    Hi all, I'm experiencing a very annoying problem with my PC lately, if anyone could help I'd be very appreciative.

    The PC boots just fine and all programs are very responsive. However, when I try using Firefox or Chrome to surf the web (I don't use IE), certain websites cause my system to crash. It happens on a website that tries to play a video, there's nothing I can do at this point but restart.

    After a restart there doesn't appear to be any problems, I can surf freely at this point, it happens just the once. I've got up to date graphics card drivers and motherboard drivers, no viruses were found.

    I don't really know how to investigate the problem so if anyone could point me in the right direction that'd be brilliant :)

    Sometimes a reinstall of Windows works wonders :) With all the hours you will probably spend racking your brain trying to solve the issue. A reinstall could have been done 5 times over.

    Also try running seatools to check hard drive for errors.

    I've tried reinstalling Flash player, no improvement, certain websites are still causing crashes. Are there any steps I can go through to diagnose the problem?

    Please list your PC spec and OS and also updated all your drivers GPU etc Also update flash/java and both web browsers to lastest versions.

    Also check event viewer for error around that time to indicate a problem, would also be worth running windows updates.
