I get an error saying ''can not connect to youtube'' with both chrome and safari on a mac running leopard. I used to go on youtube everyday but then suddenly it started to not load the page and just say 'cant connect' on chrome and ''server where youtube is located is not responding'' on safari. i have tried everything from resetting the wifi and browsers and uninstalling/reinstalling java, flash everything.. Without any reason why do I suddenly get this error on this computer only using the same wifi with about 3 different computers?

Thank you so much for your help, i have a youtube channel im running that is why im so frustrated.

MacBook, Mac OS X (10.5.8)

    About Safari 5.1.7 and Leopard Security Update 2012-003

     

    Summary

    Learn about Safari 5.1.7 and Leopard Security Update 2012-003.

     

     

    Products Affected

    Mac OS X 10.5, Product Security, Safari 5.1 (Mac OS X 10.6), Safari 5.1 (OS X Lion)

     

     

    Safari 5.1.7 for OS X Lion, Safari 5.1.7 for OS X Snow Leopard, and Leopard Security Update 2012-003 disable out-of-date versions of Adobe Flash Player.

    Out-of-date versions of Adobe Flash Player do not include the latest security updates and will be disabled to help keep your Mac secure. If Safari 5.1.7 or Leopard Security Update 2012-003 detects an out-of-date version of Flash Player on your system, you will see a dialog informing you that Flash Player has been disabled. The dialog provides the option to go directly to Adobe's website, where you can download and install an updated version of Flash Player.

    Additional Information

    If you need to re-enable an out-of-date version of Flash Player, you can do the following:

        1.    Navigate to the /Library/Internet Plug-Ins (Disabled) folder.

        2.    Drag "Flash Player.plugin" into /Library/Internet Plug-Ins.

        3.    If the browser is running, quit and restart it.
