Sounds like a browser hijack to me. What operating system are you using and also what version of Internet Explorer ?

Basic IE troubleshooting always begins with clearing your temp files, cookies, and browsing history. To access your internet options go to your control panel and double click the icon labeled "Internet" options. Click the appropriate buttons to clear those items and try to load the program again.

If you are using IE 7/8 you can try to run the program without loading any add-ons to see if one of them is causing the problems. To do this, click Start -

SOURCE: Icons are no longer visible since installing Internet Explorer 8

recommend reinstalling the software, you shouldn't lose anything unless someone did a custom install of the software.. but if it was a standard install all your records should be where you left them.. WARNING!! IF you are told you must uninstall the software first do NOT select YES to the question if the directory should be deleted.. IOW KEEP the directory if possible.

The internet explorer icon is not responding (no matter how many times i clik)?


It is possible that the shortcut icon is broken. Click start and then click Internent Explorer apposed to clicking it on your desktop.

I would also recommend installing the latest available Internet Explorer for your computer.
Click here to download Windows Internet Explorer 8.( For Microsoft Windows XP or Vista.)
Click here to download Windows Internet Explorer 9.( For Microsoft Windows Vista or 7.)

Be sure to select your version of Microsoft Windows under the correct language. Click the download button to proceed.

Take care!
