Hello all. I'm having an issue and I have no idea what's going on. Within the past few months after I use a browser for a while it freezes up and I usually have to restart my computer to get my browser to become responsive again.

I started off with Firefox, then got frustrated and switched back to Opera (I've gone back and forth between the two for about a year now.) Same issue. I had to start (ugh) using IE for awhile because it was the only one that seemed to be working then after a while I started getting the same issue with IE too! I'm using Google Chrome now and it's still happening, although not as frequently!

I've tried clearing cookies, uninstalling/reinstalling browsers, switching browsers (obviously), my computer is virus/malware/spyware free from what I understand. I do regular scans and all of my software is up to date. I have not started using any new firewall/anti-virus software recently.

I'm stumped! Help?

try using Secunia Online scanner to scan your programs for missing security updates
