I'll give you a few things to check.
Control Panel - Add or Remove Programs - On the left side -
Add or Remove Windows Componets - See if Internet Explorer has a check mark if not than put one and click

Right click Start - Properties - Customize - Select Internet Explorer - put a check mark at the beginning of that line
for Internet -
OK - Apply - OK

Start - Control Panel - Internet Options - Connections Tab -
See if Internet Explorer is highlighted.
Click always dial my default connection - Apply - OK

If I were you, I'd run a check for spyware and malware. It's possible something might have latched on to the browsers to prevent them from opening, or causing an inifinite redirect of sorts. I've heard of badly written spyware that can just crash a browser as soon as you try to open it.

It would make sense if you are still able to access games and connect online through FTP and etc. Burn a malware scanner to disk and have a search with one of those!
