What happens - error messages etc ?

Do you have a software firewall and have the other browsers been whitelisted by it ?

Where the other browsers present before, or have you added them recently ?

Try downloading Hitman Pro, it's a collection of antimalware tools and does a pretty good job at cleaning your system up.

If you have difficulty running it, try rebooting your system into safe mode with networking and running it there

Increase your protection from Zero Day threats!

Running two Antivirus' is never a good idea.
Taking advantage of Multiple Security layers on the other hand can often save your hide.
See which top notch security software brands have been proven to happily coexist together.

Also - Do your other browsers work in safe mode with networking?

I identified the firewall as a potential cause fo the problem by asking

"Do you have a software firewall and have the other browsers been whitelisted by it ?"

All,
 
Following an 'Objection' by yarwell (at http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q_26883376.html) to the intended closure of this question, it has been reviewed by at least one Moderator and is being closed as recommended by the Expert.
 
At this point I am going to re-start the auto-close procedure.
