youtube won't play.

hi there.

something really strange is happening. everytime i try to play a youtube video it'll play for only 2 seconds and then get stuck!!!
even if i wait for it to buffer i'll hit play again and it'll only play for another 2 seconds! this is very weird.

i can play songs from 'my music' and films that i have in 'my videos', its just youtube, yet yesterday it was fine.

any ideas on this please?

free software "speebit" helps speed up download videos click here

also to note while i was watching youtube [japanes sites] windows defender picked up a trojan, you might have one too.

I too have been having trouble with Kaspersky in the background when Youtube is playing (or not as is the case).. After lots of fiddling and tweaking, I have found that if you set the 'Web Traffic' in the Anti-Malware to 'Low' you can start watching again. I tried it at various levels on the best protection it can offer is the Low setting. Better than turning it off all together. It must have been something the boffins at Kaspersky put in one of there updates because Youtube played with no probs before last week.. Hope this works for you I know how frustrating this can be. Let me know Thanks Mark
