IE and Chrome keep crashing - Everything else is fine

By ditchmagnet ·
The system was infected with malware, but it is cleaned up now. IE and Chrome will just keep crashing though.

The OS is vista, and I tried downgrading to IE7, and back to IE8,reset IE through Internet Options, uninstalled/reinstalled chrome, cleared temp files, uninstalled security software. Nothing was worked.

Any suggestions other than backup/re-install?

Malwarebytes, Combofix, AVG, MRT, TFC, CCleaner,Disk Cleanup,Chkdsk /r, sfc /scannow

I know those aren't all malware removal programs, but also programs to help cleanup errors.

Problem is,

even when the malware files and registry entries are gone, the files and settings they replaced are still broken or missing.

You could try a non-destructive repair install of Vista.

Did you scan with MBAM in Safe Mode?
