Internet Explorer won't launch
« on: June 23, 2014, 06:57:39 AM »
I have a laptop with Win7 that I cannot get IE to launch after getting my browser hijacked.  I have reset the web settings to default, turned IE off/on in Windows features and no change. When clicking on the 'e' or going through start, internet explorer, it looks likes it's trying to open, but then stops.  I've tried clicking on a favorite from c:\users and still nothing will load.

What's strange is that I have a weather app on my desktop, and it updates, and if I do a start, search and key in internet, I can access the "internet backgammon" and "internet checkers" which connects you with other players.  Please help......

I recommend you have one of our Malware Removal experts have a look at your system to ensure it is clean. Please follow the instructions posted here. Then return back here to this thread for any follow on.

Once your system is declared clean, if IE still does not work, see this, How to repair or reinstall Internet Explorer.
