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

Hi Guys
I turned OFF my Firewall so my All browsers working,
HITMAN PRO seems kind of virus because after trying that I lost internet on IE as well.

Anyway thanks guys! I m closing this question now

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

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.
 
Thank you,
