If the problem still exists, click on the below link and download the file.

Hi Ulrich,

I agree with Jack4all about resetting Internet Explorer settings. It's worth a try. However, since all browsers are unable to open I wonder if you have a virus? Have you tried running your anti-virus software? If you don't have one you can always download Microsoft Security Essential for free (it's always free) and it can help you detect viruses.

Also, have you tried running Windows Updates to see if there is a vital update or two that you are missing? If not, do so and then restart your computer.

Hope this helps!
