What version of IE?
Can you go to windows update?
Helpful links here, here, and here.
If you have no luck there, consider that possibly an installation of norton or other security firewall is at fault, or some malware has infected your system. In the latter case, follow these instructions to scan you system and remove the offending programs.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

1) Make sure its not the firewall by going to Control Panel --> Firewall Settings --> and shutting off the firewall, than try running Internet Explorer.
2) If you had to run Comcast's crappy software installation, then you have the same problem I did. The installation changed the LAN settings in your IE to use a comcast proxy server. Go to Tools --> Connections. At the bottom of the tab is a button to change the LAN settings. Unlick the proxy checkbox, and change it to Auto Detect Settings. That should do the trick.
