Recently , I uninstalled McAfee Virus Scan Enterprise ,Threatfire & Deep Freeze from my p.c. Thereafter , I re-installed Threatfire , & installed Avast Anti Virus & Comodo Firewall . Since I made these changes , Firefox 3.6.17 started to hang so I uninstalled it & downloaded & installed Version 8.0.1 . After that , Firefox crashes every time I try to open it even before it has opened up . Why is this happening ? Do I need to specify it as a trusted application (exception) in any of the Security applications that I have installed ? I already specified it as trusted in Comodo . Was this necessary ? I even completely uninstalled & then re-installed it all over again but still it crashes . What could be the solution ?
To zoom in on the problem , I tried opening it in Safe Mode but it still crashes straightaway. However , if I start Windows in Safe mode or "Safe Mode with Networking" and then start Firefox 8.0.1 , then it starts up correctly . So , I assume , it has to be one of the following 3 causes that is making it crash :
(1) Is one of my Start Up Programs that is causing Firefox to crash .
Following is list of the running processes when I start my p.c. (Other than the one's that are displayed when I start my p.c. in Safe Mode) :-
Could one of these be the culprit ?
(2) Or is it a Virus ? ( Ran "Avast Boot time Scan" twice but even after that it crashes ).
(3)It is Avast , Threatfire or Comodo Firewall that is making it crash ?
