    Try this, open Internet Explorer, go to Tools > Internet Options.
    Click the Advanced tab and at the lower right, click restore defaults, then click Privacy, lower the slider abit and click ok.
    Close IE and reopen then try it.

    Ive tried the default idea but still nothing, my Registry key has been changed by a virus or something before, i probably should have mentioned this before.

    You might try this:
    Click Start > Run and type in "sfc /scannow" without the quotes.
    Click ok. You may need your Win XP c.d.
    It's supposed to replace any corrupt or missing files.

    OK then, let's try this fix:
    How do I repair Internet Explorer in Windows® XP?
    Revised - 03/03/2002

    The ability to Repair Internet Explorer does not exist in the version that ships with Windows XP. This feature only becomes available after you upgrade to a newer version. This is normal and has been this way since Windows 98 and IE4.

    However, you can reinstall IE in Windows XP by clicking Start, Run and entering the following command:

    rundll32.exe setupapi,InstallHinfSection DefaultInstall 132 %windir%\Inf\ie.inf

    You will need to have your XP CD available.

    Some people have problems with the command line above. A small VB Script that will execute the command for you can be downloaded here. Save the file to your hard drive and double click it to run IE Setup.
