    Hi, and welcome to the board!

    Which version of Internet Explorer is this? 6.0?

    I have a couple of things for you you could do to start with:

    First, try setting IE5 as your default browser. Go to IE tools/internet options/programs and turn on the check box for IE to check if it is the default browser. Shut down and restart IE. When it asks to be default browser, say yes.

    Also have a look at this MS article:

    Internet Shortcuts in Outlook Express Don't Start Browser

    Good luck,

    If no joy, try repairing IE, if you have that option available: Description of the Internet Explorer Repair Tool

    If you don't, do this:

    Go to Start - Run (type each line below separately, then press OK)

    regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll
    regsvr32 Shell32.dll
    regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
    regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
    regsvr32 Mshtml.dll
    regsvr32 Urlmon.dll


    Note: you should see a brief message after each entry.
    Reboot and test IE - New Window, repost with your results.

    Good luck,
