It does not matter which browser I use, but I keep getting crashes. Like in every few mins.
Firefox even did it as I was posting this question
Firefox, IE, Maxthon, Google Chrome, Safari Opera & other browsers act the same
Firefox even crashes in safe mode.
Please help.
What can it be.
Flash player also crashes
I have done virus & Malware scans & nothing found

Is there an error message, and if so what does it say?

Sounds like a hard ware driver problem for it to happen on all browsers. Check device manager to see if any errors flagged. Especially Ethernet / network drivers

Need more info.

Define 'crash'. What exactly happens?

Do other programs crash or do you only ever use a browser?

What version of Windows? Provide any other relevant info, for example: if you've been getting other problems or just had the machine repaired or formatted etc,etc.

Also, take a look in Event Viewer (run eventvwr) for errors in the System and Application logs.

If the 'crashing' isn't limited to just browsing, it's likely to be a hardware issue - RAM is the obvious one to start with.

There is a major world wide attack on internet services at the moment and is slowing down all services to a virtual crawl, this is probably what your problem is.
my advice is to be patient and sit tight until things improve.

There is?

And why would that make a browser crash?

lack of data coming in fast enough, they time out
my own browsers are behaving very erratically, some websites load better in one browser but not at all in others
I keep switching from one browser to another to try to get the best of the slow speeds.
But then again I might be wrong, my computer might be screwed up also,
I surrender to those with greater knowledge on these matters than I, my apologies if my words have caused offence

Not noticed any problems today with the sites I have been looking at and even if there is no data coming in it should not make a browser crash.

Your problem sounds more like a problem with your own broadband speed. Have you tried restarting the router?

The only way at the moment for Firefox to work for me is to disable Shockwave Flash in add ons & start FF with all add ons disabled
