    I use Chrome Browser, Windows XP machine.

    I watch a you tube video and it goes for about 3 seconds and then stops. It stops like it is buffereing. However, it never starts back? Not knowing too much about all of this. I made sure I had the latest Java version.

    Is this a common thing that can be fixed? Or do you think virus?

    Thank You,
    Michael

    Actually, the Adobe Flash Player is the one that needs to be up-to-date.

    Select About Google Chrome under the Tools menu to verify that your Chrome browser is up-to-date. (The wrench icon near the Chrome address bar indicates the Tools menu.)

    Phantom010,
    Indeed it was Adobe Flash Player that needed updated. I had the current version for IE, but I needed to download the version for all other browsers.

    Thank You for your help!
