    I recently started up IE7 the other day...I went to youtube's home page and then played a video. But when the browser was loading it supposedly crashed ( I think) or it just closed and it did not gave me an error message....I find it wierd because its supposed to give me an error message...??

    So I tried again...And gave me the same flaw results...

    I would really appreciate the help:)

    i was having a similar problem regarding you tube on 3 different browsers, which i have now solved. i was following a thread called "cant download adobe flash player" and after realising that i might have problems with the flash player and shockwave, i decided to follow the uinstall recommended and re install both flash and shockwave .
    my thread is quite recent as is the other one i mentioned,so finding it is easy enough.
    you tube is now running, with no problems on all browsers.
    of course your problem might be something different but maybe this could help.
    as the name suggests i am no expert but gradually picking pieces of knowledge up.
    good luck
