You Tube Video viewing not working properly
Hello,

A few days ago I downloaded the AVG virus protection onto my computer and I used some of the tools they had to get rid of duplicate files, etc. Now I notice that when I go to YouTube to try to view a video, it just keeps having that little circular thing spinning around, buffering the videos all throughout the video which makes it where I can hardly watch a video now. I am not sure if its that there are some missing components on my computer, but just guessing thats the problem.

Anyway, so I tried doing a System Restore on my computer to set it back a month and that didnt work.

I also tried uninstallinging and re-installing the Adobe FlashPlayer and that doesnt work. I did notice thats acting strange because I go to my Add/Remove Programs and uninstall it then try to reinstall it. It acts as if it refuses to install it all the way, then when I go to the Add/Remove Programs its there again. Making it where I cannot install it because it says its already there but it seems like its not really installed.

I also tried redownloading RealPlayer and also Windows MultiMedia just in case there might be some missing components from that that is causing the problem.

I am pretty much Computer Illiterate so I dont really know what to do.

Can anybody help me with this problem please?

Try using the Flash Player Uninstaller found here: http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/141/tn_14157.html

Then reinstall it and see if that works.

D'oh! How about a different uninstaller program such as Revo? http://www.revouninstaller.com/revo_..._download.html

contus video

Okay but will this make it where when I go to youtube I can just click on a video and it will play it properly. Or will I have to DOWNLOAD the video then open the player and watch it each time.

Because I can already do that, download the videos and play it on my Window Media Player.

That post was spam. We've removed it. I take it you are still having problems? Revo couldn't remove Flash?
