front and rear wheels locked up

hello unsure if this is the right place to post this... but here is my problem. so i went and started my quad this morning as we have fresh snow and wanted to go out and play. i go out and start the machine and let it warm up for about 15 or so minutes. i put it in reverse and it wont move.. so i put it in first and still nothing. now i have had snowmobiles lock up before and you pick up the rear and drop it it break up the ice. i tried this on my quad and still nothing. i checked the oil and it is good as well. so am i missing something that causes the quad to lock up? it was driving fine 2 days ago... i dont know what it could be that would cause both fornt and back to become locked. it was outside but under the deck as it snowed. there was barely any snow on it so i dont think it is frozen.
any help on this issue would be appreciated!
thanks
chuck

tap brakes

i picked it up and dropped it as well the rear brakes need to be replaced... they have never worked to stop me since i bought it. and the front brakes are almost gone as well. i will try tapping the drums. but dont think that is it. thank you though for the suggestion!

if you road it through any water the day/night before ?..more than likely..the water ..if any was inside the brake area ?..froze the brakes. and it helps us..to help you..if you tell us what atv this is ?..just comming on here..and saying..hey..my atv is locked up ?..doesn't narrow it down much !..lol.

MY bike locks up in the winter all the time, if there was any snow on the ground last time you rode you've probably got ice in the shoes. What're the symptoms? If it goes in gear and revs when you push the throttle you've got an entirely different problem than if it goes into gear and stumbles when you push the throttle. If it wont move I'd suggest warming up the brakes and turning the wheel as hard as you possibly can, don't drive it to break them though or you can toss axles.

Either the diffs are frozen from water being in them, or the brakes are froze up as well.
