There is probably an add-on that is failing.  Try to reset IE to see if that fixes it.  It will forget usernames/passwords for the sites that you visit, but will remember your favorites.  You can type the username and password in the next time that you go to those sites.

1. Go to Start | Control Panel
2. Click "Network and Internet"
3. Click the green "Internet Options" text in the middle of the window.
4. Click the "Advanced" tab at the top of the "Internet Properties" window.
5. Click the "Reset" button at the bottom of the window
6. Check all available boxes to reset and then click "Reset".  
7. Close any windows that are open and try to open Internet Explorer again.

Does it work after that?

Netiher of these suggestions worked. I click on IE icon and it flashes a white screen on then off. I cannolt locate where to uninstall from Program and Features and when I tried from a download I have it I get the message "Internet Explore did not finish installing. Setup can't continue because a more recent version is installed on you computer'

Go into the Control Panel then use the "Internet Options" icon.  On the last Tab, you will see a "reset" option.    This can be done without opening IE.

How about upgrading to IE10?    I've installed it and all seems well.

To remove IE, from the "Programs and Features" window, you need to choose "Turn Windows features on or off"  on the left side of the window.

If system repair does not work then you are left with a fresh install

If you have another hard drive you can save the one you have now then copy off and data you might need.

I would definitely try removing and re-installing Internet Explorer before re-installing Windows.    Re-installing Windows is a bunch more work, updating, configuring, etc....
