  1. Hello,

    I have HP dv6 3022ss with built in windows 7, previously i had installed Chrome which worked fine for like 2 months but it started giving me problems like when i launch Chrome, my the start menu button and tray icons stops responding but after some time i ge the controls back it started to get on my nerves i removed Chrome installed firefox and with this broswer I encounter a new problem when I try to enter a URL it gets stuck, I removed it too installed, Opera and found the same problem. However the IE is working fine but I really do not want to use IE.

    Immediate help is required.

    Thanks in advance.

    It may seem a simple point to mention, but have you tried a system restore to a time before the first problem appeared?

    If system restore doesn't solve it, restoring a previous system backup, if you have one, should.

    Sometimes solving a problem is easier than seeking its cause.

    The more programs you install, the more problems you may have due to potential conflicts.

    Get back to your previous restore point or just re-install Windows 7.
