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:
NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce 340.52 Driver WHQL

Hi,
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,
Cheers.

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.

Use ActiveX filtering - Windows Help

Well if its only for youtube, I guess using Flash is not necessary at all since it could lead to the vulnerable.
