Hey guys, first time here.

So recently, firefox has been crashing while i've been using it. It crashes pretty quickly. It crashes almost immediately when i visit certain sites, while on other sites like google, it crashes randomly. All the crashes occur less than 5 minutes in.
I attempted to ran anti-virus scanners like AVG free, malwarebytes, superantispyware, but none of them opened, or allowed me to run a scan. I used rkill to prevent firefox from crashing for awhile, but i know it's only temporary. I recently has the antivirus system pro virus, but their ads aren't popping up anymore

Any solutions?

P.S. I'm an idiot when it comes to ccomputers, so bare with me ;)

I'm working on the logs

Edit: It miracously is working fine at the moment. let's hope it lasts

As no logs have been posted, I am shifting this topic from the specialized HiJack This forum to the Am I Infected forum.
