Every time i get on you tube it says 400 bad request


Hi,

If we talk about 400 bad request error, read the meaning of the same :-

http://www.checkupdown.com/status/E400.html

There might be several reasons :-

1. There server is down at the time when you try to access youtube.
2. Your internet browser might be at fault.
3. Your internet connection might be at fault.
4. Miscellaneous etc.

Now, as you informed me that you are unable to view youtube. Is that always or sometimes?

If everytime, there is an issue from your end.

Try to remove cookies from your browser. Go to tools on the top of our browser>Internet connection

You need to remove all the cookies and then restart your system and check.

If you are using Firefox and windows Vista operating system , check the link below :-

http://www.vistax64.com/tutorials/216740-firefox-minefield-fix-400-bad-request-youtube-cookie-error.html

General procedure to remove cookies :-

> 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

Mozilla Firefox
> Tools > Clear Private Data
(x) Browsing History
