Blocked plug-in


You didn't say what web browser you are using, so I can only provide a generic answer. Your security settings or software may be blocking a browser plugin identified as a security risk, or the browser has in some manner determined that the plugin is incompatible with a newer version of a subsidiary application (such as Flash Player). Another possibility is that the browser security asked permission of one of the users to use the plugin and that permission was denied.
Find your plugin manager (perhaps in the browser preferences menu item) and remove the offending plugin. If it isn't a security issue and you really need it, you can download a new copy the next time you hit a page that uses it. It's also possible that all plugins have been blocked. Example: Safari:Preferences... menu item > Security tab > check "Enable Plugins" in the Web Content section.

Can't login to youtube


You launch your Web browser, but your homepage has changed. You type in a Web address, but the browser sends you to a site you\'re never heard of. Whenever you try to go to a new destination, it sends you right back, sometimes covering your screen in pop-up ads. If this sounds familiar, you\'ve got a serious problem on your hands. It\'s called browser hijacking, and it\'s something you need to fix right away. What is a Browser Hijacker? b> A browser hijacker is a type of computer virus that targets your Web browser. Some hijacking programs try to make you click on bogus pop-up ads that spawn incessantly. Others are purely malicious, designed only to cause trouble. Infected browsers sometimes redirect you to pornographic websites, while others may take you to fake search engines. Even if a site looks legitimate, if you didn\'t tell your browser to go there, don\'t click on anything. b> How Did I Get Hijacked? b> Browser hijackers disguise themselves in various ways. Pop-up ads are a common infection point for browser hijackers, which is why virtually all Web browsers come with aggressive pop-up blocking protection. Ads promising free electronics or large cash prizes are common sources of browser hijackers as well. Some hijackers hitch a ride on bogus software downloads or hyperlinks. In the future, don\'t download files from unknown sources, and don\'t click on any ads that sound too good to be true. Fake Security Software b> If your browser issues are accompanied by security pop-ups from a desktop security program, be careful. Some current browser hijackers masquerade as security software, as well as infecting your browser. These programs are particularly dangerous, as they often camouflage themselves to look like a legitimate software program. Use your common sense before clicking on a security alert. If the security program is not one that you have installed or that you have ever seen before, or if there are spelling errors within the alert, don\'t touch it. b> How To Get Rid of a Hijacker b> Browser hijackers can usually be sorted out by running a full system scan with your anti-virus software. Make sure that your anti-virus software is up to date before running your scan. Even after the virus is removed, you may need to reset some of your browser settings, particularly your homepage. If the browser hijacker made a mess of your settings, it may be faster for you to perform a clean reinstall of your browser software.

A YouTube account makes it possible to upload and share videos and to create customized pages. Creating a YouTube account is nearly effortless and requires only an email address, a password and a username. If you have different usernames and passwords for different websites, it can be easy to forget just what combination unlocks your YouTube account. Fortunately, you can recover your YouTube login information even if you can\'t remember your username. Hope this helps.

Us.data.toolbar.yahoo.com:443 invalid security cirtificate iwant valid security cirtificate


Unless you set your browser up for high security, this certificate is bogus. Rarely does a security certificate notice appear on yahoo without having set your browser up for high security.
Lower your security if it set to high and see if the message disappears. If your browser security is set to normal, then this is a bogus certificate for a bogus yahoo site.

I am not getting open my yahoo email.


hello,

it's a issue on your web browser.

The exact reason is: a secured website ( https ) could not be opened, if a browser's certificate fails.

check your browser's version or update to latest version.


or

just add an exception on your web browser's security page. it's a simple option to take over to that website.

When I type in my browser www.ebay.com it goes to the home page. When I hit the sign in page it says: problem with website security certificate. the security presented by this website has expired or is not...


1. try using this address https://signin.ebay.com
2. check you system date, if it's not right than your browser would think that the security certificate is expired
3. i recommend updating your browser and/or using the latest Mozilla Firefox browser http://firefox.com/
