Check the following file:
host
It is located in the following folder:
c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc

You will have to use notepad to open it up.

See if you can have an entry for youtube and any other websites. These entries probably came from some malicious software. Delete these them. Make sure you are running virus protection software with some type of anti spyware software.

It won't like me on my account or watch any videos on Youtube


If "your browser sent a request that this server could not understand"
and "size of request header field exceeds server limit", your request
is a bad or oversized cookie. (The same thing is true for "Error 400").

For some very strange reason, it seems 9 of
10 Bad Request messages implicate Firefox.

Simply delete your "Cookies" and everything
will be okay. Don't worry about erasing them;
nothing bad will happen. You won't lose your
internet browser's "Bookmarks" or "Favorites".
The worst thing that could happen is you will
be asked to retype your username/password
when you return to YouTube and some other
websites -- that's all.

As you're dumping your cookies, you should
also erase all your "Temporary Internet Files"
and "History". This will render your computer
totally "fresh" in YouTube's eyes. It would be
best if you shutdown / reboot after doing this:

Internet Explorer 6:
> Tools > Internet Options
> Delete Cookies > OK
> Delete Files > OK
> Clear History > Yes
> OK

Internet Explorer 7:
> Tools > Internet Options > Delete...
> Delete files > Yes
> Delete cookies > OK
> Delete history > OK
> Close (browsing history window)
> OK

Peace,
B

Why does my youtube keep saying Bad Request when I get on????????


Sounds like you've done one of three things. 1. You've got a bad cookie somewhere and should maybe consider deleting all your cookies. 2. You've changed your internet settings in internet explorer and changed something about the way they handle hyperlinks. 3. You have a virus, spybot or malware problem. I've never clicked on a hyperlink that it says "Bad Request". I doubt that it's option #1 so try opening internet explorer, go to Tools go to Internet Options and go to the Advanced tab. Tell it to Restore Advanced Settings and if that doesn't work, return to same place and click on the Reset option.

My youtube isnt working


Clear all private data cookies etc first then retry. My Firefox does this from time to time until I clear the private data for that session. This needs to be done by hand in the tools menu as the auto clean up usually misses stuff that is causing this.

you should block the messages they typed but don't block youtube because other people want to listen to mmusic and watch videos. Just block tha message such as bad messages.
