Recently, I've discovered that werfault.exe and browsermngr.exe would turn off and on (simultaneously) every 4 seconds.
My first attempt to fix the issue was to run Norton, which found nothing. I then tried to set my computer to a different restore point, but the problem persisted. This, however, dredged up a new problem - I couldn't update Windows. Windows gave me the 80070643 Error Code, and after clicking the links provided by the trouble-shooting program, it said the problem was either a faulty Microsoft Word 2003 installation (I have Office 2010)or something was wrong with my .Net Framework.
For a long while, I couldn't get my .Net Framework repaired. The Control Panel wouldn't let me do it. I had tried two versions of Microsoft's Fix It tool, but to no avail. I tried another repair tool offered by Microsoft, and while it seemed to function better, it said it couldn't repair it fully. I restarted my computer to let the changes it did manage to make set it, and when I went back to the Control Panel to repair the .Net Framework, it allowed me to fix it this time.
Now that my computer is once more all up to date, and my .Net Framework is no longer giving me problems, I still have those 2 stupid programs (werfault.exe and browsermngr.exe) cycling through my Task Manager. If I follow the advice online by disabling werfault.exe, a pop-up comes to my screen saying "browsermngr.exe has stopped working: Windows can check online for a solution to the problem." but it never finds a solution. And it keeps popping up once I opt for "Close the program"/ click the "X". It has a "View problem details" drop down menu, but it's information is useless to me:
