Try all programs, accessories, system tools and find IE no add-ons. Make sure the 'normal' IE isn't running in the background. Go to tools, internet options, advanced tab and use the reset tab for IE. Close and reboot. Open the normal IE and see if it works. All your favourites are preserved but you will need to restore whatever toolbars you used and also your add-ons. If IE ok then take your time in enabling add-ons as you may have one that is causing this error.
