Windows 7: You Tube Display Problem?

I have saved these files but do they refer to the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of IE9 or the 32 bit and 64 bit versions of Win 7. I am using Win 7 64 bit but I have both IE9 32 bit and 64 bit on the computer with the 32 bit version set as default. If they are 32 and 64 bit versions of IE9 presumably I will need to install both?

I'm thinking its a Flash problem, Youtube can use HTML5 to replace Flash.
Go to YouTube - Broadcast Yourself. & join the trial then try a couple of videos, if they play ok try uninstaling Flash.

It might have something to do with cookies try CCleaner - Optimization and Cleaning - Free Download

To delete IE9 & revert back to IE8 go to the Start search box & enter view installed updates
scroll down to the Microsoft Windows section & delete IE9 , you'll auto get IE8 back on a restart.

If none of the above work I think you're screwed maybe the best option would be to ditch IE & use a better browser.

If I remember correctly it will install both if you are on x64.

I reverted to IE8 and that didn't make any difference so I went to reinstate IE9 ( I have done this before without any problem) This time IE9 would not install. I read the help and had another go it still wouldn't install and the whole thing froze and I noticed that I was using 98% memeory (8K MBytes)!!! I crashed the beast and did a System Restore. All now seems to be well

I think the time has come to accept there is some problem with the You Tube display and leave it alone.

Thanks for all your input.

Judesman, (Page 1)

You are the only person I have found on the Internet to even mention this situation. I see no one had any solution.

I was running Windows 7 Home Premium and just upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate. The first thing I noticed was in going back to a YouTube video that showed how to access "Windows Seven Anytime", to upgrade, it looked different all of a sudden. It looked exactly like your picture. It looks like the entire YouTube page was in letterbox.

I did not like it one bit. I could not find an answer by searching so I tried to figure it out myself.

I am using Mozilla Firefox as my default browser and was so before upgrading. After trying many things, I looked into firefox addons. Sure enough I found that my Windows Seven Ultimate upgrade put an" add-on" under "plug-ins" in Firefox called "Windows Presentation Foundation". I disabled it in Mozilla Firefox/tools/add-on's/plug-in's. Now YouTube looks normal.

If your default browser was Microsoft Explorer, look under add-on's for this plug-in, and either disable or remove it.

Hope this helps anyone else out there.

Thank you arcangelw your input is appreciated.

I haven't been into YouTube since I decided to stop trying to find a solution because of the problems re-installing IE9. I don't have Windows Presentation Foundation in either Firefox or IE9. However I have just opened a YouTube video and everything is as it should be. I don't understand any of it. Compare the attached with the first image I posted.

Many thanks for your help.

Glad it's sorted. I guess we just put it down to one of those things.
