I new so forgive if this is the wrong forum or such.

I'm suddenly not able to connect to Youtube. I checked on Chrome, Firefox, IE, and Safari, none connect. I was watching a video then went to a new one and got an error message; "Cannot connect to webpage". DNS Error. It's only YouTube.

I flushed (?) the DNS, reset IP with command prompt, checked C:Windows/Systems32/etc. Hosts, nothing wrong there according to another post on here. Cleared cache also.

I haven't updated or changed anything in the last 4 days, I checked the proxy settings and they're also fine, as are my firewalls. I'm currently running Adwcleaner, Anti-Malwarebytes and HitmanPro to see if its a virus problem but I don't think it is... Any help is very much appreciated.
