    Hey guys,

    Just wanted to start out saying that I do not know much about computers so your help is greatly appreciated.

    I am having problems with my computer crashing on sites such as Yahoo. It's not the browser but I used Firefox and chrome and it still happened in particular on the fantasy sports page. I do not know how to get around this. Sometimes it happens in my yahoo email as well.

    The message reads chrome has stopped working with the spinning circle and I always have to restart the page and it just does the same thing. On Firefox it just crashes and tells you it has crashed. It is very frustrating.

    Can you guys help me out on how to fix this? Thank you!!!

    Have you installed anything recently or around the time the problem started?

    Are you using the most current versions of browsers and video codecs?

    I've had the exact same issue with Yahoo, specifically their news page.

    I can't stand Yahoo's news page. I have a Yahoo email account and that is all I use of theirs. They post a lot of bull**** articles that I'm positive are nothing more than *manufactured* articles like you find in a lot of non-news magazines. Hopefully that new CEO they hired will clean Yahoo up. It has literally become Internet trash.

    Also - check your Add-Ons in Firefox. Sometimes some can just seemingly show up out of nowhere.

    Also check for the malware "myincredibar"...this can actually install itself on your system. I had to go in Control Panel, look at installed programs, and do an explicit Uninstall on it. (you will know if you have this if you click on New Tab and the new tab tries to open to their site)

    One idea is to go to ninite.com. Click the applications you want to install or update and run it. It's the fastest way to update java, flash, etc, all at once.
