After i restarted by laptop (after 2 months of hibernation), Firefox, Chrome and Outlook stopped working at once. I can see in the process list that there's firefox.exe and chrome.exe, but the applications didn't appear. And my outlook can only work under safe mode. If not safe mode, it hangs each time i enter.

Now I'm in Windows XP safe mode and all the apps above are working.

How can I fix this problem?

I would suggest making sure you're Windows updates are all up to date and then restart it a couple of times to get it working in good flow again.  Hibernation is good for short term but it's probably best fully shutting it down if it's going to be off for so long.

It is also worth doing what Gnemi has suggested as there are most likely new versions of all three software packages.

Hope this helps

I would suspect that something has happened to your application data for the account that you are using. Perhaps as a result of a virus. If you log in as a different user do the applications work for you.
