Google problems

I'm having massive problems with Google with Firefox, IE and Chrome.

* Frequently I get the 'can't load page' and that damn 'Oops'error
* in Images the search freezes
* when I change search settings via the spanner icon, they don't stay changed
* when I open Images, only the first page loads
* IF I scroll to the bottom of the awful new Images site to use standard view, page won't load / can't be displayed

I also have a Toshiba laptop running Windows 7; it functions perfectly but I sure could do with some help for the Dell!

Dell Inspiron 530
Windows Vista Home Premium 32 bit

Given so little to work with.

Do you think the OS is damaged? Does a fresh install work?

I'd give you more detail, Bob, if I knew what would be of use. Are you suggesting that I do a full re-install of Vista? Scary......
