Windows 7: unable to enter youtube, and even if i enter videos wont load

unable to enter youtube, and even if i enter videos wont load

ive recently had this problem with youtube, where videos wont load at all and just yield the "an error has occured, try again" or something kind of message, it was right after the google+ update, then problems then became worst where im unable to even enter youtube directly, i can sometimes enter through other links but still wont load them.

also any embed videos will take a lot of time appearing, only to give a "there was an error with the dns server", the thing is this problem only happens on my pc, we have 2 more computers, one is an old hp pavilion windows xp pc and the other is an amd athlon with windows 7 home edition, any help i can get?

i hae already cleaned my cookies and internet historial, defragmentated both my C: and Dmain one) disk, also cleaned all of the erros in my comp with ccleaner registry and another dll fixer cleaning function (this doesnt actually change dll stuff, just cleans corrupted aplications and old registry keys, other programs use this exact same function like avg and ragclean), searched for virus, and malwares (using avg, which, anyone could tell me if this is a good free antivirus?).

my last iption would be to send my pc to an old security copy from before google+ update, and see if anything i directly or indirectly downloaded it harmed it, i downloaded a program when this problem occured which was PFportchecker.

my specs
CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3330 CPU @ 3.00GHz

CPU Speed: 3.0 GHz

RAM: 4.0 GB

Video Card: GeForce GT 640

attributes of my video card:
Pixel Shader version: 5.0
Vertex Shader version: 5.0
Dedicated Video RAM: 2.0 GB

Sound Card: Realtek High Definition Audio

my pc has windows 7 64 bits, i think its ultimate.

i use google chrome with this extensions:

AdBlock 2.6.14
inhabilitacion Google Analytics 1
RealPlayer HTML5Video Downloader Extension 1.5
SteamGifts Plus Alternative 1.0
TubeSaver-16 1.25.17

ps: i dont know if this is the right forum section to ask, but there isnt seem to be one better for this answer, so i chosed this one.

Do you have a valid gmail account if so, log into it, then try to access youtube and watch something. Report back. Will explain depending on your results.

Well this may have something to do with the recent changes that schmoogle implemented. People MUST have a schmoogle+ account to comment and interact with youtube. It is a ploy designed to get more people on shmoogle+ because they can't compete fairly with facebook and other twitter and other social ventures. I think the best thing to do is to wait and see how this plays out. I know its not the answer you are seeking but this is just my suspicion. In the meanwhile you could get a tool called CCleaner - PC Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download
The free version and use it to clean your browser of such things as cookies and cache, I will include a picture to show you which settings to apply. It may or may not help. Press Analyze at the bottom then Clean . You must have Firefox turned off while you do this. CCleaner also works the same way with Chrome browser.

I noticed you said you use Chrome, but you may give Firefox a try to see if it works with youtube. If Firefox works, I promise to help and try to get your Chrome working too ok? You can always delete firefox later. Oh and one more thing, when you install firefox, before doing any browsing on it, install these extensions : Adblock plus, Noscript, Adblock plus popup addon. Then go log into your gmail from firefox, and then go to youtube and try to watch something. Report back. I am always here.

Where to get your firefox and extensions:

Firefox - https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/new/
(Install firefox first, then using firefox, go to the following links and install them.)

Noscript- https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...ddon/noscript/
Adblock Plus - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...******/?src=ss
Adblock Plus Popup Addon - https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/fir...-addon/?src=ss

Have you tried, clearing the DNS Resolver Cache? Open a Command Prompt and type:

Code:
ipconfig /flushdns
Why do you run registry cleaners and DLL Fixer? Programs like those just cause further problems. I'll remove the Port Checker program too.
