All browsers slow after a few days - maybe a Flash problem?

Hi, my system is Windows 7 Premium 64 bit Celeron 743 CPU @ 1.3 GHz 2GB Ram

All the browsers I've tried - Chrome, Firefox, IE 10 - seem to run slowly/crash after a few days. Deleting history doesn't help. Deleting Chrome or Firefox completely and reinstalling seems to get them working again for a day or so then problems begin. It's a problem even if the only thing I run is the browser and it seems to affect other programs as well.

I've tried disabling add-ons which seems to make things worse! Private mode is just as bad.

I wonder if it's a Flash issue as after installing it things seem to go wrong - and I do want it for certain sites. But maybe that's coincidence?

Any advice welcome.

Thanks

Update - I removed all traces of Flash as best I could and installed Chrome which has it built in. I don't see Flash in add/remove programs and there's no Flash setting in control panel. So far Chrome is... OK. Not fast but at least pages open... about 2-3 seconds on the BBC website for example.
