Chrome, Firefox, and other applications not opening on vista

When I double click on the icon for Firefox, Chrome and some other applications they do not run. I am on a Windows Vista 64 bit OS. Firefox and Chrome previously worked on my computer. They appear in the processes tab of windows task manager, but the windows do not appear. The first few times this happened it was fixed by restarting my computer and they worked fine afterwards, but would stop working after the computer was restarted again.
I have tried running them as an adminstrator, doing virus scans and have searched troubleshooting forums for answers, but have found nothing.
