As the title clearly states, I just recently formatted the C:> drive for my Windows 7 Sony Vaio Lap top and now my browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome) won't fully load. They'll open, but they never actually load. Usually they quit responding and I exit out of them. What did I do wrong? and what should I do to fix it?

You are joking right?
How could your Windows still be running after a format? Not to mention that Windows will refuse a C: format command when it is still running.
What exactly did you do?

Ah, I apologize. My mistake and you are quite right. Using VAIO Assist I "Restored" my C:> Drive to factory settings by deleting extraneous files and installing basic software. Does that make sense? Anyway, after it was all said and done, my laptop was in, generally, the same shape as when I bought it. However, as I said previously, I couldn't fully open my browsers.

Ok, well, I seemed to have solved the problem by opening IE (64 bit). *facepalm* I suppose this topic should be closed now.
