    ESET Smart Security is blocking youtube and metacafe in FF and in IE. Chrome opens normally youtube and metacafe.

    I already deleted FF and IE rules and I'm using Interactive firewall mode.
    But those video sites still don't open.

    When I disable SS firewall youtube and metacafe open in FF and IE.

    Thanks!

    Could you provide a screenshot of what you're seeing when browsing to youtube?

    It's a pretty small thumbnail, I can't seem to zoom it. But from glance it seems the actual connection is being interrupted. When ESET blocks a site it shows a big red warning. Could you post a readable screenshot so we can see the error?

    Thanks, unfortunately I can't read your language so I can't make sense of the error. Does it translate to this?

    Yes, that's the correct translation.

    Could you browse to here:
    C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\DRIVERS\ETC

    Open up the files "HOSTS" with wordpad/notepad and tell me the contents? Is youtube mentioned there?

    hosts:

    # This is a sample HOSTS file used by Microsoft TCP/IP for Windows.
    #
    # This file contains the mappings of IP addresses to host names. Each
    # entry should be kept on an individual line. The IP address should
    # be placed in the first column followed by the corresponding host name.
    # The IP address and the host name should be separated by at least one
    # space.
    #
    # Additionally, comments (such as these) may be inserted on individual
    # lines or following the machine name denoted by a '#' symbol.
    #
    # For example:
    #
    # 102.54.94.97 rhino.acme.com # source server
    # 38.25.63.10 x.acme.com # x client host

    # localhost name resolution is handle within DNS itself.
    # 127.0.0.1 localhost
    # ::1 localhost

    It doesn't have any references to youtube nor metacafe.

    Problem solved. I'm using speedbit video accelerator and I accidentally blocked its access to internet.
