Windows 7: Can't play Youtube any more

If it wasn't for the partition deal I would agree with Gary that it wasn't on your end,
The only News I've seen was about the stand alone shockwave player update,

I know you've run hdd tests but which virus.. scanners have you run ?
You know the bests are Adwcleaner/ Malwarebytes/ Superantispyware or at least those are my preference,

I guess you are right. I first suspected that my router firewall may have something to do with it - although I had not changed anything in the router.

You are probably right there Brit; as I too have experienced issues with playing videos on youtube from time to time and i know for a fact it wasnt my system. So yea youtube must be the one with gremlins in it lol.

Speaking of Gremlins. For a couple of weeks I had another gremlin, but this time on Skydrive/Onedrive.

I place tutorials with hyperlinks in PDF format on Skydrive. Those you can open directly with the Web App and also operate the hyperlinks directly there like in this example. But during a couple of weeks after they changed to Onedrive, the hyperlinks did not work. Now all of a sudden they work again. This together with Youtube not working was a real pain. Go figure.

YouTube won't play

This appeared when I tried to watch some Newegg videos, others played fine. I clicked the link in the snip, installed Adobe Flash Player...twice with no change. Some other YT videos are the same way, some play, some won't. :confused:
