    what happens when you try and start

    see if you can run in safe mode - without any add-ons

    in the search box (click on the start globe, and the search box is at the bottom) type iexplore -extoff then press Enter
    OR
    Hold the Windows key and press R, then type iexplore -extoff then press Enter

    Are you using Internet Explorer 8 or 9 or 10?
