IE Browser won't come up

  1. Anyone have any ideas on this?
    I can't get the browser to load up on my computer that is running Widnows XP Home SP2. When you click on the icon the hour glass appears for about 5 seconds and then stops and nothing happens. I can load other programs from the desk top icon page. I am running Norton Antivirus. I don't know if this has anything to do with the problem or not.
    Thanks.

    Try launching IE from Windows Explorer:

    Right slick on Start> Explore> Programs> click on Internet Explorer> look on the right screen for and click on iexplore.exe.

    If IE launches correctly, delete your previous shortcut and create a new one. Shortcuts can get corrupt.
