You could also try the following:

Right-Click your Internet Explorer icon, and choose 'internet properties'. Then click on the 'Advanced' tab at the top, and click the 'Reset...' button at the bottom of the window. Then click 'OK', let it finish, and then close IE, and then re-open it.

It should work fine.
