    Why IE does NOT launch…?

    Locked

    by rajsdoshi ·

    Hello,

    Suddenly, since a few days ago, the Internet Explorer fails to launch. I see the IE “tab” but it is inactive.

    Q1: What could have caused this?
    Q2: How can I get IE to launch again.

    FYI: I use XP Pro, SP2.

    Third Question: In Firefox, when I type in a URL like http://www.ConsumerReports.org, Firefox immediately EXITS. Why? (This happens for just a small handful of sites. I use Firefox 2.0.0.16.)

    Thank you in advance for your time.

      Make sure that the system is not infected.

      Perhaps a repair install is in order after you check for and remove any infection present.
      You may wish to try and repair IE through the Add/Remove Programs menu first.

      It sounds like something is missing or broken.

      Create another User Account with Admin privelages. Log on as that User and see if you have access. If you do copy all of your information from your old Profile to the new one.

      Let us know how you get on.
