Why IE does NOT launch...?

By rajsdoshi ·

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, Firefox immediately EXITS. Why? (This happens for just a small handful of sites. I use Firefox

Thank you in advance for your time.

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.
