The problem is most likely with adobe flash player on your computer. Try updating your flash program.

http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/

Were youtube and these other sites working before and suddenly quit? There was an adobe flash update in the past few weeks which caused flash NOT to work properly on systems which were working fine. I had to uninstall the updated version, go back to the previous and my problem was solved. However, I do believe adobe has fixed the problem, so I would try updating flash first. Goodluck

Here is another possibility, what browser are you using?

Firefox has its own flash plug in (as does chrome), and adobe update is the stand alone flash version, sometimes if the browser has both pluggins installed it will not work and you disable the built in flash and run on the stand alone, this is done in the browser settings. The Real player pluggin also been causing issues, try disabling that pluggin if you have it. If all else fails try uninstalling current flash, go to flash archives and download the older version, but do not let it update automatically. Suffice to say, you are not the only one having this problem. If you tell me what browser you use I can find instructions for doing these things.

Another idea:

Uninstall Flash Player using this procedure:
http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player...

Restart computer then, if you are using IE, go here to get the "full download" flash file (green icon top right):
http://www.filehippo.com/download_f...
Save the file rather than running it. Go to the file and double click it to do the install.

If you are using any other browser then use the flash file at this link instead:
http://www.filehippo.com/download_f...

If you are using two browsers then you need to do it for each of them (IE and Non-IE links above).

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Have you any "toolbars" in situ such as Google (in fact anything Google apart from their home page and using their search engine)? I have known these interfere with ActiveX and cause issues with Flash.

Nothing lost running your AV scans, also running MalwareBytes freebie using this download (green icon top right):

I don't really think this a virus but they can do all sorts of damage.
