Windows 7: All browsers repeated crash - Windows 7 32 bit.

All browsers repeated crash - Windows 7 32 bit.

One of my PC's has over the last week started to crash whenever a browser is called up (IE + Chrome). This has developed until it crashes every time I go to Google Chrome especially
Have done all the usual checks (I think) to no avail - which included TCP/IP stack repair options for Win7.

Two other Pc's 1x XP - 1x Win7 on the same network are unaffected. It seems that the 'rogue' pc runs normally in every other respect
AV and malware checks done - dll re registered the list goes on, but no success to date

Your valued suggestions would be very welcome.
Cheers

Hi ThrashZone
many thanks for your thoughts - much appreciated. I had in fact done all that you suggested - nevertheless I did it again. Still regretably the same!

Later (at a point of failure) a message flashed up to say that the AMD graphics driver had stopped and was recovering. On this particular PC I have on board ATI/AMD graphics. I have NEVER liked ati/amd graphics, and for some time thought it was somehow 'lacking'. I decided to re install the whole gigabyte M/B driver set, and after a lot of frustration eventually managed to get the relevant driver installed and working. During the complete installation process, the opportunity to update the bios was taken. This generated a vast improvement, and has possibly helped the original situation.
The other area I looked at was the effect of eset smart security 8 on the system - with the firewall disabled I had a period when all was well. Tomorrow I will be looking at this aspect a little closer. I note that the vender (Eset) 'is managing these settings'.
There is a PCIe slot on this motherboard - so I am tempted to obtain and fit a nvidia graphics card, and get rid of the ati/amd driver uncertainties. I have never had any issues with nvidia cards or software.
I will keep all informed - but again thanks for your input.
Cheers

In all honestly, you need to install Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. 64BIT is more stable over 32bit on any OS. That would solved all your problems. But good luck.

What video card are you using and what drivers are you using, specifically.

That would be a good idea NVidia rules
4th of July sells are close Newegg and Amazon are good places to monitor

Did you try Safe Mode with Networking yet?

After Safe Mode and working through ESET possibility if still is not fixed, you can try Download Complete Internet Repair - MajorGeeks

Thanks for your replies guys

AddRam,
this pc has a gigabyte M/B with on-board graphics. AMD Radeon HD8470D. Driver is 14.301.1001.0 (dated 15-9-14)

GMCauchemar,
many would disagree with your comment/suggestion. Many of us elected to stay with 32 bit in order that we could continue to use some of our older software. Millions of users out there with 32 bit systems enjoy total stability. 64bit is not the answer to all problems!
Meanwhile keep the suggestions coming chaps. This is such a widespread problem - surely a fix has been identified and recorded.
PS ran PC with eset ss8 turned off, but this made no difference.

I try to remember that their my be more than one problem.

Because one of your problems affects one or more of your browsers it could help to run AdwCleaner from Bleeping Computer.

Well what I believe he was referring to mostly is 32 bit has limited ram available 3gb to be exact and todays browsers are very resource "needy" to be faster
Todays browsers are making up for that by having flat designs but people often use browser add-ons = theme add-ons to sweeten the appearance of the flat designs which take up more resources

Then you get to the run of the mill browser add-ons which people also go a little nutty on cramming dozens of silly add-ons to do very little but also take up even more resources

So 64 bit gives you the ability to use more ram 4 to 8-16... thus making 64 bit superior.
Most 32 bit applications will still work with 64 bit but the developer does need to keep up with the times because they are ever changing.
