    IE9 (& other browsers) trouble finding YouTube

    In IE9 (32bit?) I can not get to YouTube.com website. I get the message "Webpage cannot be found" and on the rare occassion I do get the website, the webpage is in the htm text format with the graphics "x"ed out. This is also happening with FireFox and Chrome. On a website that has a YouTube.com page link and I go to that webpage, the graphics (pictures) are blank and "x"ed out.

    I am at a loss as to what is causing this. I have reset IE9 but the problem persist. I am yet to tackle FireFox or Chrome, hoping that solving IE9 will help me solve them.

    Does anyone have any suggestions or info that could shed some light on this problem? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    You might look in Internet Options, Advanced tab under multimedia. Make sure Show placeholders is not checked.

    Ted, thanks for the suggestion. "Show image download placeholders" was not checked.

    Are the sites you are having problems with all related to You Tube? Or are you having problems with other sites you use or visit? Perhaps these few sites have problems with the newer versions of the browsers.

    As far as I can make out, it is YouTube. All other sites I have visited work fine.

    Not sure then, the few times I visited YouTube things seemed ok, but I do not go there much. Perhaps the sites you went to had problems. Don't have any other ideas. Sorry

    If this is a work PC, the company may have blocked access to You Tube.

    Joe - I am not sure. I only go to youtube when I am researching something and I haven't been researching anything lately.

    Ted - I think I have narrowed the problem to the new/latest Flash Player. The reason I say this is because some other websites I go to have a error msg like - you need the latest flash player.

    When I successfully solve my problem, I will post how I solved it. Please keep any idea or suggestions coming.

    thanks and regards

    Flash problems can cause some unusual symptoms. I would uninstall the present flash before installing the latest flash.

    I always uninstall old version before installing the new version of any app I load on the computer. I also use a registry cleaner.

    This is what I done so far:

    I have a Dell XPS Studio 435T/9000 Desktop with Intel Corei7 CPU and 6GB RAM. The operating system is Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit SP1 with IE9 32bit. Graphics Card is a ATI Radeon HD 4800 Series. Win 7, IE9 and graphic card have all have been updated.

    My problem is that some websites cannot display flashcontent, or displays the webpage in an HTM text format, or cannot find thewebsite (YouTube) at all.

    My attempts to solve the problem thus far have proved futile. I have:




    • Updated graphic/display driver.
    • Downloaded and installed Adobe Flash Player's latestversion 10.3.181.14. Have installed and uninstalled it several times.
    • ResetIE9 several times.
    • Enabled/Disabled- "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering" - feature several times.
    • Runmalware scans - no virus found.
    • UninstalledIE9 and installed IE8. Adobe Flash Player would work but website YouTube would not display properly. Either website not found or displayed in HTM text format.
    • Re-installedIE9. Received error msg when websites trying to display Adobe Flash Player(latest version). Again YouTube would display in HTM text format or page notfound.
    I have exhausted my limited knowledge of Windows 7 and IE9 in trying to solve this problem. I am hopingsomeone out there that can help me solve this problem.

    Thanks and regards

    Have you enabled any content blocking or ActiveX filtering with IE9?
