Irratic Shortcuts

I have a Dell Dimension 8300 and use IE 6 with XP Home SP2. I have a shortcut to IE on my desk top and there is also one in my start menu. On occations if I double click the desk top icon the egg-timer appears an d then nothing! The same happens if I try the shortcut on the start menu. If this happens I have to open favourites on the start menu and click one of the pages listed there to open IE. At other times I can open it with the desk top shortcut. What is happening??

Woodchip - I am a bit worried now - I do not have IE or Microsoft IE listed in the Add/Remove list in control panel.
