    Currently using Vista Home Prem. and I am experiencing the same issue for 3 web browsers; IE, Firefox & Opera. Opera seems to crash the most but if I try to visit Cnet's site I can make all 3 crash. I have McAfee virus protection. I've tried uninstalling and then reinstalling browsers but to no avail.

By the way it sounds, Shivam is right, your pc may be infected by a virus and you need to run a "Full" scan in order to rid of the virus.

some of the best anti-viruses are:

Windows Live, onecare
Norton anti-virus
Mcafree Anti virus

try buying or using one of these anti virus programs to help solve your problem.

hope this helps! :)

File header checksum does not match computed one. ???

You have one or more critical corrupted file/s which prevents the laptop from booting up.
To get the laptop operating again, you need to insert the Windows Vista CD and do a Repair and if this fails you need to install Vista again.
