No internet options

hey everyone,
Its been quite awhile since Ive posted butt ive got a problem I cant seem to solve.

I must have picked up a worm or something cause I lost my internet options on IE8. Im on windows XP and what happens is it flashes and doesnt comeup, and Ive also lost access to two or three sites that I used to post on, Any help would be appreciated,

Ive also got MF and I can access options on this, but its not the same as IE internet options I dont like it as much,
