Windows 7: Links not working for videos, etc.

Links not working for videos, etc.

I have HP desktop Win 7 64 bit. Im having trouble when clicking on links to news stories and videos, the link would work and appear for half a second then the page would go white for about 40 to 60 seconds, then the story or video would work! Now the links wont work on YouTube, there is just a white page, it doesnt matter how long I wait the video wont appear? If I click on the link it will appear in the address bar, I can press enter on my keyboard and it will work from there. I have restored my system back a few days and re-installed Firefox 58.1 and run sfc/scannow. I dont know what to do next, any ideas anyone? P.S I havent installed anything , I just did a normal CCcleaning just before the YouTube links stopped working?

I turned the computer on this morning and everthing is OK and back to normal? If it was YouTube doing maintenance or whatever I wouldve thought they would notify me? I didnt think to use another browser at the time but thanks for that. So this is tentatively solved for now, I hope? lol
