    I'm having a hell of a problem connecting to YouTube, it's probably simple but I've checked everything I can think of and nothing, I was using IE7 when this happened, I upgraded to IE8 and still the same, sometimes I can get the first page then when I move on I get the blank page, if I reverse out of the page I get the listing of " http internal server error 1.1" something like that or very close to the message, my other laptop has no problem connecting to YouTube, both computers have Eset Smart Security Suite, I checked the settings on affected computer and they look fine, I even reset everything to default just be sure, AV and Spyware check done and is clean, I thought it could be a dns thing but the other computer connects fine, I have checked almost everything but out of frustration, I'm sure I overlooked something, I checked the router and can't find anything.
    Anybody have any ideas, it would be most appreciated.
    Affected computer, Vista Ultimate x64, Eset Smart Security IE8
    Unaffected computer Vista Ultimate x64 Eset Smart Security IE8
    Thanks

    Does this problem also occur on other browsers on THAT system? Not other computers. Try Firefox or Chrome and see if you have that problem.

    Thanks for the fast response McGrady: Yes this problem is only on one computer, the other computer with IE8 works just fine with YouTube.
    I must have done something somewhere and I cant track it down.

    Ok Mcgrady you got me on this one, I cleared the cookies before with CC cleaner, but the YouTube cookie was on my save file so it didnt delete, turns out the youtube cookie was the problem, after a manual delete of the youtube cookie, I got a new cookie and all is fine, so the cookie was the problem, yes I am embarrassed but things like this can happen.
    Rep add to you Mcgrady.
