Internet explorer won't open

  Totally-braindead 15:02 24 Nov 04

A friend of mine has a PC on which internet explorer won't start up on, you see on the screen for a fraction of a second the internet explorer page but it just closes down again. I've tried repairing internet explorer and reinstalled it as well but neither makes any difference. Anyone any ideas?

sfc may work on win 98 / xp.

Thanks for that Diodorus Siculus I'm getting the PC delivered tonight and I'll give that a go and see what happens, the PCs on XP. I thought system restore might help but they've already tried that so any ideas would be appreciated. If I have to I'll blank it and reinstall but thats a last resort, I'd much rather find out whats wrong with it in case it happens again.

Thought of that kaz_lovin_mike the Pc has Norton Anti Virus on it fully updated, reason I thought of a virus is the auto protect has been disabled and it won't go back on. Does anyone know if this a sign of a virus?

It could be, try booting into Safe Mode and then doing a virus scan.
