Hello My PC is home built with Windows 7 Home Premium (x64).All updates installed. For about a week now !E!! and Firefox won't launch. I have done system restore ; sfc /scannow ,but no success. I have also turned off antivirus and firewall and still no luck. I tried everything i can think of but unsuccessful. Any assistance in helping me solve this problem would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Kindest regards, Karl

Do you get any error messages or does nothing happen at all? Have you tried reinstalling? Maybe also try running it direct from the source file, you are looking for iexplore.exe somewhere in your program files.

If using windows Firewall maybe try resetting it to default and see if that helps.

I always get problems with I/E but seldom use it so it does not bother me that much. So far not had any problems with Firefox. Are you using the updated version of 53.0.2
