Recently, whenever I click on any browser (Chrome, Firefox, Mozilla), the icon highlights for a few seconds then fades without opening a window. I did virus scans and went back to the farthest restore point I could, but no dice. Strangely, I am able to open browser windows when my laptop is in Safe Mode. My OS is Windows 7. Any ideas why this could be happening? Assistance or advice would be greatly appreciated!

If browsers still fails,create  a new user account and let me know if that helps.
