I'm having problems with my internet explorer/firefox. Everytime i go to look at videos at steakandcheese.com or other video streaming sites my cpu usage goes to 100 the video doesnt play and my computer either crashes or i have to slowly use task manager to close internet explorer/firfox(problem is the same on both).

I have 1 gig of ram pentium 4 a 6200 geforce vid card Windows xp proffesinal. I have tried avg free edition mcafree antivirus spyware doctor amust registry cleaner spybot search and destroy and also adware se. some of these programs saw and got ride of trojons and other nasty stuff as far as i can tell everything works fine the desktop wouldnt let me put in a differnt backdrop but i fixed that. Only problem now is when i go to sites to watch and click on the page that loads a video it makes my computer slow down and/or crash. Any suggestions on how to fix this would be highly apreciated thanx allot :thumbsup:

It wouldn't be a bad idea if you reran a few of those programs again.

The reason I say this is because you've already mentioned that you had trojans or such, but you fixed the issues. Sometimes those issues aren't fully fixed. They will cause other problems when you get rid of those problems, sometimes.

I, personally would like for you to at least try this regisrty cleaner:

Eusing Registry Cleaner
Eusing registry cleaner is a fast and FREE, and most importantly, very good at cleaning out bad registry entries. Even if you use other registry cleaners, you should definitely add this one to your list.

Even if you already use one, try this, and you may be so amazed at how it finds invalid registries. It's been good to me. I'm not saying it'll fix your problem, but it will make a big difference when it gets rid of all those invalid entires that you thought were gone.

If you have java installed, uninstall it and then reinstall it again.

You should also clear out the cache, delete temp files, then reboot.

Hope that helps.
