I don't have many details here but try opening up your browser, it won't open but the program should then be running. Click and hold Ctrl+Alt+Del keys and select task manager. It will return you to your desktop but now the task manager window will be open. In the applications tab check to see if Internet Explorer is running, if not go to the processes tab and scroll down looking at the image name column and look for internet explorer. If it is there right click it and select 'End Process Tree'. If it was there and you have ended the process exit out of the task manager and try to start up your browser. Hope this helped.

Okay, try opening up Windows update and look for anything at all related to Internet Explorer. If there is an update download and install it, then restart your system. Try opening it after you restart.

Have you tried running it from start> all programs ?
Perhaps your desktop shortcut has become corrupt.

Go into the control panel and uninstall Internet Explorer, give me an email or something of the sort I can send an installer to. I really cannot think of anything else at this point, I know as a basic rule it is a bad idea to give out your email but if you want this to work I will need it. Also do you want Chrome? Or just Internet Explorer?

Private message your email if you decide to do so.
