    Panos I am not as good as the others but you could try a run with this

    Emsisoft Free Emergency Kit: portable malware scanner | Free removal of Viruses,Bots, Spyware, Keyloggers and Trojans < just run the first two scans - Emergency and Command Line .

    One worth a try if nothing comes up would be this one as it will scan for power on

    Download Kaspersky Rescue Disk 10

    This is the first time I have looked at a herdprotect scan and found nothing that would indicate a severe/bad/troublesome threat.

    I do want to verify that you have the world of goo game?

    Please let me know.

    You have avg antivirus installed, is that what you are using?

    You have also created a new admin account, are the crashes still occurring since the new account was made?

    Let's move on here:

    Make sure your data is backed up either on an external hard drive or somewhere else before proceeding:

    1.) Please download and save the file TFC by Old Timer. Again, save the file to your downloads folder or your desktop. Do not run it.

    Downloading TFC

    2.) Close your programs before running this tool. TFC will close ALL open programs.

    3.) Browse to where you saved tfc. Right click on tfc.exe and choose Run As Administrator.

    4.) Click the Start button to begin the cleaning process and let it run uninterrupted to completion. When it finishes it will say total files cleaned, and the start button will be grayed out. Click exit.
    Important! If TFC prompts you to reboot, please do so immediately. If not prompted, manually reboot the machine anyway to ensure a complete clean.

    Thanks for your answers.

    AVG i had it before installed in my computer but then i removed it and i use now Avast. About this world of goo game, i have never play it or open it, i suppose it is game installed from ASUS. Anyway from the resulrs of HerdProtect i have only remove these two, AVG and goo game.

    I didnt have much time to test full day in the new admin user but for 1 more hour that i tested it was without crashes, till tomorrow i will try for more long time and i will post results. About tfc i have ran it before few days when TrashZone member suggested me it here(All Browsers Crashing Randomly)

    Sounds good. Keep me informed. And oops, missed the part about you already running tfc.

    Yes, I figured all those games were preinstalled by asus. I would go through your programs and features panel in control panel and uninstall anything you do not use. Not only to save space, (which isn't really necessary these days) but mostly for performance.

    That is bad news,
    I would not delay make another admin account,
    As soon as you do,
    Change both the other accounts to Standard users,
    You can then delete the second account,
    See if this new third created admin account lives longer with the permissions of the original admin account changed to standard user,

    Take a look in Event Viewer for critical and error events related to IE.

    Post a screenshot for a few unique events - the error codes might provide a lead.

    I do not see it necessary to create a new admin account since one was just created. I do think the event viewer is a good idea. Please follow the above advice, and then do the following:

    Questions I want answered:

    -What is your homepage set to?
    -What web sites are you accessing when it crashes? Any website?
    -When did this problem start? Did you install or uninstall any software recently when the problem occurred?
    -By crashing, is the browser closing and actually crashing? Or it says the browser failed to load the page like stated on first post?
    -How old is your modem/router?

    Download DDS:

    Save the file to your pc. Then open the dds icon to run the tool.
    When done, DDS will open two (2) logs:

    Save both reports to your desktop.
    Include the contents of both logs in your next post by using the paperclip

    I'm sticking with my suggestion,
    A bit more conservative than Nigel's although I would agree 100% with his
    Changing both would / should restrict the other two accounts from making system wide changes,
    Including what ever corruption exists,
    But it is important for the op to Not activate the same stuff that is most likely effecting other needed programs like browsers,
    You can still diagnose a standard account
