Try pressing F8 while you boot it up, then choose Last known good configuration to start windows. Take a look at the event viewer (see here) and see if there are error messages reported there that indicate a problem, and possibly work through the solutions offered by MS for IE8 installation issues here.
But I'm guessing you have experienced a malware issue with your system, and will need to scan for and remove that before you can carry on. I recommend following these protocols.
If that comes up clean, then try running chkdsk to scan your hard drive for file corruption, according to the instructions here and here. (This can be done from the recovery cds (see here) or recovery console, if you don't get windows to reboot from the hard drive.)
Just in case, here's a general startup troubleshooter and here's an xp startup troubleshooter that may help you get it up and running again...This site also has many useful resources for sorting out this sort of problem, like this page.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

You should have a windows recovery cd/dvd for your system. insert it and look what your laptop does. somewhere in the process you should get the option to repair your system. this should help. as this is a bit more trickier i can't explain every step here. but i'm sure you find good workthroughs via websearch. hope that helps you.

Internet explorer will not open


try to do system restore 2 - 3 days from the time you first experience the problem.

to do system restore ( for windows xp) click start, click all programs, click accessories, click system tools and click system restore. click next and after that you will be able to see a calendar with dates that is bold form, it means that those bold dates are your usable restore points and choose the restore point 2 - 3days from the time you first experience the problem then click next or restore. after that the computer will process the system restore and will restart automatically, if the system restore is successful click the finish button if not just click ok and try another restore point.

---------------------------------

if that doesnt work try to go to safemode w/ networking, at that mode try to use your internet explorer.

to go to safemode w/ networking shutdown the computer completely. turn it on again after 10 - 20 secs, as soon as you see the dell screen immediately tap the " F8 " key continuously. if that is successful you be in the windows advance menu option screen. use your up and down arrow key in your keyboard to navigate, choose the safemode w/ networking and hit enter twice. log in to your account or name ( not the administrator ) just to check if you are in the safemode w/ networking, there will be safemode word in each corner of your screen and the desktop background is black.

if you are using windows xp and you are internet explorer 8, try to uninstall the internet explorer 8.

to uninstall the internet explorer 8, follow the instructions below
- click start
- click control panel
- click add/remove programs
- navigate and look for the internet explorer 8, click it then click remove and restart the computer after.

Ever since upgrading to Internet Explorer 8, I find that I cannot print emails, open up many attachments, and retrieve other information. For example, if I click on a link, I get the following message:...


Ther are known conflicts with Vista and IE8 - particularly with Vista 64-bit.

I would suggest uninstalling IE8 and reinstalling IE7 or using an alternative browser such as "slimbrowser" (excellent program) or similar.

IE8 can be uninstall by using Add or Remove Programs module in Windows XP, but in Windows Vista, Windows Internet Explorer 8 is not considered to be a ‘program’. Instead, IE8 is categorizing as an ‘update’. Thus, users will not be able to find Windows Internet Explorer 8 in “Programs and Features” of Windows Vista.

To uninstall Internet Explorer 8, go to Control Panel, and click on Uninstall Programs link or Programs and Features icon. Then on Tasks pane on the left, click on View installed updates link. Locate and select Windows Internet Explorer 8 in the list of installed updates, and then click on Uninstall button. Click on Yes when asked that are you sure want to uninstall the update.

If there is no option of IE8 been found on “Programs and Features” or “Add or Remove Programs” dialog box, or uninstallation of Internet Explorer 8 is unclean (causing error message such as setup cannot continue because a more recent version of Internet Explorer has been detected on this computer when trying to downgrade to IE7), try to manually run the spuninst.exe.
To do so, go to C:\WINDOWS\ie8\spuninst\ folder (your drive letter may be different), and run spuninst.exe.

Restart the computer after uninstallation completed.

Hope that helps :)

How to fix That problem


Click On Start --> Control Panel --> Add Or Remove Programs --> Make Sure That The Show Updates Box On Top Of The Window Is Checked --> Find WINDOWS INTERNET EXPLORER 8 --> Click On Remove In Front Of It.

WINDOWS INTERNET EXPLORER 8 would be removed and will ask u to restart your system so kindly do that...

After The System Restarts, Follow These steps To Check Whether It Has Removed Windows Internet Explorer 7 as well and if it has you would not see WINDOWS INTERNET EXPLORER 7.

As Internet Explorer 6 Is Integral Part Of Windows XP You Won't See It In Control Panel.

If WINDOWS INTERNET EXPLORER 7 is removed then click the link below and download and install WINDOWS INTERNET EXPLORER 7..

Click Here To Download Internet Explorer 7

In Case You Wish To Download Any Other Version Of Internet Explorer Then See Right Hand Side In The Green Pane And Click any Version Which you Want And Download And Install It From The Same Link As Given Above...
