    Double click on the icon on the desktop or start menu and nothing happens. Firefox launches and acts normally. Computer running MSN proprietary browser. Tried removing it, but it didn't help. Tried to uninstall and re-install IE, but that didn't work either.

    About a week ago, IE worked, but it took about 5 minutes to launch. Now it won't launch at all.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    IE8?

    Try right clicking on the IE icon and choose Start Without Add-ons
