    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?

    Claudia

    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?
