Cant open browsers

Hi, If anyone can help me: Safari, opera, flock and lunascape browsers only open once in a while. Most of the time i cant open them. Also when i do a search for facebook or craigslist, on firefox or IE, it wont open it. Sometimes when safari does work it changes the theme colors. Gotta get this resolved. THANKS!!

Hello there, have you tried to do a Malware scan? your computer may be infected.

Download this: Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware: Malwarebytes

Install it, boot into safe mode with networking (pressing F8 on BIOS) and let it run.

Last but not least. Do you have a lot of toolbars installed?

Thanks. Yea I have malbytes and i ran it and there are no infections. Over and over again. Tried Ccleaner too. Very frustrated. Sometimes i log on and safari works fine then i cant get safari to work the next time. When I do a craigs list or FB search in IE, It says cannot display.

Ok, let's go little by little.

Have you tried to uninstall ALL browsers, clean the leftovers with CCleaner and reinstalling them again? the issue seems weird, i know that Firefox is not the fastest browser when it comes to open it after a cold boot, specially if you have a lot of extensions.

But i've never heard of this, and even worse, the way you explain it. (works sometimes, colour scheme change, CL searchs not available)

OK. I got this dell inspiron last year. I think she did something. When i do search in IE or Firefox for Facebook, it says "about blank" or cannot display web page. I dont like IE so I downloaded other browsers. now they dont work
