Youtube Crashing All Web Browsers

Hey folks,

For some strange reason, Youtube has started to mess up. Whenever I play a - sorry, TRY to play a video, all the Youtube video window shows is a green screen and after about 2 seconds, crashes the web browser. I use Firefox, but I've tried it on IE and Chrome and I'm getting the same results.

Any advice?

Try this ....:
Use Revo uninstaller to uninstall flash player + all plug in for fire fox and chrome ..
Reboot .... use ccleaner to clean all trash and broken registries ...
Install flash player back ......should be OK by then ....
If not ....run full scan of Malwarebyte in SAFE MODE ...just to make sure ..

I got the same issue yesterday but a simple Flash reinstall and a PC reboot cured it

Well I just tried removing Flash with Revo and reinstalling it, and unfortunately that didn't cure it. And I reinstalled and rebooted the PC as you suggested, but that didn't resolve the problem either.

Is there anything else I can try?

Use Ccleaner to clean out cache and invalid registies ...
if doesn't work then try to.....downgrade the Flash player ....
(You must reboot when install or uninstall to make sure .)
Go to Oldversion.com ..look for flash player 9 or older ..."You can google it"
see if it helps ...
