OS: Windows XP SP3

Today, I started having trouble accessing youtube from two windows computers - one XP and one Windows 7. Two ipods and another Windows 7 computer could access fine.

On both problem computers, I deleted cookies and rebooted the computers. I also rebooted the router. The Windows 7 machine seems fine now, and the XP machine was okay for a while, but not now.

On the XP (professional version 2002 SP3) machine I used MSCONFIG to disable all startup apps and all non-microsoft services. I ultimately returned the system to normal startup without leaving anything disabled, and strangely, there was a slight improvement.

I now can at least get to youtube, but the page loads like I'm on dialup, and then when I select a video the little wheel spins and finally displays, "An Error Occured. Please try again later."

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.
