  •  

    After installing Windows Live OneCare, I have not been able to watch videos on youtube. To test this I turned off my firewall and then I was able to watch them again. I have a 100.0 Mbps connection (cable modem) and my internet is still as fast as it was. Appreciate any help that anyone can offer. Thanks

  • I've never had problems watching videos on YouTube with the OneCare firewall on multiple PCs. Since turning off the firewall resolves it for you, though, I wonder if perhaps the Adobe Flash Player plug-in may be blocked in your firewall settings. If you are unable to resolve this by allowing the Flash Player (which should have been allowed without your approval unless you've set the firewall to always prompt for every application), I recommend that you contact support.
