Browswer bog down
Using Vista Home Premium,

IE7

Firefox 3.0

Charter cable for Internet access.

After approx 2-3 hours both browsers seem to screech to a halt and just
quit. Restarting the PC seems to clear it up, but it is AGGRAVATING that a
brand new PC with so much capability would do this.

Antivirus: Panda 2008
Spybot Search and Destroy
Zone Alarm Free Firewall
Windows Defender

Gateway 5662
Phenom Quad Core processor
4 GB memory

Any suggestions?

Hi,

Check browser plugins, as they are the most common cause of that sort of
behavior. Disable those not actually being used.
