First thing to do: look at the event log of your PC to see more on what went wrong. Post your findings.

Also tell more on what happens: does the video crash, does quicktime crash, does the PC crash? Blue screen of death? What error number?

Also tell something about your hardware and OS.

In reply to: crash info tells you how to disable automatic reboot after a BSOD, so you've got time to study it. But the info is in the event log also.

Video's on youtube are flash. That's not related to quicktime. You don't give any information about that. And it's not even sure that the error you tell about is related to this crash.

All I can say at the moment;
It seems you're using IE to view youtube. What happens if you use Firefox or Chrome?

im not sure how to really put it, when im watching videos on youtube it crashes, when im watching anything on quick time it crashes...basically anything that it has to do with video may it be flash and something else like quick crashes...

even in firefox in chrome it crashes..i have both browsers and when i try to run them they dont even pull up..i even tried to unistall and reinstall again and it crashes..

You're not clear: either they run (and crash) or they don't even pull up (but then they don't crash either).

But if the same troubles with video arise over different browsers it's not the browser that is the problem, but the machine. Things to try:
- update the driver for the video card
- check that it's OK in Device Manager
- run dxdiag to see what it says about the video

Not sure to help. It could be any other problem with Windows and it could be an isssue with the hardware.

Try another browser.

Many forget to try another browser to narrow down if it's the machine or the browser.
