    Welcome to the lounge,greta.
    1) Make sure the browser in question is up to date.Google quashes 13 Chrome bugs, adds PDF viewer

    2) OS is what version of vista,32bit or 64?
    3) You might need to install more memory? Never go by what M$ minimum suggestion because it will not be enough by any means.
    4) Check your hard disk for errors.Here's the link to help you;M$
    5)Shockwave Help make sure it's up to date;Shockwave-Flash
    6)Java update here;Java

    And don't use registry cleaners. They cause more harm than good.

    I disagree on the registry cleaner comments. I use CCleaner and have never had a problem so from my experience they work well. Did you also clean out all your temp internet files. These tend to get quite large and have been known to cause problems.

    I use Last Pass password manager so I choose to clean out all temp internet files whenever I close my browser. This allows the browser to stay lean at all times. With Last Pass whenever I sign onto a site requireing a log on, Last Pass remember my password info for me.

    My advice on "registry cleaners" is and has ever been Never use Any "registry cleaner" for Any reason at Any time.
    Create a fresh drive image before making system changes, in case you need to start over!

    CCleaner's registry cleaner is very conservative, but I've stopped using it anyway. I use Revo for uninstalling programs, and the registry entries it removes are enough. Extra lines in the registry do no harm. It's just 2 text files.
