Reset ie,
Run these scanners,
Post the scan results
Review Jacee’s instructions to run Adwcleaner here post #7,
Ignore the title of the thread,
Instant Savings App

You can use these free tools to see if they find anything,
Manually Update them before running full scans,
Try not to use your computer while the scans are running, (one at a time of course).
Uncheck the box to Activate the Free trial from the final install options,
Also use the Custom scan option not the Threat scan,
Select the drive to scan usually C,
If your really infected check the box to scan for Rootkits = this scan option will take several hours to complete,
Never use your machine while scans are running for best results,
This one is the longest up to 4 hours, the others are only about 45 minutes,

I ran Adware Cleaner and I found something related to AOL and on there and I removed them off my system and I will try to play a video on youtube again when I have a chance, I don't have time to run other ones because I do a lot of stuff on my laptop during the middle of the day

It would be nice see the results as you have them as you say some things not right because no issues here ?
usually reset is necessary after removing items,
Review you msconfig startup and services items and post them as well

ok guys I think I found the solution to my problem, yesterday I used the official flash uninstaller to uninstall all versions from Internet Explorer and Firefox and then I installed the version just for Internet Explorer and so far I have had no problems getting videos to play today from Internet Explorer

YouTube Problems
Recently I've been having trouble getting some videos to work properly. There doesn't seem to be any pattern to it, some vids load up and play okay and some vids flatly refuse to load.
