    IE11 - Youtube not responding....

    Hello All,

    I hope to present you with a problem that can be solved. This problem has been going on for awhile.

    I like to stick to using IE11 more compare to Firefox and even more so with Chrome. Every time I access a Youtube Link the page freezes and a message at the bottom would say youtube is not responding. In both metro and desktop IE, The metro one would say Youtube is taking a long time to run a script. If I wait for like a 30 seconds to a 1 minute, the video will run normally and smooth.

    This also happens once in awhile on Firefox but Chrome has no problems.

    I think I updated all the browsers and plugins when possible. The Nvidia driver is the latest using the auto update thing. I have the following GeForce 340.52 driver:

    Have you tried with flash disabled ?
    ie11 really does not need it on youtube,
    Gear symbol/ Manage add-ons/ disable and close,
    Hit the F5 key if already on youtube,

    Thanks TrashZone,

    I did some searching about a more user friendly way of dealing with what you mentioned. so I looked in some forums and found about ActiveX filtering which shuts down flash on sites and I can then enable flash on a per site basis.
