Windows 7: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Firefox WON'T OPEN!

Internet Explorer, Google Chrome and Firefox WON'T OPEN!

Irritating! I was on the Channel 4 website watching videos, then I closed Google Chrome, opened iTunes (which incidentally doesn't work now either, keeps freezing), tried to go back into Google Chrome, no joy, neither with Firefox or IE. They just won't open!

What's going on here?!

Can you run your Anti-virus program? You may have a piece of malware.

A full system scan with Norton 360 shows nothing. Google Chrome and Firefox appear after about 20 minutes, but they're frozen.

UPDATE: I did a System Restore. That seems to have got Firefox and Chrome up and working again. IE still seems to be unable to load. Norton went down briefly (SONAR protection turned off, unable to turn it on again) but a restart sorted that.

Solved. A simple system restore worked wonders.
