For all those looking for an answer, this just happened to me and here's how I fixed it.

This to me sounds like more of a virus (malware), I'd run your anti-virus protection and Malwarebytes Anti-malware. If it finds nothing, there are two other things I can think of... Make sure your computer's clock is set to your timezone and that's it's got the right time. Reset your Internet.

I have had the same issue as well on different installations. As philosophickle said in his answer, try setting it through the control panel (+1). That has worked for me.

From what I know, Chrome comes with its own Flash-gizmo as a plugin and therefore you don't even really need the standalone version of Flash on your machine. Now I can't speak the same about MS Edge as I have no idea. Now if the plugin for Chrome fails, disable it and see what happens (many YouTube videos are HTML5 based and probably don't need Flash). If ...
