    Lately I've been experiencing alot of crashes in both firefox and ie. I've noticed it happens whenever I'm using a facebook app that uses flash. All of my other time online seems to be ok. I've tried uninstalling/re-installing flash player on both browsers and nothing changed.

    I've run:
    SpyBot S&D - no results
    Adaware - no results
    F-Secure - no viruses
    Malwarebytes - no results
    Memtest (just because) - passed

    I'm running Vista 32bit
    Firefox 3.6.3
    IE 8 8.0.6001.18904

    Are your browsers still crashing after booting into Safe Mode with Networking?

    If not, try a Clean Boot.

    Does your computer crash (BSOD) or only your browsers?

    Just my browsers. Aside from the browser issue, I don't have any issues with my computer.

    On a side note. My wife uses her laptop and doesn't have any issues with either browser. Kinda rules out my router.

    My java is up to date as of yesterday. IE has no addons and I've already disabled all of the addons in firefox, to no avail.

    Everything is up to date as of this posting and the crashing continues.

    @peck1234. I've already set IE to default settings and it didn't solve the problem
