If you have the same operating system, same internet explorer version (from any page click the help button on top of page and select "about internet explorer" to see), and same version of Adobe reader then you might consider running a virus scan. I.E is a target for malware.

Tip

A blank Web page is displayed when you start Internet Explorer 7.


Symptom:
loadTOCNode(1, 'symptoms'); When you start Windows Internet Explorer 7, your home page does not open. Instead, a blank Web page is displayed.

Additionally, you may receive an error message that resembles the following:
Line 56
Char:2
Error: Element not found
Code: 0
URL:http://runonce.msn.com/runonce2aspx

This problem typically occurs after you install Internet Explorer 7, after you install Windows, or after you reset Internet Explorer settings. This problem may occur only for certain users.

To have us fix this problem for you, go to the “Fix it for me” section. If you would rather fix this problem yourself, go to the “Let me fix it myself” section.
Cause:
This problem occurs if the Customize Your Settings Web page in Internet Explorer 7 is not loaded correctly or if the Customize Your Settings Web page opens with restricted security settings.
Fix it for me
To fix this problem automatically, click the Fix this problem link. Then click Run in the File Download dialog box, and follow the steps in this wizard.
Fix this problem
Microsoft Fix it 50065
Note: This wizard is temporarily in English only. However, the automatic fix also works for other language versions of Windows.

Note: If you are not on the computer that has the problem, you can save the automatic fix to a flash drive or to a CD, and then you can run it on the computer that has the problem.
Let me fix it myself
To resolve this problem, create and run a Skiprunonce.reg file for each user account that experiences the problem. If you would rather modify the registry directly, see the "Advanced users" section.

To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Start a text editor, such as Notepad.
  2. Copy the following information, paste it into the text editor, and then save the file as Skiprunonce.reg:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main]

    "RunOnceHasShown"=dword:00000001

    "RunOnceComplete"=dword:00000001

  3. Exit the text editor.
  4. Double-click the Skiprunonce.reg file that you created in step 2.

    When you run the Skiprunonce.reg file, you will receive the following message:
    Are you sure you want to add the information in path of .reg file to the registry?
    Click Yes. Then you will receive the following message:
    Information in path of .reg file has been successfully entered into the registry.
Notes:
  • In Windows Vista, when non-administrator users try to run SkipRunOnce.reg they are prompted for an administrator password.
  • To run SkipRunOnce.reg for all users at the same time, modify SkipRunOnce.reg by replacing [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] with [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Main] and then running it as an administrator.

Try a scan with your virus scan, then with a malware scanner, i use Malwarebytes.
I would then use CCleaner, use the registry cleaner also.
This will clean out all your temp files, and remove any registry errors that may be causing IE from starting properly.
You could also use Firefox, or chrome as your browser if this does not fix it

Adobe reader error message


In Internet Explorer, when you click on a link to a pdf file,
you get the error message “Adobe Reader could not open ‘filename.fdf’ because it is either not a supported file type or because the file has been corrupted.”


This error is due to an issue with Adobe Acrobat viewing PDF files in a web browser.
Try the following:

1. Open Internet Explorer, go to Tools -> Internet Options and on the General tab to erase all temporary files, cookies and history data.
2. Under Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options, on the General tab click on Settings and make sure you select the option “Automatically” for checking for newer versions of the stored pages. Then attempt to open the PDC file again.
3. If solutions 1 and 2 do not work then uninstall Adobe Acrobat, then reinstall it again.
It seems that Acrobat 6 is more prone to this error so upgrading to Acrobat 7 may solve the problem.

All d best.

Any furthur help feel free to ask me again i will be more than happy to assist you.
