Default stalling when stopping

Hi there I have had this on again off again issue where my 2002 ford focus zx5 will stall whenever I stop (press on the brakes) as long as I have my foot on the gas it works fine but the minute I press the brakes it stalls... wondering if anyone might have any idea what could be causing this? and if its an easy fix or not thanks

Possibly dirty or bad Idle Speed Control motor. Try cleaning it first to see if it helps.
People are like Slinkies. Not much use, but it still makes me smile whenever I see one tumble down the stairs.

thanks for the reply, had it checked out and found it was the spark plugs and wiring that need to be changed.
