Wow... Where to start?

Recently, Firefox became a crash machine with constant crashes. Sometimes simply moving from page to page, sometimes locking up when nothing is happening. I prefer Firefox, but the crashes became so bad, I started using IE 8 and guess what? That browser will only stay up moments if it comes up at all. Finally, I went to Chrome and same deal there; it crashes suddenly upon start up on moments after. Firefox seem to be the most stable, but you never know when it's going to crash or freeze up.

On top of these issues, I've always used Malware Bytes anti-malware, but when the above issues began, it quit finding anything. Furthermore, I was running Adaware and it always found a cookie or two. When I began using the trial version ESET Node 32 anti-virus V4.0, I had to uninstall Adaware. Now when I try to re-install Adaware, the file is corrupted. Also, now that my trial is up for ESET, I have tried to download AVG and it errors during the installation process.

Sounds like I've got a good one...

Suggestions greatly appreciated!
