IE and Firefox Keep Crahsing After Loading This Site's Reccomended

Thanks in advance for the help. This site is a LIFE-SAVER.

Last week, I caught some nasty reidrect and pop-up malware. Rorschach112 helped me clear it all in the Malware Forum. Rorschach112 -- you're the man!

But,I'm now having serious web browing issues. Basially,IE and Firefox keep crashing.

-- If I go on IE, I soon get a windows pop-up saying "IE has stopped working, checking for problems." I can usually close out of it and continue browsing the web, but sometimes IE freezes up.

-- On Firefox, I cannot access my Yahoo email account, or my email inbox in Facebook. It also has problems connecting to Google Maps and similar pages. I'm NOT getting re-directing or pop-ups, it just won't connect and then freezes up.

Rorschach says the problem is not Malware related. So, i'm guessing I have incorrectly configured all the new anti-virus, spyware, and firewall protection that this site recommended I downloaded, e.g., Avast, Spyblaster, Spyguard, McAffree, JRE, and Sunbelt Firewall. All are up and running and I turned off Windows Defender and Firewall (at least I think I did). But I can't really go online without IE or Modzilla freezing up.

Can someone please help me correctly configure the antivirus and firewall programs this site recommends.

Many Thanks!
