When clicking on the IE icon, IE opens for a few seconds blank then closes.

I am on my sons Laptop and as I dont use IE its becoming frustrating.

I have run AV and malware, all OK, I have tried a fix through MS and that didnt work. I also tried to download IE 10 as it has IE 9 installed on the laptop.

I cant do that as it says I have more recent version installed.

Tried a clean up with C cleaner

All other programs respond fine. OS Win7 64 bit. Its been like this for about a month.

Thanks jock1e for that, however I did manage to fix it via another method before I saw your post.

I went to Program features, in controll panel Clicked on View insalled updates.

Scrolled down to Microsoft Windows Section, right clicked on updates 213, and removed them, restarted the laptop. This didnnt fix the problem.

I removed further updates trying a restart after each removal 212, 211, and after removing update 210, all went well with IE.
