Hello auto, and welcome to Sevenforums!
I may not know a whole lot on exactly what is causing you the problems, but we can troubleshoot a bit to see if we can't find what's going on inside. If youtube works on everything else, then it isn't an ISP problem. First
, are you using the latest version of internet explorer (9)? Do you have the same trouble with another web browser such as firefox or chrome? Second
, Do you have every single "important" update installed, and all internet explorer or web browser - related "optional"
updates installed? And have you updated all
add-ons for all
web browsers that you use, especially
flash player and java?
Just what are all the add-ons that you have installed, especially any security add-ons. Please list them for me. Do you have any tracking protection lists that you might have enabled? Disable all
of those tracking protection lists and check to see if it all works now (may need to restart IE). Now we go a little deeper so gird up your skirt and let's trudge
What antivirus/antimalware software(s) are you running? Some antivirus/malware programs can hinder normal operation, so you might consider disabling all security features temporarily and navigating to a SAFE website, such as youtube, that you've been having trouble with. If you are able to use it well, then the problem lies with your security software(s). Note:
If you've installed another firewall other than the pre-installed windows firewall, disable
it now. I would go as far as removing
it, but it is up to you. Windows firewall works perfectly fine (often better), and you shouldn't
have to disable it at all
during our tests. Also note:
Re-enable everything if the problem persists. Update your antivirus software and do a full scan on your system to make sure it is malware free. If you do not have an antivirus software, use mine: http://www.microsoft.com/security/pc-security/mse.aspx If not, we continue on
Try resetting IE9*
: Reset Internet Explorer settings in Internet Explorer 9 *BUT FIRST:
save all of your favorites (if you have them): Import or export favorites in Internet Explorer
Let me know how all of this turns out!
