Windows 7: All browsers are not opening

15 Nov 2012   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

My problem seemed to solve itself... I do remember though I uninstalled the Flash updates and other Adobe updates.
You can try: uninstall browsers, then uninstall Flash, finally reinstall browsers. You may have to restart between each step. It seemed to work for me.
Hope it helps,

I'm glad you are fixed. The only thing I can think of is the Flash was the problem. Reason is it effected all browsers. It's not logical that all browsers downloaded and installed incorrectly.
You can use one of these two programs to check if Flash is up to date and many other programs. I use both and they do work. Update Checker -

Welcome to Seven Forums alkarim77. It's always a good idea to start a new thread, but since you posted here...

Do you have a firewall? I found the latest Comodo update blocked all my browsers, they will not even open. I did a system restore from before the update (don't have time to troubleshoot what Comodo did), and all is well. Quite odd they didn't even open, like yours, rather then couldn't connect.

Try to connect from Safe mode with Networking. This tute is for 7, but it's the same. If you can connect from safe mode, something, likely a security program, is blocking them.

Safe Mode

You can then try a clean start to track it down (this too is the same in XP)
