Some problems with browsers.

I am running windows 7 32 bit. I cannot start either Chrome or IE8. The only browser that I can open is Firefox 5.0. However many times Firefox freezes and i have to close it and open Firefox again. It seems to affect some websites more than others. One is a sports message board and the other is youtube. This before I even can open a video. Thanks for you help.

For IE, download the Capt's IE Restorator tool. Run the reregister for your OS and both versions of IE. See if IE opens and works now.
