed. Also, go to adobe site, and download and install the latest flash player, and shockwave player.

Thanks,
James

Hi there, thanks for your reply. I had the no script plugin on my other computer but uninstalled it. The funny thing is both my computers have this problem. I tried installing latest shockwave and flash, no change though, it still does what it did before, loads a video or 2 normally then that box comes up then pages of nonsense code.

This happens in both internet explorer and firefox.

I assume both systems are attached to the same router?

If so it sounds like a DNS issue, either with your router or ISP.

I'd start be restoring your router to factory defaults (usually a small reset button on the back). Don't forget to reset your security settings when done (wireless security, and change router default login/password).

If that doesn't work. Try an alternate DNS like OpenDNS, or GoogleDNS.
