Hello, for the past 2 days whenever I use Google Chrome or Firefox (my Internet explorer works fine for some reason) they will crash. Now my firefox will not even boot and my Chrome just crashes everytime I try to go to another webpage. Sometimes when I boot up my computer it will take forever to load everything and it will not start the internet. Also, my computer doesn't allow me to use System restore, I mean when I try, it goes through the process but after the reboot it says "System restore has failed. Nothing has been changed" this just recently started happening out of nowhere..What could be wrong? Please help me as soon as possible..I greatly appreciate any help.

EDIT: Also, I forgot to add that I have tried reinstalling firefox and chrome but they still just keep doing the exact same thing.

Hi, I'm somewhat confused, nothing unusual in that :).

You say that IE works without problems?

If you remove the browsers other than IE...does the system boot normally without the others?

Is the system current for critical updates?

System manufacturer and model?

Any other system anomalies, other than System Restore?
