Windows 7: Firefox & Chrome

Firefox & Chrome

They both crash randomly when opening a new page sometimes it happens others it doesn't, Its getting pretty annoying because Firefox is what i love, and only IE8 doesn't crash -_- this didn't happen on my laptop with windows 7 though, which is making me think maybe I did something wrong building this computer.

any Ideas that would be causing the crashing?

Its not the lame (not responding) **** I get each browsers custom crash dialogue

Usually caused download managers, add-ons, third party applications, antivirus programs that have browser add-ons, or scan as you search - free avast works 100% for me. Sometimes monitoring programs that enhanced internet speed. Check all your programs if they are suspect take them out of startup - type "msconfig.exe" in search select startup and deselect - disable all your add-ons that you think might be the problem - basically see if you can get the browsers to work then use the process of elimination. I know firefox works ok with IE8 - not sure if the 3 would work in harmony.

I don't have any add-ons, I literally Just~ built this 2 days ago.

What are you talking about 3 working in harmony?? if you are bored you can install every browser out there.

Do a sytem restore and try adding the browsers 1 at a time, and checking the first one before adding the second - sorry to sound as though I'm trying to annoy you, but like you say its new with no other avenues really - except, well, only just thought of it - your ethernet driver maybe the problem - try updating it - if its marvell yukon go here -

Sorry thats usually the best working solution for most people, with most problems (though a lot dislike it.. even though they want an answer to their problem and it is an answer lol).

Why would you have to reburn it, you can re-use the last burned disk.
