It may be a Target issue. If you right click your IE icon on the Quick Launch toolbar (bottom left) and select Properties, you can see where IE is trying to start from. It should be something like: "C:\ProgramFiles\InternetExplorer\explorer.exe"

I have checked the properties and it is the same as what you said it would be.

now what do i do?

Reinstall office over your original or run a repair on the installation, in Office 2003 this problem is cured by reinstalling Office Visio.
