FireFox Crashing and IE8 Crashing

I just reinstalled McAfee (Total Security) to correct a conflict with legacy Norton utility last weekend. Two days later, I believe the computer was even used in an intervening day, Firefox (3.0.10, continuously crashed upon opening. I had never seen this sort of crash). It enabled info to be collected and sent to firefox. IE8 when launched, would start opening windows again and again, I race to kill them as they opened and succeeded and had about 10 window open at one time.
I then launched Firefox in safemode, successfully. While doing so, I disabled all my add ins. I then one by one activated the disabled add ins and when I got to McAfee site advisor, the problem recurred. This coincided with IE8 issue.
Now, I have uninstalled siteadvisor and all is working again. It was a very annoying hour or two and I have not heard anything about this.
I am running 64 bit Vista Premium Home PC.

I hope this helps anyone with this problem.
