Windows 7: Every browser I use crashes

Browser crashes

Okay - flash player issues ruled out then!

Well this is a bit of a guess really but since you're using Chrome try typing this into the Chrome address bar:

chrome://conflicts/

If any problems are shown would you post details?

That software hasn't been updated - there is an altenative "System Ninja" but I wouldn't recommend it. I do use it myself sometimes but it really does require inspecting every file that it wants to remove and adding many entries to an exclusion list.

If you just want to check how many versions of flash player and chrome you've got lurking around on your hard drive you could run a scan with the software mentioned in this post.
I've sent you a PM with the direct download link.

Note: For old chrome versions click the "+" sign to expand the entry and get the file location for the old versions then manually delete them. Do not delete the current version of chrome.


TrashZone will be able to help with your other questions but just run a scan and fix any Chrome or Flash Player problems found. If there are any other problems with outdated software - ignore them and post details.
thanks.

Tried that. Chrome showed no conflicts detected. Thank you though.

I'd say review this post again and seriously think of doing it,
Every browser I use crashes
Ok. I still think this isn't a memory issue though. My bosses computer is running on windows, xp, has only 1.99gb of ram,(which is less ram than mine) and is a older computer than mine. And he just has windows defender too. I used his computer to do a test on the pages I visit online. All of them worked perfect, loaded fairly fast, and did not crash,freeze, or knock out the internet signal!
I think its something else other than memory. Would you have any other suggestions?
Also, I recently noticed some other things going on with my computer. Icons disappear on their own, tabs/windows(online) open/close on their own. I also completely reformatted my computer 2 days ago. The computers acting very strange.

Comparing Windows XP with Windows 7 is not wise in my opinion.

Apples and Oranges.

In win-7 you need MSE Microsoft Security Essentials,
Use Both of the Links in AddRam's post and download Both of them,
Scan with Both of them.

Fair enough. But I'm still left with the question as to why 1.99gb ram works better than my 2.0 gb computer. I think its a virus or hardware issue. We shall soon find out either way. Thanks for your feedback.

Ok. So download malware bytes and Microsoft security essentials and scan with both? Will I need to uninstall defender then? thanks

Windows Defender that comes installed with Windows 7 just need to be turned off not uninstalled.

When you install MSE it should turn off Defender.

You are asking for some magic wan to fix your computer without adding more ram.
Their is only so much you can do with the ram you have and the things you are trying to do.

You may have more than one problem also.
