Do a repair of Internet Explorer.

From Control Panel select Add/Remove Programs. scroll down to Microsoft Internet Explorer and highlight it. Click on the Add/Remove button. When the IE Tools menu comes up, select Repair. Click OK.

If this problem happend within the last 5 days, do a restore of the registry. Select Start > Run and type scanreg /restore

Check for corrupted files with SFC. Select Start > Run and type SFC

If that does not work, go to www.windows.com, and make sure you are running the newest version of IE, and have all updates for it.
