    Hey guys,

    Don't know where to post this.

    This is really wacky.

    Anyways, I have "www.youtube.com" in my bookmarks. When I click on it, it gets redirected to "de.youtube.com", I think it is German version of youtube, can't understand the reading.

    So I type into my address bar "www.youtube.com", and again, from the address bar I get redirected to "de.youtube.com".

    What is going on?

    You must have cookies or something directing you to the .de youtube.

    try using CCleaner and clear out all your old cookies and such, this happened to me where I was directed to .uk youtube one time before.

    also delete the bookmarks and re-mark them at the correct address...
