Hi guys,

It seems I have a recent issue of sorts. So a few days ago my Chrome browser stopped working. It keeps coming up with this "Aw, Snap!" error on every page. I do not know what the issue is for this. I tried Internet Explorer, and it crashes when I try to load anything but Google. Same result with Firefox and Opera. Safari seems to be the only browser unaffected, but I don't know what's causing all of these browsers to fail like this!

I've done a System Scan with my antivirus, and no malware/intrusions have been detected. Could you guys help me with this? I currently run an HP laptop, Windows 8, with an AMD A10-5745M APU with 8610G graphics, 8GB DDR3 RAM, and a 750GB HDD.

Hi,

I suggest you clear DNS cache.

Try clearing your DNS cache

Open an advanced command prompt

Start> In search box type cmd> Right click on cmd.exe in results above and choose Run as administrator

Type in the following, followed by enter for each

ipconfig /flushdns

Enter

ipconfig /release

Enter

ipconfig /renew

Enter

See if that helps.

If not, try the IE 64 bit and see if that works fine

Start> All Programs> Internet Explorer (64 bit)

If the 64 bit works, then try this

Start> In search box type cmd> Right click on cmd.exe in results above and choose Run as administrator

Type in the following, followed by enter

netsh winsock reset

Enter

Restart PC.
