    for the last several months my internet (opera, aol explorer, IE) all will crash for no apparent reason. i never had the problem before i installed opera i believe, but i dont know why that should affect all my browers. it will usually get an error and have to close when i want to watch a video online, or want to go to somebody's myspace. but it will sometimes happen when its just a regular page. does anybody know why it would be doing this?

    i have win xp.

    run anti-virus
    http://www.avast.com/

    run spywear
    http://www.safer-networking.org/

    run defrag
    start> run > defrag

    clear out your catchs (IE is tools > internet options > dele files)
    opera should do that automaticly

    install firefox
    http://www.getfirefox.com (try that it works better)

    if all else fails you prob are going to have to format / reinstall windows.. OR try a repair install (recomened) just put in the CD go "install a copy of windows" then repair
