You most likely had a forced I.E. upgrade - The default is to basically show nothing.
Go near the top to the right and right mouse click - You will see Menu, Favorites Bar, etc - Just click on them tho bring everything back.  Under Tools - internet options you can set your home page etc

Make sure Windows is updated....

Try to open Internet Explorer without in safe mode...

Type:  iexplore -extoff  -----> Start ------> Search and hit Enter.

Try to perform a system restore......

windows key + r

Type: sysdm.cpl ------> System Protection -------> System Restore

Depending on what operating system, you can try uninstalling IE10 temporarily. Go to Windows Updates, Installed Updates, and scroll down looking for IE10. Uninstall the update. That takes you back to IE9.  Ensure it is working correctly.

Now restart and try updating to IE10 again. You can also go to IE11 on Windows 7 and greater.

Have you tried just opening it without extensions?  Right click on IE and choose to open with extensions disabled (or in some OSes that is a separate shortcut).
