I am using ie 7 and it will not run. It opens for 3 seconds and shuts down with no error messages. I have run all sorts of spy ware/anti virus, installed ie 8, tried using the disc..nothing has worked. I use firefox no problem, but there some programs i can't open with fire fox. The icon in the control panel it there but there are no words next to it and it will not open either. Please help!
Thank you.

If you have any toolbars installed, try uninstalling them. If you have any pop-up blockers installed, disable or uinstall them.

If you are using IE 7 you can try to run the program without loading any add-ons to see if one of them is causing the problems. To do this, click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

(You can also load IE without add-ons by clicking START --> RUN and then typing iexplore.exe -extoff)

If those don't work try to re-register IEPROXY.DLL by clicking START --> RUN and
regsvr32.exe "c:\program files\internet explorer\ieproxy.dll" and then clicking OK.

Hey, seems very weird you might have a corrupt Browser. Try opening IE in safe mode, when pc is starting keep pressing f8 then choose safe mode + networking.

Malware can also do this make sure your pc is clean.
