HI,I have a problem with youtube videos being blocked i got to where it blinks on then off but will not continue showing video same problem with homepage videos.
I think my problems started when clicked on a ADOBE FLASH PLAYER UPDATE and awhile after that i thought i saw something about a bogus flash player download,also i have a blinking hour glass along side my mouse pointer and PC locks up off and on randomly any ideas would be appreciated,thanks

What is your PC specs, OS and browser?

First thing I would do is a virus scan and uninstall all instances of flash player and reinstall from the adobe website.

Well i removed ADOBE and reinstalled it and also removed an extension in F/F called DOWNLOAD HELPER rebooted my PC WENT YOUTUBE.COM and tried to play a video no such luck and still have that infamous blinking hour glass along side mouse pointer that nobody seems to know anything about.
I have a baseball bat in a locked cabinet and lucky for my PC i misplaced the key to it.
This blinking hour glass has got to be imbibed in a program somewhere inside PC,could it be in an area like the root kit where most people usually do not venture much or should not just thought.

At times, Flash issues are very tough to fix. Install and run Malwarebytes to do a spyware search. Install it, update it, then reboot and start the system in Safe Mode, run a Full scan with Malwarebytes.

Uninstall all Flash again, install it from www.adobe.com

If that does not fix it, try a different browser. The last resort is a full Windows re-installation unless you can do a system restore to a point before the issue happened.

HI,hang-the-9,I cheated and went to I.E. had download new version of FLASH PLAYER to get youtube to work but for now it is working in I.E.
I figured out how to transfer all of my bookmarks to I.E., now will see if I can also transfer all of my UN&PW to I.E. that would make easier to use I.E.
My next thing I probably will do is uninstall F/F and reinstall F/F,that silly blinking hour glass is gone for now but we will see what happens with it.

That's the correct way of sorting out this Flash issue. I've dealt with it a few times and either had to do a full rebuild, use a different browser, or the issue fixed itself with another Flash update they put out. I've never been able to fix a broken Flash browser by just uninstalling and re-installing it in the same browser.
