Win 7 Some programs won't launch.

I have a problem. When i try to run Raptr desktop app, Anno 1404 or The Lord of the Rings Online sometimes they launch for few secs and immediately close or won't run at all. Tried reinstalling them and repairing Win 7. Didn't help. I don't know what to do anymore.
Any help appreciated.

Run Malwarebytes / antivirus to check for any infection. Were you able to run these programs before? If yes, do a system restore to the date where you were able to run them.

No programs launch.
I'm running Windows 7 Ultimate x64. No programs launch. I click on Firefox and the icon lights up in the taskbar as if it opens, however the window never comes up. After about a second, the icon dims again. The Firefox process never shows up in task manager. Any help would be appreciated.
