It has this blocked--Java Deployment Toolkit (click-to-play) has been blocked for your protection--
[This have been known as vulnerable. Use with caution]
And then it shows Java (TM) Platform SE 7 U55 10.55.2.14 --with "Ask to Activate"--
Should it be on "Always Activate" instead?
Only about 0.3% to 0.5% of sites use Java, so if you don't need it uninstall it. I would activate it though, just in case YT requires it. If it makes
no difference, I would uninstall it as it is a HUGE security hole.
If you want to try it manually update your Adobe Flash, that may help as there were some problems with the updates about a month ago.
Do you have a good cache cleaner, if not, CCleaner from Piriform is an excellent product. We recently had some malware get through that screwed up our
YT as well as ATS connections and CCleaner removed the problem quickly. More aggresive solutions might require MalwareBytes, Spybot, Stinger or TDSS
Other good programs for system maintenance and virus removal, Sophos which is a good second Virus Scanner that works even if you have AVG, MSS,
Norton, MacAfee, etc. installed, it`s a second test, like a second opinion. Auslogics Disk Defragmentor beats the crap out of the microsoft version
and looks a lot like the old Norton Speed Disk. Zone Alarm is also a good second Firewall to have in place even if you have an existing hardware NAT
firewall built into your router. Zone Alarm can stop malicious programs from sending information out of your computer and it has a lot of flexibility.
All of the programs I have mentioned have a functional FREE version on their sites.
If it comes to the point that you have to uninstall Firefox and wipe most of its traces (including the registry), you can Skype me, just set up a time
and I walk you through it. You just need to tell me what version of windows you are running on and I`ll boot up one of my client machines or
Hope this helps ;-)
