Remove all malware
The Internet Explorer installed on your system might not be opening up because of malware infections within the system. Malware infections damage application files of the Internet Explorer browser so that users would not be able to retrieve malware removal information from the Internet. Such problems can be fixed by removing all malware from the system using a good antivirus program or a malware removal tool.
Clear registry errors
Registry contains information regarding the working of Windows based computers. All applications installed on the computer have an associated registry entry. If the registry entries associated with Internet Explorer are clashing with some other obsolete registry entries, then Internet Explorer application would not open up. Such problems can be fixed by clearing unwanted registry entries from the system using a registry cleaning software.
If some of the system files or the application files essential for the functioning of Internet Explorer get damaged in some way, then Internet Explorer would not open up. Windows users having problems with the working of Internet Explorer are suggested to check the integrity of the system files on the OS using 'sfc/ scannow' command in the 'CMD' and if some system files are found damaged, the OS would have to be repaired to solve the issue. If the problem is not solved even after repairing the OS, then it is suggested that users reinstall the Internet Explorer application with the help of the 'Add/ remove Windows' option in the 'Control Panel' to clear off errors and to get the Internet Explorer working well.
