    Thats because Google own YouTube. It uses the same username / pw, you use for Gmail. Go into your settings in Youtube. See if there's an option to kill it

    1) Go to Google.co.nz

    2) Click the options button at top right corner

    3) Click on Search Settings

    4) Scroll down to Google Instant

    3) Check the box that says "Do not use Google Instant"

    4) Click Save Preferences at bottom right.
