I always seem to have a problem with Java updates and browsers, I learnt a wile ago to untick the browser plugin option on update.
This weekend I had a Java update 1.8.1 or similar and it did not have the tick box and I installed it - big mistake. I have three browsers installed Edge, Firefox and Chrome and none of these work now. Email was also a problem and I have now got all the browsers to open but they will only show one or two pages before they freeze. Edge does not show any images.
Chrome was the lest effected and they all work OK in safemode. Has anyone else come across this problem and know of a fix?
I tried reinstalling Firefox and Chrome without any success. I also uninstalled the Java update.
