Why have VLC Media Player and Firefox stoped working in Windows 7?

Rohan July 1, 2011

I was browsing the net and watching a movie simultaneously. Suddenly, both my VLC and Mozilla were closed. Now even as I click on their icons they are not opening. I tried reinstalling them and also restored previous versions and troubleshooting compatibility, but it didn’t work.

    Have you run complete antivirus and antimalware scans on the affected computer?
