windows 7 program and video issues

January 8, 2011 at 22:07:18
Specs: Windows 7, quad core 3.4ghz/ 4gb
Many programs gets the error 'stop working' and closes down as soon as i open it. for example skype.

Also when i play any flash videos such as youtube videos on firefox i get 'adobe flash player has crashed'
I cant even open IE. gets stop working error and crashs.

When i run safe mode all problems disappears. I run antivirus and malwarebytes skan and removed few trojans.

This seem to have started happening after windows made some kind of update.

Please help. Anything appreciated.

is it a factory preset windows 7 or an upgrade?
If you don't have a recovery cd, you can download a free one here:

sounds like bad addons, try resetting your browsers.
