Basically, IE refuses to open up at all, via the shortcut, or using start run.

I have tried tweaking the Security Permissions, but i must be missing something.

I also tried to check my spybot settings, in case something in IE was immunized.

I am stumped, can anyone help me?

Unfortunately, none of that has worked for me.

I uninstalled, re-installed, removed service packs.

Any other ideas?

Now everytime i uninstall or re-install ie, Easy CD Creator 5 keeps asking for it's cd, and it refuses to let it be uninstalled.

I can't get IE to work, so i am using mozilla.

I keep getting Access to the specified device, path, or file is denied.

Please help me.

BTW i found out, that ie was setup correctly, but my firewall kept denying me access to it.
I finally fixed it, by changing the permissions.

Kerio 4 really bites, it is too easy to screw up.

I've been trying to fix this problem as well, read and tried your solution, and Kerio 4 was the culprit here too!

I guess its a love hate relationship with the firewall because it is so capable and protective, the user needs to pay attention and know what they are doing with the settings. I can't even remember denying IE but at some point I must have.

same problem here and same cause: kerio personal firewall.
the catch is the field "launching others". if internet explorer is not allowed thing like "view source" open downloads directly etc will not work.
